Towards accountable decision aiding : explanations for the aggregation of preferences

Abstract : We consider providing a decision aiding process with tools aiming at complying to the demands of accountability. Decision makers, seeking support, provide preference information in the form of reference cases, that illustrates their views on the way of taking into account conflicting points of view. The analyst, who provides the support, assumes a generic representation of the reasoning with preferences, and fits the aggregation procedure to the preference information. We assume a robust elicitation process, where the recommendations stemming from the fitted procedure can be deduced from dialectical elements. Therefore, we are interested in solving an inverse problem concerning the model, and in deriving explanations, if possible sound, complete, easy to compute and to understand. We address two distinct forms of reasoning: one aimed at comparing pairs of alternatives with an additive value model, the other aimed at sorting alternatives into ordered categories with a noncompensatory model.
