Schiaffino, Silvia, Armentano, Marcelo and Amandi, Analia (2010): Building respectful interface agents. In International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 68 (4) pp. 209-222.

To provide personalized assistance to users, interface agents have to learn not only a user's preferences and interests with respect to a software application, but also when and how the user prefers to be assisted. Interface agents have to detect the user's intention to determine when to assist the user, and the user's interaction and interruption preferences to provide the right type of assistance without hindering the user's work. In this work we describe a user profiling approach that considers these issues within a user profile and a decision making approach that enables the agent to choose the best type of assistance for a given user in a given situation. We also describe the results obtained when evaluating our proposal in the tourism domain, and we compare these results with some previous ones in the calendar management domain.

Nowadays it is essential to obtain personalization in e-learning, to provide help to students' activities in this environment. There are two main research directions that aim at providing personalization in e-learning: adaptive educational systems and intelligent tutors (agents). This paper presents the adaptability approach designed for the AdaptWeb system and the eTeacher agent, describing design and implementation issues, and discussing results obtained from students' evaluation in these real applications. Then, this paper presents a comparison about them.

Schiaffino, Silvia and Amandi, Analia (2004): User-interface agent interaction: personalization issues. In International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 60 (1) pp. 129-148.

Interface agents are computer programs that provide personalized assistance to users with their computer-based tasks. Most interface agents achieve personalization by learning a user's preferences in a given application domain and assisting him according to them. In this work we adopt a different approach to personalization: how to personalize the interaction between interface agents and users in a mixed-initiative interaction context. We have empirically studied a set of interaction issues that agents have to take into account to achieve this goal and we present our results in this article. Some of these personalization issues are: discovering the type of assistant a user wants, learning when (and if) to interrupt the user, discovering how the user wants to be assisted in different contexts. As a result of our experiments, we have defined the components of a user interaction profile that models a user's interaction and assistance preferences. This profile will enable interface agents to enhance and personalize their interaction with users by discovering how to provide each user assistance of the right sort at the right time.
