So, I have a Netflix contestant that gets 0.978279 on the probe set. That would be on the leaderboard in like 10th place or so at the moment, but it's behind CineMatch and well behind the leaders who are now beating Cinematch (but still way off the 10% improvement needed to win). I'm guessing that the people who have gotten close to Cinematch know something of the standard algorithms in this field and have implemented one of them. LOL I guess that's a good approach. My app is really slow despite fitting all the data in RAM. I haven't run it on the full qualifier set yet, just the probe which is like 5X smaller, and it takes me a full day to run on the probe.
