LinkedIn at RecSys 2012

September 4th, 2012 · 6 Comments · General

LinkedIn is an industry leader in the area of recommender systems — a place where big data meets clever algorithms and content meets social. If you’re one of the 175M+ people using LinkedIn, you’ve probably noticed some of our recommendation products, such People You May KnowJobs You Might Be Interested In, and LinkedIn Today.

So it’s no surprise we’re participating in the 6th ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2012), which will take place in Dublin next week.

Here’s a preview:

I hope to see many of you at the conference, especially if you’re interested in learning about opportunities to work on recommendation systems and related areas at LinkedIn. And perhaps you can provide your own recommendations — specifically, local pubs where we can take in the local spirit.

See you in Dublin. Sláinte!

    Why can’t LinkedIn use this industry leading knowledge and tackle the spam problem in groups? Spam is almost a solved problem, yet LinkedIn groups is full of it.

    Tycho, various folks at LinkedIn are working on tackling spam problems. Clearly we have room for improvement.

    I hope to see you at the conference. I won’t get in till Sunday night so will miss the workshop – sorry. But let’s catch up at some point over a local tipple.

    Nic, looking forward to seeing you there! Been far too long since we’ve been in the same hemisphere.
