Connecting the Dining Dots: Enabling a Personalized Dining Experience at OpenTable

Abstract :

At OpenTable, we help diners find the best dining experiences, wherever they travel. One of the key problems for accomplishing this is providing personalized recommendations. We have been leveraging our large corpus of unstructured reviews to build models to improve the accuracy of these recommendations. We will discuss how we stitch together learnings from various sources into a seamless experience for the diner.
