Join Us: An Introduction to Using k-NN in Production

by on September 28, 2016

Join us next Wednesday, October 5 for a webinar hosted by our Chief Data Scientist covering best practices for using k-NN in production.

The k-Nearest Neighbors (k-NN) algorithm is a popular method for pattern recognition. It is often one of the first algorithms that budding data scientists learn. Despite its popularity and deceptive simplicity, k-NN can be tricky to use with production data.

Domino’s Chief Data Scientist, Eduardo Ariño de la Rubia, will discuss best practices for implementing k-NN in production during a webinar scheduled for October 5 at 11am PT. You can register here for the live event and if you can’t make it, we’ll send you a link to the recording.

The talk will cover:

  • Implementations of k-NN in R and Python;
  • Performance characteristics of k-NN in product scenarios;
  • Common pitfalls of using k-NN in production, and how to avoid them.

We hope to see you next Wednesday, October 5th!
