When Policies Are Better Than Plans: Decision-Theoretic Planning of Recommendation Sequences

By Thorsten Bohnenberger and Anthony Jameson (2001)

In J. Lester (Ed.), IUI 2001: International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (pp. 21–24). New York: ACM.

Abstract

An intelligent user interface sometimes needs to present a sequence of related recommendations to a user, in spite of being uncertain in advance as to whether (and with what success) the user will follow each recommendation. There are potential advantages to the use of decision-theoretic planning methods which yield an optimal policy for the situation-dependent presentation of recommendations. This approach is discussed with reference to an example involving route instructions given by an airport assistance system.
