Online Recommendation Info Sessions
I am available to give informational talks, training sessions, and workshops on recommender systems to library staff and patrons. Contact me to set up a session with your library, or a group of libraries in your area!
These sessions teach:
- What online recommendation is
- Where recommendations come from (both economically and technically)
- How recommendations and advertising relate
- How you can take (some) control over your recommendations
These workshops are available at no charge. I am currently offering these online, and once travel is safe again, I have funds to travel Idaho and help libraries and patrons better understand, control, and use recommendation technology. I basically owe my career to a public library, and am thrilled to be able to contribute back.
