Article
As interactive computing devices become increasingly mobile, the user , s time limitations and situational distractions are becoming important determinants of the quality of interaction with these devices. Automatic adaptation to such situational constraints is a challenging goal for user modeling research. This paper first briefly summarizes resea...

Im vorliegenden Anwendungsbeitrag berichten wir über eine Projektkooperation zwischen der Daimler-Benz Forschung, Berlin und der DFKI GmbH. Ziel dieser Kooperation war die Entwicklung eines Ansatzes zur Online-Erstellung individueller Kundenprofile auf elektronischen Marktpl?tzen, um den potentiellen Kunden bei der Suche und Auswahl von Produkten z...
Article
A number of methods have been proposed for reasoning about the demands that particular tasks place on a user , s limited cognitive processing resources. On the other hand, the notion of "cognitive resources" has been strongly criticized by psychologists. This paper addresses the question of whether these criticisms are applicable to user modeling....
Article
Two experiments assessed the membership functions that German speakers assign to 12 adverb phrases and 17 modal verb forms that express probability assessments. These expressions fall largely into three rather homogeneous classes. The membership functions are used as part of the semantic knowledge base of the natural language dialog system PRACMA,...
Article
The 65 papers presented at the Second Con-ference of the German Cognitive Science Society (Hamburg, March 1996) are discussed with respect to the extent and the nature of their interdisciplinarity. First, statistical overviews are presented that reveal sev-eral global patterns. Second, the individual papers are reviewed briefly by topic area, with...

... Such an approach can be modeled in the framework of multi-attribute utility theory (e.g. see [27]), and has already been used for the identification of customer profiles in an electronic bourse for used cars [15]. In this project, the car database was provided from a large German/American car producer and retailer, whereas the value dimensions for the product "car" have been adopted from a study of the German car market [23] that suggests that safety, economy, comfort, sportiness, prestige, family and environmental friendliness are the most relevant. ...
... Additivity means that P rw(ϕ ∪ ψ) = P rw(ϕ) + P rw(ψ) for any two disjoint ϕ, ψ ∈ P(Ew). 5 But see(Kipper and Jameson, 1994) for an interesting exception.6 The actual explanations are clearly more sophisticated than this. ...
... Litman and Pan [4] claim that the performance of a conversational system can be improved by adapting dialog behavior to individual users. Jameson [3] discusses the cognitive aspects of conversational applications taking into consideration the user's available time and her ability to concentrate on the interaction. Dialog call-flow adaptation of a conversational system for improving the speech recognition accuracy has been addressed in [5]. ...
... And a dialog system that tries to model a user , s working memory on-line will typically have access to less extensive specific data about the user than psychologists have about experimental subjects (cf. Jameson, 1997). Viewed in this light, it is not remarkable that READY has so far gotten by with a way of modeling working memory-as a homogeneous store with a limited capacity-that is crude in comparison with the models developed in basic working memory research. ...
