Right, this goes all the way to "making recommendations", back to Ak.
I think Lance was asking about how to find the new row in latent
feature space, a row in Uk.
You can't ignore Sk, yes, just trying to get to the essence. Putting
it back in (halfandhalf) does get what I posted which indeed is the
project I think that was in question..
Uk * sqrt(Sk) = Ak * Vk * 1/sqrt(Sk)
