Event Details

Beyond machine and Datalyst Academy are presenting you with a unique Bootcamp. 

Machine Learning & Deep Learning Bootcamp: Building Recommender System 
Instructed by Dr. Stylianos Kampakis

Do you want to learn how to build a recommender system? Or are you a company that is
looking to implement a recommender system, but you are not sure where to start?

This course will teach you how!

The course is designed in a unique format, that allows online, offline and classroom
interaction, and allows the participants to learn at their own pace before the Bootcamp, but also to join in a class the same day.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • What are recommendation engines

  • How does a recommendation engine work?

  • Data collection and data storage

  • Filtering the data

  • Content-based filtering and Collaborative filtering

  • The case study in Python using the public dataset

  • Building a collaborative filtering model from scratch

  • Building Simple popularity and collaborative filtering model 

  • Building a recommendation engine 

  • Evaluation metrics for recommendation engines

How is the course structured?

The course is done in partnership with Datalyst Academy: a data science bootcamp platform
that combines the best approaches from online learning, offline learning, university courses,
bootcamps and workshops.

The course is structured as follows:

1) Kick-off webinar. There will be a 2-hour live introductory webinar, during which the
participants will be introduced to basic machine learning concepts and the course.

The participants can either take the webinar from the comfort of their own
home/office or come to meet other participants in Berlin. 

2) Online platform. The participants will get access to the online content two weeks before the Bootcamp which includes both videos and curated content. They can study the content at their own pace.

3) Once the participants finish with the content, they will start working on the lab. They
have 2 weeks to complete the lab.

3) During this process, the participants will be mentored by the instructor, through our
slack channel, and skype (if need be).

4) There will be another 2-hours final webinar, which will be done in a classroom. The
participants will discuss any questions they might have.

The participants who purchased VIP TICKETS can choose to work on their own recommender
system(e.g: from your company or your personal project). They also get 2-weeks of extra mentorship.

Also, anyone who signs up for this workshop gets 20% off from the Datalyst Academy program! 

Why do we introduce this new format? 

Beyond Machine has done training offline over the last 2.5 years. Although we believe in an offline meeting, in reality, there still comes numerous constraints and high risk of canceling and not able to make it due to traveling incidents for both our trainers and participants. Not mention the scalability of the training. We still would like to keep an offline touch, but we also add up the new format of online. Therefore, participants can participate anywhere they want, they can also study and prepare the course materials before because we all know to go through the lab data, it takes probably around 8 hours not 3 hours, and it just makes better sense to work on it before by yourself. Of course, you can certainly come and join us on the same day in Berlin. 

We are a partner with Datalyst Academy which was founded by Stylianos Kampskis, our best trainer. Our Bootcamp will keep the seat and time-limited. therefore, if you want to join. Sign up now before the price goes up in 2020. 


Module 1: Evaluating Recommender Systems
Module 2: A Recommender Engine Framework
Module 3: Content-Based Filtering

Module 4: Neighbourhood-Based Collaborative Filtering 

Module 5: Matrix Factorization Methods

Module 6: Introduction to Deep Learning 

Module 7: Deep Learning For Recommender Systems and scaling up

Who should attend?

  • Data scientist who wants robust or learn more different applications

  • Data Analyst: Companies who would like to offer re-education to their analytics team to their data science team or just upgrade yourself from analyst to data scientist. 

  • Developer, who wants to know more about the algorithm or even think about switching to the data scientist

  • Business Intelligence (BI): You are already familiar with statistics, want to understand better machine learning and deep learning


“Stylianos brings great enthusiasm to his workshop – his interest in all things AI shines through.” - Tim
Gordon, Chief Executive at the Liberal Democrats
Stylianos’s bespoke workshop allows for in-depth complicated analytical concepts to be understood
in a manageable and easy way. Coving the background of the constant changing world of data
science and breaking down the key concepts of data science." - Dominik Byrne, Investor,
Entrepreneur, Advisor

What will participants need to know or do before starting this course?

This course is ideal for the analyst, junior data scientist, and BI also developer. A bit of
knowledge of Python or machine learning will help you but it is not required. Have some
familiarity with basic programming concepts or languages or statistics. Therefore, experience in
Python or Machine Learning is not required but will help.

If you are not sure about your level, write to 

What does the price reflect?

The price reflects two things. First, it distills 10+ years of experience in a few hours, providing only the
most relevant pieces of knowledge, without all the useless jargon and the buzzwords. Secondly, it
reflects the consultancy service which participants will get out of the workshop, and which is usually
charged at much higher rates.

What are the problem-solving sessions about?

During the problem-solving sessions, we will solve live on the blackboard any kind of problem the
audience poses. 

The seats are limited to 12 people

¹ Dr. Stylianos Kampakis is an expert data scientist (with a decade of experience), member of the
Royal Statistical Society, an honorary research fellow at the UCL Centre for Blockchain
Technologies and startup consultant living and working in London. A natural polymath, with degrees
in Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, Statistics, Economics and a Ph.D. in Computer Science
from University College London he loves using his broad skillset to solve difficult problems. You can
