How Movie Recommendation Systems Work
Unfortunately, Scientific American online does not give you access to all of the article – only to the clever explanation. Which, after you think carefully about it, leaves some questions unanswered.
Never mind, I am going to take the online Caltech course Learning from Data. As it says:
A real Caltech course, not a watered-down version
I have the advantage of being a failure in California high-tech. But I learned enough, despite my scar-tissue, to be interested in it.
Unfortunately, the registration process is flawed. Can you imagine – a university site that has a defective Human-Computer Interface (another course I am taking)? And no way for users to help them fix this!
I can also recommend Scientific American itself. It has improved from what it used to be, and makes a worthwhile addition to your paper inbox.
