Reading through the documentation, I noticed that the MovieLens datasets include much more than just userIds, movieIds, ratings and titles.
My question is: How/Where would I incorporate this additional information in building either a NN or using the dot product+bias method presented in the lesson 4 notebook?
Lets say I wanted to code and include the genres identified for each movie, where each movieId is associated to a vector where each element represents a genre (1 if movie part of that genre, 0 otherwise). Where would this be plugged into the NN?
Or lets say I wanted to include a bias term into the NN (like to dot product+bias example) … where would this get plugged in?
