Learning choice functions from suitable training data comes\r\nwith a number of challenges. For example, the sets provided as input and the\r\nsubsets produced as output can be of any size. Moreover, since the order in\r\nwhich alternatives are presented is irrelevant, a choice function should be\r\nsymmetric. Perhaps most importantly, choice functions are naturally\r\ncontext-dependent, in the sense that the preference in favor of an alternative\r\nmay depend on what other options are available. We formalize the problem of\r\nlearning choice functions and present two general approaches based on two\r\nrepresentations of context-dependent utility functions. Both approaches are\r\ninstantiated by means of appropriate neural network architectures, and their\r\nperformance is demonstrated on suitable benchmark tasks."}],"year":"2019","status":"public","citation":{"bibtex":"@article{Pfannschmidt_Gupta_Hüllermeier_2019, title={Learning Choice Functions: Concepts and Architectures}, journal={arXiv:1901.10860}, author={Pfannschmidt, Karlson and Gupta, Pritha and Hüllermeier, Eyke}, year={2019} }","ieee":"K.
