User/system interaction

As we pointed out before, there is a strong need to present relevant patterns to the user. This can be done by using more specific constraints, background knowledge and/or tailor-made optimization functions. Due to the difficulty of determining these elements beforehand, one of the most promising solutions is that the system and the user co-construct the definition of most relevant patterns, i.e., to have a human in the loop. This requires to have means to present intermediate results to the user, and to get user feedback in order to guide the search space exploration process in the right direction. This is an important research axis for Lacodam, which will be tackled in several complementary ways:
