Preference handling-an introductory tutorial Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract We present a tutorial introduction to the area of preference handling-one of the core issues in the design of any system that automates or supports decision making. The main goal of this tutorial is to provide a framework, or perspective, within which current work on preference handling-representation, reasoning, and elicitation-can be understood. Our intention is not to provide a technical description of the diverse methods used, but rather, to provide a general perspective on the problem and its varied solutions and to highlight central ideas and techniques.
