Generating Explanations using an Automated Planner and Modelling Reasoning Processes, Skills and Knowledge

Alan Wheeldon, Jim Reye

In this paper, we describe a user focused approach to generating goal oriented explanations that motivate the user to achieve their task. The planner is combined with the knowledge base in a way that distinguishes between the user’s and tutor’s reasoning processes, skills and knowledge and that reflects the way humans’ reason in the context of explanatory dialogue. Personalised information is provided to the user to match their needs for motivation to complete a task, and information that enables them to complete a task.
