At the sold-out Spark & Machine Learning Meetup in Brussels on October 27, 2016, Nick Pentreath of the Spark Technology Center teamed up with Jean-François Puget of IBM Analytics to deliver a talk called Creating an end-to-end Recommender System with Apache Spark and Elasticsearch.
Jean-François and Nick started with a look at the workflow for recommender systems and machine learning, then moved on to data modeling and using Spark ML for collaborative filtering. They closed with a discussion of deploying and scoring the recommender models, including a demo.
