From Idea to Execution: Spotify's Discover Weekly
This awesome talk by Chris Johnson and Edward Newett, machine learning engineers at Spotify, shows how they imagined, tested, iterated and built the highly-popular "Discover Weekly" feature of Spotify from start to finish.
Learn how product-oriented engineers think in this talk and the tradeoffs they make as they're looking for ways to rapidly test ideas and iterate. Of course, this product was built on music recommendations, so you'll also get to see how they thought through the process to figure out exactly how to generate meaningful recommendations for their millions of users.
This talk was a talk recorded at the DataEngConf 2015 event in NYC.
