GREAT PAPER Dynamic Grover Search: Applications in Recommendation systems and Optimization problems


http://arxiv.org/pdf/1505.00895.pdf


Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences).

If you want to be first in the "personalization arena" == Personality Based Recommender Systems, you should understand the ............ Online Dating Industry first of all!  

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2015/04/paper-evaluation-of-similarity-functions.html


WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites
but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!
but no one is scientifically proven!

The only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between prospective mates.)
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
It is all about achieving the eighth decimal!
With 8 decimals, you have more precision than any person could achieve by searching on one's own, but the only way to achieve the eighth decimal is using analysis and correlationwith quantized patterns.
Without offering the NORMATIVE16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.

The Online Dating Industry does not need a 10% improvement, a 50% improvement or a 100% improvement. It does need "100 times better improvement", not 100% better, 100X better The Online Dating Industry needs a very powerful algorithm like the "Teller Ulam design". In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.

Social dating is vaporware. 
Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective/efficient. 
It needs to reduce the false positives problem and big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance. The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
Innovations are not adding more bells and whistles to actual online dating sites.
