Content discovery is a core part of Sky services which creates a smart way to help customers to discover the best contents they can watch, all in a personalised manner. Our content discovery capability covers a number of services such as content recommendation, smart search and personalization. In this talk, we will overview our achievements in creating content discovery capabilities and our unique journey on achieving our objectives. Looking ahead, we will also introduce a brand-new capability from our data science research about establishing smooth communications between human and machine using moods.

Short Bio

Hubert started his career in a small consultancy in Paris expert in SmallTalk. He then funded Zenika (www.zenika.com) another consultancy in Paris. He met his wife soon after and left his entrepreneurship adventure (it was more of a pause) to move into Switzerland to live the dream and top it off with chocolate. There he migrated 10 millions LOCs in Cobol of a Private Banking ERP to Java. To recover, he left the comfort of the bank for a start-up doing Scala. After the bankruptcy, he found himself on an island (UK) working for Amazon. In 2014, he decided that the world's best customer-led entertainment and communications company needed a hand so joined Sky. Since then, he's made a living by having people work together, be data-driven to give way to their best ideas and help them believe in better.

Abstract

This talk will cover the main concepts of Machine Learning, and how it can be applied in several domains. Despite introducing fundamental concepts like classification, regression, and complex algorithms like support vector machines, neural networks and random forests, the talk will have very practical examples with running code. The audience is supposed to be able to code a little project using ML after this talk.
