For those of you familiar with the Netflix Prize, the 10% improvement barrier was broken yesterday by Bellkor Pragmatic Chaos! Just as I had started to consider entering, too. The math is somewhat arcane to me, but I’m learning quickly. I’m going to continue working on it even though the competition is over just because AI is so cool. And I want to see if a highschooler can do close to as well as a team of professionals. But since that’s no longer really a viable option as a contest, I think I will concentrate my energies on Extend Firefox.
