Subject Re: Spark Matrix Factorization

Hi Deb,

Thanks so much for your response! At this point, we haven't determined
which of DSGD/ALS to go with and were waiting on guidance like yours to
tell us what the right option would be. It looks like ALS seems to be good
enough for our purposes.

Regards.
