Modeling the moral user

Peter Asaro
2009 IEEE technology & society magazine  
Author Information Peter Asaro is affl iliated with the Center for Cultural Analysis at Rutgers University, and is a member of the Faculty of the Department of Media Studies and Film, The New School University  ...  Modeling the moral user will involve three elements.  ...  There are two ways to look at this: either as modeling the task environment, or as modeling the user [3] . Thus, I would like to call this approach to ethical design "modeling the moral user."  ...

The um toolkit for cooperative user modelling

Judy Kay
1995 User modeling and user-adapted interaction  
In addition it describes the user-model viewing tools and the way that these have enhanced the user's ability to help a system get their user model right.  ...  The paper also discusses the two central themes of the um work, the application of a tools approach to the design of a user modelling toolkit and the implications of making the user model accessible to  ...  The development of many of the tools would not have been possible without the contributions of Ronny Cook in various aspects of the sam project and the construction of the viewer.  ...

Exploiting user feedback to compensate for the unreliability of user models

Johanna D. Moore, C�cile L. Paris
1992 User modeling and user-adapted interaction  
Recognizing this, researchers devised user models and strategies for exploiting them in order to enable systems to produce the "best" answer for a particular user.  ...  Just as human speakers show an essential, inbuilt responsiveness to their hearers, computer systems must "tailor" their utterances to users.  ...  Johanna Moore is currently supported by grants from the Office of Naval Research Cognitive and Neural Sciences Division, the National Science Foundation, and the National Library of Medicine.  ...

Do We Know What the User Knows, and Does It Matter? The Epistemics of User Modelling [chapter]

Michael Ramscar, Helen Pain, John Lee
1997 User Modeling  
We argue that user knowledge can be modelled, up to a point, but that to ask whether or not we can know what the user knows is to misunderstand the question.  ...  Whilst many user models can function perfectly adequately with a behavioural impression of the user, the provision of assistance in some task domains, notably design, requires a richer understanding, incorporating  ...  The basic problem facing models of users' conceptual knowledge can be best stated as one of relating the conceptual knowledge of a computer user to corresponding knowledge modelled within the computer  ...

KNOME: Modeling What the User Knows in UC [chapter]

David N. Chin
1989 User Models in Dialog Systems  
KNOME is the user modeling component of UC, a natural language consultation system for the UNIX operating system.  ...  During the course of an interactive session with a user, KNOME infers the user's level of expertise from the dialog and maintains a model of the user's knowledge of the UNIX domain.  ...  Dealing with Uncertainty In any user model, the inferences that the model makes about the user contains some degree of uncertainty.  ...

Interactive Assessment of User Preference Models: The Automated Travel Assistant [chapter]

Greg Linden, Steve Hanks, Neal Lesh
1997 User Modeling  
This paper presents the candidate/critique model of interactive problem solving, in which an automated problem solver communicates candidate solutions to the user and the user critiques those solutions  ...  The paper presents the Automated Travel Assistant, an implemented prototype of the model that interactively builds flight itineraries using realtime airline information.  ...  Our implemented CCA, the Automated Travel Assistant, assists the user in finding an optimal or near-optimal trip by presenting the user with carefully selected exemplars that characterize the solution  ...

Preface to the Special Issue on User Modeling in Ubiquitous Computing

Anthony Jameson, Antonio Krüger
2005 User modeling and user-adapted interaction  
The field of user modeling has come up with many techniques for modeling and adapting to computer users, for example, to their preferences, goals, and intentions, as well as to their cognitive and affective  ...  We believe that the field of user modeling can contribute significantly to the enhancement of the effectiveness and usability of ubiquitous computing systems.  ...  This framework merges user models and context models to empower designers of context-aware applications to increase the user-adaptivity of these applications.  ...

Modelling User Tasks with the Unified Modelling Language

Panos Markopoulos
2001 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
This paper discusses the extension of the Unified Modelling Language (UML) for modelling tasks and user groups.  ...  The term task is used widely, to include collaborative and multi-user tasks and without reference to some specific theory of user task knowledge or behaviour.  ...  Re-design of the user activity should be done at the task level, resulting in the envisioned task model.  ...

Using structural descriptions of interfaces to automate the modelling of user cognition

Jon May, Philip J. Barnard, Ann Blandford
1993 User modeling and user-adapted interaction  
One approach to user modelling (Barnard et al., 1988) involves building approximate descriptions of the cognitive activity underlying task performance in human-computer interactions.  ...  Here we show how structural descriptions of interface designs can be used to model user tasks, visual interface objects and screen layouts.  ...  analyses a design, constructing a model of the cognition of a user interacting with the proposed design, and basing its ouput upon that model.  ...
