Presentation: Fans just wanna have fun: How 30 years of ticket transaction data helps you discover new shows!


Day of week:

11:55am - 12:45pm

Ticketmaster, the biggest primary ticket issuer and Live Nation, the biggest concert promoter in the world make it possible for hundreds of millions of fans to have a blast at tens of thousands of shows on sale at any point in time.

When U2 or Lady Gaga tickets go on sale the burst of traffic is insane. Even during such crazy times Machine Learning has to:

i) Provide fans with Real-time event recommendations
ii) Detect Bots and ticket scalpers before they snatch tickets from humans as well as
iii) Provide insights to event promoters and artists

You will see how to train models as well as architect and build a scalable system powered by Storm, Hadoop, Spark, Spring Boot and Vowpal Wabbit that meets SLAs measured in tens of milliseconds.
