Probabilistic Evaluation of Preference Aggregation Functions: A Statistical Approach in Social Choice Theory
TLDR
A statistical criterion for evaluating the appropriateness of preference aggregation functions for a fixed group of persons by relying on probabilistic information on the homogeneity structure of the group members’ preferences is introduced.
Predicting User Preferences Via Similarity-Based Clustering
TLDR
This paper explores the idea of clustering partial preference relations as a means for agent prediction of users' preferences by exploiting the notion that people with common preferences over a given set of outcomes will likely have common interests over other outcomes.
A study of similarity measures through the paradigm of measurement theory: the classic case
TLDR
The paper aims at providing information on similarity measures that can help in choosing “a priori” one of them on the basis of the semantics behind this choice, from the point of view of the ranking relation they induce on object pairs.
du CNRC ( NPArC ) Predicting User Preferences via Similarity-Based Clustering
TLDR
This paper explores the idea of clustering partial preference relations as a means for agent prediction of users’ preferences by clustering similar users together, exploiting the notion that people with common preferences over a given set of outcomes will likely have common interests over other outcomes.
Distance based preference relations
TLDR
A similarity measure is proposed on distance-based preferences, which is important in preference elicitation and revision of preference and in the applications of distance based preference relation are prospected.
Learning User Preference Models under Uncertainty for Personalized Recommendation
TLDR
A novel knowledge representation method for item and user preference is proposed that accounts for uncertainty due to the subjectivity, vagueness and imprecision using concepts from the fuzzy set and logic theory and outperformed the state of the art approaches in terms of precision, recall, and F1-measure.
Pairwise Preference Learning and Ranking
TLDR
The main objective of this work is to investigate the trade-off between the quality of the induced ranking function and the computational complexity of the algorithm, both depending on the amount of preference information given for each example.
User preferences discovery using fuzzy models
Label ranking by learning pairwise preferences
Knowledge-based acquisition of tradeoff preferences for negotiating agents
TLDR
It is identified that user trade-off preferences play a fundamental role in negotiation in general and another method is developed to remove the limitation of the high user workload of the exhaustive method.

Preference Elicitation via Theory Refinement
We present an approach to elicitation of user preference models in which assumptions can be used to guide but not constrain the elicitation process. We demonstrate that when domain knowledge is
The Decision-Theoretic Interactive Video Advisor
TLDR
DIVA is described, a decision-theoretic agent for recommending movies that contains a number of novel features and has a rich representation of preference, distinguishing between a user's general taste in movies and his immediate interests.
Utility Elicitation as a Classification Problem
TLDR
This work attempts to identify the new user's utility function based on classification relative to a database of previously collected utility functions by identifying clusters of utility functions that minimize an appropriate distance measure.
Empirical Analysis of Predictive Algorithms for Collaborative Filtering
TLDR
Several algorithms designed for collaborative filtering or recommender systems are described, including techniques based on correlation coefficients, vector-based similarity calculations, and statistical Bayesian methods, to compare the predictive accuracy of the various methods in a set of representative problem domains.
A Hybrid Approach to Reasoning with Partially Elicited Preference Models
TLDR
This work shows how comparative statements about classes of decision alternatives can be used to further constrain the utility function and thus identify supoptimal alternatives, and demonstrates that quantitative and qualitative approaches can be synergistically integrated to provide effective and flexible decision support.

Analysis of decision making under risk has been dominated by expected utility theory, which generally accounts for people's actions. Presents a critique of expected utility theory as a descriptive

Metric Methods for Analyzing Partially Ranked Data
TLDR
