An Insight into Predictive Modeling

Sitting idle on a Friday afternoon, you might feel like watching a movie on TV. But, surfing so many channels you cannot find a suitable one for yourself! You then move back to your laptop and search online to get a good movie to watch. What do you think would be a good idea? The most popular options would be YouTube or Netflix. They are always ready with a lot of recommendations for you. Have you ever thought how these recommendation engines work?

Let's not fight

Being a part of this internetaholic generation you are sure the odd one if you never faced any online debate issue. There is no such fact for which an opposition party does not appear. Currently there are 7 billion people in the world and consequently, we have equal number of minds. Different minds have different opinions. But the problem is when we try to establish our judgment we start to fight and often we do not realize and listen to what other people have to say. There could be pros and cons for everything. However, these fights are often never ending!
