Julia is a high-level dynamic language which was invented out of greed to do more. Unlike other high-level dynamic languages, Julia is really fast. It inherits design tenets from Lisp, builds on the good parts of C, MATLAB, R, Python and Ruby to create a language that is performant and highly productive at the same time.
We are proud to announce the first ever JuliaCon India. It will feature the creators of the language Jeff Bezanson, Stefan Karpinski, and Viral B Shah, and an enthusiastic contingent of Julia programmers in India. It’s a two-day event consisting of a day-long conference (9th Oct) and a workshop (10th Oct).
Large scale parallel recommender system in Julia
Glimpse of how to efficiently build scalable machine learning algorithms.
In this talk I will demo a movie recommender system, throw some light on the underlying math and how efficient Julia is for building such end to end machine learning systems.
