A Brief Review of “Collaborative Filtering for Implicit Feedback Datasets” by Y. Hu, Y. Koren and C. Volinsky

During a recruitment process that I took part in, I was asked to write a review of the paper Collaborative Filtering for Implicit Feedback Datasets (2009) by Y. Hu, Y. Koren and C. Volinsky.  In the review I gave a Bayesian interpretation of the model, which makes some of the parameters easier to interpret and might be of interest to some people.  I have therefore included the (anonymized) version of the review here for download for anyone who is interested.
