Case Study Net­flix movie rec­om­men­da­tions

net magazine - - FEATURES -

Net­flix com­bines a pow­er­ful pre­dic­tion sys­tem, based on a high-vol­ume data con­tin­u­ally col­lected from view­ers. What you watch, how long you do, how of­ten and when you watch is all tracked. Movies are tagged and cat­e­gorised by genre, length, type, ac­tor, theme, di­rec­tor, lo­ca­tion, con­tent and many more data points. Your in­for­ma­tion is also used to in­ter­sect this data. Train­ing is done on mil­lions of view­ers’ watch­ing habits: even­tu­ally the sys­tem has a very ac­cu­rate pre­dic­tion of what you’d like to watch.
