Learn to Deploy a Recommender Model as a RESTful Service to a Webpage

October 5, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

NOTE: Please sign-in at the registration area at the entrance. Thank you! 

In this talk, Matthew Mahowald, lead data scientist at Open Data Group, will go through the process of creating and deploying a simple “find me a place to live” recommender model using a RESTful interface.  

Matt will start by reviewing the mathematical concepts of the model, and share how that model is implemented in python.   Next, Matt will deploy the trained model as a RESTful service via FastScore, and cover the important differences between creating and deploying a model.   Once the model is deployed, Matt will share how to connect the deployed model to a simple webpage front end that queries the model (as a service) and can be used to recommend places to live.

Join us at Metis for this fun, informative session of what it means to both create and the deploy a model to build a web based service
