Speech Title: Recommendation Systems Approaches in Big Data

Abstract: Intelligent data handling techniques are beneficial for users; to store, process, analyze and access the vast amount of information produced by electronic and automated devices. The leading approach is to use recommender systems (RS) to extract relevant information from the vast amount of knowledge, and quickly aid the process of information seeking. This talk will focus on the applications of RS in E-Commerce, E-Learning, Multimedia and Tourism domains. The future research direction of RS in Big Data will also be discussed, particularly on Context-Aware Recommender Systems (CARS) as a leading solution to big data challenges.
