AbstractIn this paper, we demonstrate how a preference elicitation technique can be applied in the domain of user privacy. A structure known as a Conditional Outcome Preference Network (COP-network) is used to model preferences and estimate utilities for various private data collection practices. These utilities can then be used by an autonomous software agent to advise an Internet user on whether or not to interact with a website, or even to facilitate or conduct negotiations of a mutually acceptable privacy policy. Experiments show that preferences and utilities are estimated significantly better than by a previously used technique.
