     The matrix $R$ is given in its sparse representation as a tuple of $(i, j, r)$ where
$i$ denotes the row index, $j$ the column index and $r$ is the matrix value at position $(i,j)$.
    +An alternative model can be used for _implicit feedback_ datasets.
    +These datasets only contain implicit feedback from the user
    +in contrast to datasets with explicit feedback like movie ratings.
    +For example users watch videos on a website and the website monitors which user
    +viewed which video, so the users only provide their preference implicitly.
    +In these cases the feedback should not be treated as a
    +rating, but rather an evidence that the user prefers that item.
    +Thus, for implicit feedback datasets there is a slightly different
    +minimalization problem to solve (see [Hu et al.](http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/ICDM.2008.22)
