Η εκδήλωση

Hey good people,
June is a busy month. Lots of conferences, too much work – but we ain’t done yet. GreeceJS will close this season with two of its most respected community members on the podium.
Avraam Mavridis (from Berlin) will introduce us to Recommender Systems, such as Spotify’s «discover music» feature – an interesting talk with lots of CS involved. Immediately after, the notorious Theodore Vorillas will talk about accessibility in IoT physical objects – how about that (!!).
Join us on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at InnovAthens powered by Samsung – Hub of Innovation & Entrepreneurship of Technopolis City of Athens.

Introduction to Recommender Systems (gr)
- Avraam Mavridis, Senior Software Engineer @Raisin GmbH
#### Summary
Recommender systems are significant tools for companies like Amazon (e.g. «Inspired by your Wish List»), Spotify (e.g. «Discover Weekly») and Netflix (e.g. «Top Picks for You»). This talk is an introduction to the concepts of Recommender Systems (Collaborative Filtering, Distance Metrics, Content Based Models). Apart from the theoretical part behind the Recommender Systems, there will be practical examples and a demo of building a Recommender System using Neural Networks with BrainJS.
20:00 – 20:45
A11Y IRL (Accessibility in real life) (gr)
- Theodore Vorillas, Front End Developer @Workable
#### Summary
The year is 2018, and accessibility is not a buzzword anymore. It’s now imperative that information is readily available to everyone, regardless of their disability or financial status. In this talk, you’ll find out how to create accessible real life objects, using run-of-the-mill JavaScript and the basic principles of Internet of Things.
