  title={Knowing What to Explain and When},
  author={J. Cassens},

}
This work focuses on the socio-technical aspects of artificial intelligence, namely how (specific types of) intelligent systems function in human workplace environments. The goal is first to get a better understanding of human needs and expectations when it comes to interaction with intelligent systems, and then to make use of the understanding gained in the process of designing and implementing such systems.The work presented focusses on a specific problem in developing intelligent systems… Expand

Designing Explanation Aware Systems: The Quest for Explanation Patterns
TLDR
By putting social theories to work in the field of artificial intelligence, this work shows that results from other fields can be beneficial in understanding what explanatory capabilities are needed for a given intelligent system, and to ascertain in which situations an explanation should be delivered. Expand
Using Activity Theory to Model Context Awareness
TLDR
This work proposes the use of Activity Theory to first model context and further on populate the model for assessing situations in a pervasive computing environment, utilised in the ambient intelligent system. Expand
Goals and Kinds of Explanations in Case-Based Reasoning
TLDR
A prelimenary outline of the combination of two recently proposed classifications of explanations based on the type of the explanation itself and user goals which should be fulfilled is presented. Expand
Explanations and Context in Ambient Intelligent Systems
TLDR
This work demonstrates how explanations can be combined with context to deal with the different types of explanations that are required for a meaningful interaction of a system and its users. Expand
Symbolic Explanation of Similarities in Case-based Reasoning
TLDR
This paper presents an explanation scheme using anti-unification for CBR systems applied to classification tasks that focuses on symbolically describing what is shared between the current problem and the retrieved cases that belong to dierent classes. Expand
Mapping Goals and Kinds of Explanations to the Knowledge Containers of Case-Based Reasoning Systems
TLDR
A prelimenary outline of the combination of two recently proposed classifications of explanations based on the type of the explanation itself and user goals which should be fulfilled is presented. Expand
A Case-Based Explanation System for Black-Box Systems
TLDR
This paper presents a Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) solution to providing supporting explanations of black-box systems that uses local information to assess the importance of each feature and takes advantage of the derived feature importance information to help select cases that are a better reflection of the black- box solution and thus more convincing explanations. Expand
Gaining insight through case-based explanation
TLDR
A knowledge-light approach to case-based explanations that works by selecting cases based on explanation utility and offering insights into the effects of feature-value differences is examined. Expand
Explanation Awareness and Ambient Intelligence as Social Technologies
This work focuses on the socio-technical aspects of artificial intelligence, namely how (specific types of) intelligent systems function in human workplace environments. The goal is first to get a ...
Using Symbolic Similarity to Explain Case-based Reasoning in Classification Tasks
TLDR
This work uses the notion of anti-unification (least general generalization) to build symbolic similarity descriptions for CBR in classification tasks that focuses on explaining what is shared between the current problem and the retrieved cases that belong to different classes. Expand

Knowledge acquisition and learning by experience—the role of case-specific knowledge
TLDR
This chapter presents a framework for integrating KA and ML methods within a total knowledge modeling cycle, favoring an iterative rather than a top down approach to system development. Expand
A knowledge-intensive, integrated approach to problem solving and sustained learning
TLDR
A unified framework is developed through an analysis of various types, aspects and roles of knowledge relevant for the kind of systems described above, which aims to provide an environment for discussion of different approaches to knowledge intensive problem solving and learning. Expand
User Modeling via Stereotypes
  • E. Rich
  • Computer Science
  • Cogn. Sci.
  • 1979
TLDR
The problems that must be considered if computers are going to treat their users as individuals with distinct personalities, goals, and so forth are addressed, and stereotypes are proposed as a useful mechanism for building models of individual users on the basis of a small amount of information about them. Expand
An Evaluation of the Usefulness of Case-Based Explanation
TLDR
A CBR system for predicting blood-alcohol level is developed and explained and the case-based explanations fare very well in this evaluation and score significantly better than the rule-based alternative. Expand
Physical and Virtual Tools: Activity Theory Applied to the Design of Groupware
TLDR
This paper shows how the understanding of activity theory has shaped the design philosophy for groupware and how it has applied to the design practice of the BUILD-IT system, an Augmented Reality systemveloped to enhance group work. Expand
Potential Uses of Case-Based Reasoning in Experience Based Construction of Software Systems and Business Process Support
An increasing number of activities and publications underlines that the fields of Software and Knowledge Engineering overlap more and more (e.g., Verlage & Rombach, 1995; Bergmann & Eisenecker, 1995;Expand
Goal-Based Explanation Evaluation
TLDR
It is argued that understanding what determines explanations' goodness requires a dynamic theory of evaluation, based on analysis of the information needed to satisfy the many goals that can prompt explanation. Expand
Explanation-Driven Case-Based Reasoning
  • A. Aamodt

  • 1993
TLDR
A generic reasoning method that utilises a presumably extensive and dense model of general domain knowledge as explanatory support for case-based problem solving and learning is described. Expand
Adaptation as a Problem of Design
TLDR
This chapter describes a taxonomy which classifies different types of adaptive system, and has implications for the architecture of adaptive systems, and a suitable architecture is discussed. Expand
