Modelling with Problem Frames: Explanations and Context in Ambient Intelligent Systems

Anders Kofod-Petersen, Jörg Cassens


When designing and implementing real world ambient intelligent systems we are in need of applicable information systems engineering methods. The tools we find in the intelligent systems area focus on the knowledge engineering parts, whereas traditional software engineering techniques are usually not designed with the peculiarities of intelligent systems design in mind. This holds in particular for explanation-aware intelligent systems. This work looks at problem frames for explanations and investigates how problem frames can be used to elicit, analyse, and specify these specific requirements. The point of departure is an existing ambient intelligent information system for the hospital ward domain. The work presented here analyses how such a system can be redesigned with a focus on explanation-awareness.
