Abstract / Description of output

In this paper, we present a new approach to support the decision of selecting one object out of a set of alternatives. As compared to previous approaches, the distinctive feature of our approach is that neither the user, nor the system need
to build a model of user’s preferences. Our proposal is to integrate a system for interactive data exploration and analysis with a multimedia explanation facility. The explanation facility supports the user in understanding unexpected aspects of the data. The explanation generation process is guided by a causal model of the domain that is automatically acquired by the system.
