"Supporting People with Autism Spectrum Disorders in the Exploration of PoIs" is an example of work that takes seriously the task of supporting a small group that is not well served by existing recommender systems.
In this paper, we study the problem of estimating the state of a switched linear system when the observation of the system is subject to communication constraints.
We propose a novel Top-N recommendation model that combines information about an autistic user's idiosyncratic aversions with her/his preferences in a personalized way.
"Worst-Case Topological Entropy and Minimal Data Rate for State Estimation of Switched Linear Systems" gives a method for computing the topological entropy of a broad class of systems called switched linear systems.
