How Does Your Netflix Know What You Want to Watch Next?… Dhivya Venkatachalam – Family Session

Family Session recommended age 7+

Is Netflix a Mindreader?

In this session we will look at the Netflix recommendation engine and the complex web of data that goes into recommending movies for us to watch. We will try creating our own moviedata-web to understand and appreciate the data behind the scenes.
