Can someone help me in which algo to use for Movielens dataset?
I have transformed the feature with OHE(dummy var method) and where I have to predict the movie ratings by the user i.e the label is of 5 levels, please let me know the best algo for this model with some useful description.
Ps: A beginner in DataScience and ML.

Hi @ehsanarif,

You can start with a simple popularity model or collaborative filtering model for the MovieLens dataset. To learn further on these models, you can refer the below mentioned article.

Once you have the understanding of these models, you can apply advanced methods like matrix factorization to improve the predictions. To learn more about matrix factorization and its implementations, refer here:
