In this five-part group project, we explain how we created a recommendation system for the website careervillage.org using data analysis and machine learning.

Introduction

CareerVillage is a website that is similar to Quora and Stackoverflow. They allow students to post questions about anything related to their future careers. Volunteers with expertise in various fields then answer their questions. Currently, the website lets professionals follow specific topics (programming, finance, engineering, Python, sports…etc). Then, when students post questions, they specify the topic related to their question and once the question is posted, an email notification is sent to the professional who is following that topic. The website is looking for a more efficient way to send these recommendation questions. The goal of the challenge is to develop a method to recommend relevant questions to the professionals who are most likely to answer them (fast).
