Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll build a movie recommendation system based on movies that your users have previously interacted with. This system is designed to boost engagement and keep your users on your site. You’ll develop a competitive array of similarity functions, and create your own recommender system based on these similarities. Finally, you’ll evaluate your system’s effectiveness and tune its parameters.
