This edition of SEA is in partnership with FNWI. As usual we will have two talks: one academic and one industry talk, followed by drinks. This Friday, we will have a talk by Alexey Borisov (Yandex and University of Amsterdam) and Manos Tsagkias from 904Labs. The talks are focused on the topic of learning from user behavior.
