 Abstract—Latent factor (LF) models have proven to be accurate and efficient in extracting hidden knowledge from high-dimensional and sparse (HiDS) matrices. However, most LF models fail to fulfill the non-negativity constraints that reflect the non-negative nature of industrial data. Yet existing non-negative LF models for HiDS matrices suffer from slow convergence leading to considerable time cost. An alternating direction method-based non-negative latent factor (ANLF) model decomposes a non-negative optimization process into small sub-tasks. It updates each LF non-negatively based on the latest state of those trained before, thereby achieving fast convergence and maintaining high prediction accuracy and scalability.

They first map entities corresponding to the columns and rows of this target matrix into the same low-dimensional LF space. Then a series of loss functions are built based on its known entry set and the desired LFs [3-5, 8-13]. Since its known data take only a tiny piece of its whole entry set, to focus on them rather than on the entire matrix leads to high
