Siempre he tenido la inquietud fallida de comentar acerca de los eventos a los cuales por una u otra razón asisto, la mayoría de las veces para aprender y otras para poder generar networking, principalmente dentro de temas de emprendimiento, diseño y negocios. Así pues, en Bogotá tuvimos la gran oportunidad de vivir un evento de carácter global, como lo es un TEDx, iniciativa independiente bajo los parámetros de TED Global, gracias a la iniciativa de @young_marketing y a un gran equipo de trabajo que durante 2 años buscaron que esta oportunidad se diera en la ciudad. Mi participación se dio principalmente por mi gusto por las charlas y por los vídeos que constantemente se publican dentro de la plataforma, e incluso, de forma independiente en YouTube, muchos de ellos de lugares recónditos como África. Paso pues, a contar mis comentarios y opiniones:
by May’s Closet * Worry is a mechanism of our psyche that prompts us to do something. The prompting energy is fear – usually fear of some consequence. Because it is fear, the person tends to avoid thinking about it. Thus worry tends to perpetuate itself in a circular way – the fear causes non-action, and non-action further causes worry. * Anxiety is a fear whose object is nonspecific or vague, whereas worry is about something specific and identified.

About me and why I read this book I've been programming professionally for ~7.5 years, mainly business applications and reporting, so I already have quite some love for data. While I haven't used math much in my day jobs, I liked (and was good at) it in high school, including taking extra classes - so I have learned basic statistics. Refreshing and advancing my data analytics skills is one of my goals this year, and reading this book was part of the plan. About the book
Recommender systems or recommendation systems (sometimes replacing "system" with a synonym such as platform or engine) are a subclass of information filtering system that seek to predict the 'rating' or 'preference' that user would give to an item (such as music , books , or movies ) or social element (e.g. people or groups ) they had not yet considered, using a model built from the characteristics of an item (content-based approaches) or the user's social environment (collaborative filtering approaches). [ 1 ] [ 2 ] Recommender systems have become extremely common in recent years. A few examples of such systems: When viewing a product on Amazon.com , the store will recommend additional items based on a matrix of what other shoppers bought along with the currently selected item. [ 3 ] Pandora Radio takes an initial input of a song or musician and plays music with similar characteristics (based on a series of keywords attributed to the inputted artist or piece of music).
