We formulate a Data Driven Computing paradigm, termed max-ent Data Driven Computing, that generalizes distance-minimizing Data Driven Computing and is robust with respect to outliers. Robustness is achieved by means of clustering analysis. Specifically, we assign data points a variable relevance depending on distance to the solution and on maximum-entropy estimation. The resulting scheme consists of the minimization of a suitably-defined free energy over phase space subject to compatibility and equilibrium constraints. Distance-minimizing Data Driven schemes are recovered in the limit of zero temperature. We present selected numerical tests that establish the convergence properties of the max-ent Data Driven solvers and solutions.
