Using Dialectical Argumentation for User Modelling in Decision Support Systems
Often the aim of a decision support system is to give advice rather than to inform users. This work shows how linguistic theories of dialectical argumentation can provide a user modelling framework able to take account of the user’s current perspectives and values, in addition to prior knowledge and goals.
