About this event

In collaboration with IBM, GDG Sharjah is glad to invite you to a Deep Learning workshop series! This new advanced level series for audiences interested to specialize in Machine Learning and Deep Learning

🌟 Workshop Overview

Recommendation engines are an integral part of our lives and touch us with nearly every digital service we use these days. They allow users to gain a personalized experience based on their behavior and are used by most popular media & e-commerce platforms.

In this fourth and last workshop of the Your Path to Deep Learning series, you will learn how to build a Restricted Boltzmann Machine using TensorFlow that will give you recommendations based on movies that have been watched. The data sets used in the workshops are from GroupLens, and contain movies, users, and movie ratings.

You'll learn to use a sigmoid activation function for the neural network, and the recommendations returned are based on the recommendation score generated by a Restricted Boltzmann Machine (RBM) using Collaborative Filtering.

πŸŽ“ What will you learn?
