Using the matrix factorization technique in machine learning is very common mainly in areas like recommender systems. Despite its high prediction accuracy and its ability to avoid over-fitting of the data, the Bayesian Probabilistic Matrix Factorization algorithm (BPMF) has not been widely used because of the prohibitive cost. In this paper, we propose a comprehensive parallel implementation of the BPMF using Gibbs sampling on shared and distributed architectures. We also propose an insight of a GPU-based implementation of this algorithm.
