Metis and Dataiku join to host two talks on user-focused data science and building a more comprehensive view of what individuals really want. In this talk, Harlan Harris, Director of Data Science at WayUp, discusses how constraints from the business model and site design are reflected in the design of WayUp's job recommendations system. He will then dive into one sub-component of the system -- the algorithms used to identify job listings that are similar to listings that a user previously interacted with. On text such as job listings, naive similarity approaches can be problematic, and lead to poor recommendations. Instead, they use historical data and a custom similarity function to identify listings that returning users will find most compelling. Harlan D. Harris has a PhD in Computer Science/Machine Learning from the University of Illinois, and worked as a Cognitive Psychology researcher before turning to industry. He is currently Director of Data Science at WayUp, and has previously worked at Kaplan Test Prep, The Advisory Board Company, and several startups. Harlan co-founded the Data Science DC Meetup and Data Community DC, and co-wrote Analyzing the Analyzers, a short O'Reilly book about the variety of data scientists.
