### Is sklearn using both a threshold and a bias term? [closed]

Reading this Can a neuron have both a bias and a threshold? has confused me, as it appears to be more common to use a threshold of 0 when using bias. But reading this https://stackoverflow.com/...

### Is it possible that k-means generates a cluster with no points in it, if the initial centroid is not properly set and no of cluster is large?

Is it possible that sklearn's k-means algorithm will generate a cluster that has no points at all, given that the number of k is large and the initial centroid is just random? Furthermore, will k-...

### How matrix factorization helps with recommendations when it converges to the initial user-items matrix?

We can say that matrix factorization of a matrix $R$, in general, is finding two matrices $P$ and $Q$ such that $R \approx P.Q^{T}$ with some constraints on $P$ and $Q$. Looking at some matrix ...
