  • Abstract Despite recommender systems being useful, for some applications it is hard to accumulate all the required information needed for the recommendation. In today‟s ubiquitous environment, mobile devices with different characteristics are widely available. Our work focuses on the recommendation service built on mobile environment to support tourists‟ traveling need. When tourists visit a new attraction, their recommender systems can exchange data with the attraction system to help obtain rating information of people with similar tastes. Such asynchronous rating exchange mechanisms allow a tourist to receive ratings from other people even though they may not collocate at the same time.
    We proposed four data exchange methods between a user and an attraction system. Our recommendation mechanism incorporates other users‟ opinions to provide recommendations once the user has collected enough ratings. Every method is compared under four conditions which attraction systems carry different amount of existing data. Then we compare these methods under different amount of existing rating data and shed the light on their advantages and disadvantages. Finally, we compare our proposed asynchronous methods with other synchronous data exchange methods proposed previously.
