Values@Runtime: An Adaptive Framework for Operationalising Values

Bennaceur, Amel; Hassett, Diane; Nuseibeh, Bashar and Zisman, Andrea (2023). Values@Runtime: An Adaptive Framework for Operationalising Values. In: IEEE/ACM 45th International Conference on Software Engineering: Software Engineering in Society (ICSE-SEIS), 14-20 May 2023, Melbourne, Australia.



We present an adaptive framework to assist users in making more value-sensitive decisions during their (runtime) use of software. The framework enables users to (i) represent, instantiate, and monitor their values and behaviour; (ii) understand mismatches between stated values and their observed behaviour; and (iii) recommend ways to align users' values and behaviour. We built a 'values shopping basket' tool to illustrate and demonstrate the adaptive framework in the food consumption domain, a sector that is rich in values and regularly undergoes reflection and debate.
