Modeling Exploratory Behaviour
- 686 Downloads
In this paper we propose a user model that aims to assess the user’s exploratory behaviour in an open environment. The model is based on a Bayesian Network and consists of several components that allow diagnosis of the causes of poor exploratory behaviour. Among these components are the user’s knowledge of exploration strategies, the user’s motivation level, personality traits and emotional states.
