Building a Movie Recommendation Engine with Naïve Bayes

As promised, in this chapter, we will kick off our supervised learning journey with machine learning classification, and specifically, binary classification. The goal of the chapter is to build a movie recommendation system. It is a good starting point to learn classification from a real-life example—movie streaming service providers are already doing this, and we can do the same. You will learn the fundamental concepts of classification, including what it does and its various types and applications, with a focus on solving a binary classification problem using a simple, yet powerful, algorithm, Naïve Bayes. Finally, the chapter will demonstrate how to fine-tune a model, which is an important ...
