Recent announcement: Netflix Offers $1 Million Prize For Improved System

The objective is to improve ratings by a minimum of 10%. To help you Netflix will provide a sample (100 million records, so don't be looking at Excel). The objective is to close the gap between 'predictied rating' and 'actual rating.'

At last count there were 9,000 teams and over 150 entries to date. Nobody's close yet.
