How can we amaze the citizens of Antwerp with personalized tips for the cultural offering?

One of the new projects involved building a data platform with a recommendation engine on top, and a user interface, to provide personalized content for the cultural users in Antwerp. Infofarm was chosen as the partner to build a generic data lake and Machine Learning environment, which Digipolis could then easily reuse for new innovative solutions involving data and Advanced Analytics.
