Abstract: In the workshop, I will walk you through building a recommender system from learned embeddings in a fashion e-commerce platform. You will learn how to collect and represent the users' interaction data, building a model to generate embeddings and how to use approximate nearest neighbour algorithms to build a similarity model. You will also learn how to tackle the cold start problem and finally the techniques whereby you can evaluate the recommendation systems.
