Build a recommender system using Apache Spark and Akka

Machine Learning is still very magical to some. The truth, however, is that this magic is actually much easier to use than you’d expect. Come and learn how you can use Apache Spark and Akka together to build a service that recommends items to users.

In this session Willem shows you some of the bits that go into building a recommender system, how to actually implement one in Spark and finally how to integrate the recommender system into your application using Akka HTTP.
