Machine Learning – Week 9

Week 9 covered one of the most widespread applications of Machine Learning – Recommender Systems. These are the systems that churn business for e-commerce sites like Amazon and the streaming giant Netflix. Recommender systems take into consideration the past behaviors and decisions of their users and make recommendations of products and services that these users are likely to be interested in.

We also touched ground on Anomaly Detection algorithms which fish out outliers or anomalies from a dataset by running probability density analysis like Gaussians on the dataset.
