  • Singular Value Decompositions (SVD) have become very popular in the field of Collaborative Filtering. The winning entry for the famed Netflix Prize had a number of SVD models including SVD++ blended with Restricted Boltzmann Machines. Using these methods they achieved a 10 percent increase in accuracy over Netflix’s existing algorithm. In this paper I explore the different facets of a successful recommender model. I also will explore a few of the more prominent SVD based models such as… CONTINUE READING
