Chanyoung Park, a member of POSTECH Data mining Lab (http://dm.postech.ac.kr), won the 10th place (top 1.1%) in the ACM RecSys Challenge 2015 (http://2015.recsyschallenge.com/) in which more than 850 teams from 49 countries have participated. The competition is the official challenge of the ACM RecSys conference, the premier international conference on recommender systems. The goal of this year's competition was to predict 1) whether the user will buy something or not, and if he/she is buying, 2) what items he/she will buy. The proposed model will be published and presented in the ACM RecSys conference 2015.

POSTECH attains advanced research capabilities with 150 node high performance computing cluster
posted Mar 23, 2011, 12:03 PM by Taehoon Kim [ updated May 15, 2012, 9:33 PM by Hwanjo Yu ]
With a 150 node high performance computing cluster we're able to complete larger scale research projects and advanced computation problems.
Each cluster node has 24 GB memory, 3 TB hard disk space and 2 hexa-core CPUs (in total, 3600 Cores, 3.6 Terabyte memory, 450 Terabyte HDD). By deploying a 150 node Dell PowerEdge R610 rack server cluster with Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series and Dell PowerConnect 6248 Ethernet switches housed within PowerEdge Rack 4210 server enclosures, POSTECH created a flexible and powerful HPC solution that can scale to meet the department’s growing research needs.
Professor Yu comments, “Working on data-intensive research projects such as developing intelligent search engines is now possible for our students and faculty.”
