A Rescorer simply assigns a new "score" to a thing like an ID of an item or user which a Recommender is considering returning as a top recommendation. It may be used to arbitrarily re-rank the results according to application-specific logic before returning recommendations. For example, an application may want to boost the score of items in a certain category just for one request.

A Rescorer can also exclude a thing from consideration entirely by returning true from isFiltered(java.lang.Object).
