I was invited to give a guest lecture today to the Furman University Big Data: Mining and Analytics (CSC272). Special thanks to Dr. Kevin Treu, department chair of Furman’s Computer Science program for the invite. We had a great time diving into the many different kinds of data mining and analytics used by search and recommendations to learn from users and turn that learning into actionable intelligence to drive more and more relevant search experiences. Slides from the presentation are available below.
