Alexandros Karatzoglou

Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Recommender Systems

Senior Research Scientist at Telefonica Research in lively Barcelona.

Working on Deep Learning for Recommender Systems with a focus on Ranking algorithms, Context-awareness and Scalability. Implemented Recommender Systems for App discovery and Social Networks.

My research in Machine Learning and Recommender Systems was awarded with three best paper awards at ECML/PKDD 2013, RecSys 2012 and ECML 2008. I regularly serve as a Senior PC at ACM RecSys and have been a PC member for KDD, WWW, WSDM, ICML, NIPS, ECML/PKDD.

kernlab, is Machine Learning package for R that I wrote that has become fairly popular. I am also co-author of CoFiRank, a collection of algorithms in C++ for Collaborative Ranking.

Received my Ph.D. in Machine Learning from the Vienna University of Technology while being a frequent visitor at the Statistical Machine Learning group at NICTA in Canberra, Australia.
