Interface agents: caveat mercator in electronic commerce

Daniel G. Conway, Gary J. Koehler
2000 Decision Support Systems  
In this paper, we push this observation by examining and using a new type of software agent to convert merchant interfaces into middleware thus enabling one to assess and Ž . optimize their interactions  ...  Electronic commerce has opened new opportunities for buyers and sellers. Consumers can do things in an on-line environment that are simply not possible in face-to-face transactions.  ...  As a result, many consumers have concerns about vendor viability, trust-worthiness of the companies and quality of products or services. Most already worry about secure transactions.  ...

Interactive Intent Modeling for Exploratory Search

Tuukka Ruotsalo, Jaakko Peltonen, Manuel J. A. Eugster, Dorota Głowacka, Patrik Floréen, Petri Myllymäki, Giulio Jacucci, Samuel Kaski
2018 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
We introduce interactive intent modeling, a technique that models a user's evolving search intents and visualizes them as keywords for interaction.  ...  This implies that the user has to know what to search for, as existing approaches do not support becoming aware of information needs that arise during exploration.  ...  We thank all researchers participating in HWFA, Multivire, D2I, and Re: Know for their help and assistance.  ...

The KM-MCDM interface in decision design: tradeoffs-free conflict dissolution

Milan Zeleny
2008 International Journal of Applied Decision Sciences  
Because tradeoffs are properties of alternatives (the measured) and not of criteria (the measures), designing an optimal decision involves designing a tradeoffs-free alternative (or its proxy).  ...  Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Zeleny, M. (2008) 'The KM-MCDM interface in decision design: tradeoffs-free conflict dissolution', Int.  ...  As such, its support requires a number of pattern-searching iterations, interactively homing on the most desirable pattern: a stable pattern, an ideal solution, a tradeoffs-free alternative or a compromise  ...
