Abstract

Computer systems are increasingly involved in making decisions. Therefore, it is increasingly important that they understand our values. To make values usable, context is important, both of the individual and the actions they underlie. This work aims to study if it is possible to make it easier to elicit an individual’s values by using the context of the action. Practically, we first held an expert survey (n = 7) to see if some values are more likely to underlie some actions than others. The results were positive on this score, so a second study (user, (n = 135)) was done showing that restricting the number of values made it easier to elicit values from users while not unnecessarily limiting their expression. This work shows that when linking actions to values, it is possible to make the elicitation easier by only showing the applicable options. This is an important step in being able to incorporate values in computerized decision making.
