Master thesis on Recommender Systems in collaboration with the Munich based Startup Venn
TL;DR: Build a recommender system using the latest ML techniques
- Take full ownership of the development of a recommender algorithm using real-life data
- Devise experiments to validate and compare the efficacy of your algorithms
- Work closely with technical founders to devise a scalable deployment strategy
- Set up tracking and analytics to improve the algorithm long term
About Introducing Venn!
We (Mark and Till) are two tech founders with a passion to build and deliver products.
We met and became close friends at one of Europe's leading AI startups. Being part of growing the company from 10 to 100+ employees, we know what it takes to scale teams successfully and build exciting products at a rapid pace. After three priceless years, we decided it's time to embark on a new adventure.
Our vision is to build an app that brings social recommendations online. We are currently in the pre-launch/prototyping phase and are aiming to launch our product by the end of September. Join us now and help Venn
to take off!
