I just found slides from Matt Gormley (CMU) about recommendation systems. Under the heading "Unconstrained Matrix Factorization" he mentions:

  • Optimization problem
  • SGD
  • SGD with Regularization
  • Alternating Least Squares
  • User/item bias terms (matrix trick)

What does "User/item bias terms (matrix trick)" mean?
