# Fitted Latent Factors Model

A Fitted Latent Factors Model is a fitted model that is based on a latent factors model family.

**Context:**- It can be created by a Latent Factors Model Training System (that solves a latent factors model training task).
- …

**Counter-Example(s):****See:**Latent Factor, PCA Model, SVD Model.

- QUOTE: Latent Factor models are a state of the art methodology for model-based collaborative filtering. The basic assumption is that there exist an unknown low-dimensional representation of users and items where user-item affinity can be modeled accurately. For example, the rating that a user gives to a movie might be assumed to depend on few implicit factors such as the user’s taste across various movie genres. Matrix factorization techniques are a class of widely successful Latent Factor models that attempt to find weighted low-rank approximations to the user-item matrix, where weights are used to hold out missing entries. There is a large family of matrix factorization models based on choice of loss function to measure approximation quality, regularization terms to avoid overfitting, and other domain-dependent formulations.
