Who's asking for help?

Bowen Hui, Craig Boutilier
2006 Proceedings of the 11th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '06  
Following recent probabilistic techniques in user modeling, we model our user with a dynamic Bayesian network (DBN) and propose to explicitly infer the "user's type" -a composite of personality and affect  ...  We design the system to reason about the impact of its actions given the user's current attitudes. To illustrate the benefits of this approach, we describe a DBN model for a text-editing help task.  ...  Left: a user who welcomes help so the system offers them regularly. Middle: a sporadic user so help is sparse. Right: a user who rejects help so the system learns to back off.  ...
