Project: Recommendation engine based on user behavior Nov 2016 to Sep 2017
Bethlehem, PA
Role: Hadoop Developer

The scope of the project is to use the customer transaction data in store and online over a period of time to recommend items to customer, that they will find engaging depending on their age, gender, shopping habits. Another concept is a recommendation engine that introduces new products to a customer for which they might not came across before. In order to achieve these goals, we perform data exploration to learn about user behavior and demographics. We perform future engineering to create new features from existing features that truly reflects the signals in the data and avoid noise.
