We will consider two variants of the optimization problem max xT A x, for a matrix A. This problem is at the core of principal component analysis (PCA), most classification methods, and many other approaches in and outside machine learning. In one variant, the domain for x will be the ||.||2-sphere, whereas in the second case it is part of the ||.||1-sphere.
In the remainder of the talk, we will elaborate on the quality of comments on YouTube, portfolio optimization, MAX-CUT, population genetics, Google, movie rental, baseball bats and sociology, the iTunes Genius feature, email spam, and not to forget: automated face detection.
