Hi Divyansh,

Each of these projects have been discussed at length on the mlpack
mailing list. I am on a phone right now so I can't provide good links,
but if you do a search like

 'site:knife.lugatgt.org/pipermail/mlpack collaborative filtering'

or a similarly structured query you should be able to find lots of
additional discussions about each of those three projects you expressed
interest in.
