   Abstract

Preferences are a key component in any application that makes or supports decision-making. In particular, many current applications that cater to the massive amounts of users on the internet attempt to exhibit some form of personalization or awareness of user preferences. In this talk I will discuss a family of graphical preferences models based on CP-nets, and explain how they are used to model and reason with preferences. I will end by discussing a few applications of these methods in e-commerce, planning for data products, and adaptive multi-media presentations.
