This paper explores the idea of clustering partial preference relations as a means for agent prediction of users' preferences. Due to the high number of possible outcomes in a typical scenario, such as an automated negotiation session, elicitation techniques can provide only a sparse specification of a user's preferences. By clustering similar users together, we exploit the notion that people with common preferences over a given set of outcomes will likely have common interests over other… Expand
