I'm trying to learn to use AI, and so I've followed some basic tutorials like training an MLP to predict the price of a car given properties like its age and manufacturer. Now I want to see if I can do it myself, so I thought it'd be fun to predict what score I would give a movie given some data scraped off IMDB.
I immediately got stuck, because how do you deal with the cast? A single property with multiple values, where a particular actor may impact the final score (or a combination of actors - that's for the neurons to suss out).
I haven't found a way to do this when googling, but it may just be that I'm unfamiliar with the terminology. Or have I accidentally chosen a really difficult problem?
Note that I'm completely new to all of this, so if you have suggestions, please try to put it as simply as possible.
