[D] Does it possible to cluster restaurant dishes? • r/MachineLearning

@machinelearnbot

I have data about restaurants, their dishes and customer's orders. Then I want to cluster dishes in restaurant's menu by customer order. So clusters will be dishes in order and criteria of similarity will be price, ingredients and location of restaurant where dish is served. For example if there is a Americano coffee in the order so result will be all coffees of all restaurants no farther then 100 metres from user(for example), and no more expensive than ordered coffee. Seems like recommendation system, yes.


5 security mistakes you're probably making

#artificialintelligence

Earlier this year, Libratus, an artificial intelligence, made headlines by besting poker champions from around the world in Texas Hold'Em. Astrophysicist and professional poker player Liv Boeree looks beyond the game to imagine how a supercomputer-driven AI can solve some of humanity's biggest problems. Invented by Carnegie Mellon professor Dr. Tuomas Sandholm and powered by HPE technology, Libratus is capable of much more than mastering a mathematically-complex card game.

What your Tinder profile picture really reveals about you

Daily Mail

While dating and personal ads have been around for decades, the way we meet the people we date has changed dramatically in the last five years. Dating apps such as Tinder have captured a large portion of the online dating market. These apps, but especially Tinder, have transformed the way we represent ourselves online when we date. Men are likely to signal specific resources or potential for acquiring resources, while women are more likely to signal pro-social behaviours such as benevolence, charitable work or virtue, researchers found. While attractiveness is important, users are actually signalling much more than just stereotypical looks.

How to Use Predictive Selling

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled sales technologies have made predictive selling a reality by combining data and analytics to drive sales success. AI can help salespeople prioritize leads and make relevant product or service recommendations using data science to provide guidance. This frees sales teams to focus on the art of sales and build relationships that lead to new opportunities. However, one of the most transformative facets of AI-driven predictive selling is its potential to help sales teams make the leap from static to real-time action. With this approach, AI can provide a path to success by examining buyer behavior and analyzing other data (e.g., social media) to identify signals playing out in real time.
