Nowadays more and more information becomes available in digital form. To be able to guide users through this wealth of information, a possibility is to only provide the user with relevant information, where relevancy is determined by the preferences of the user. To determine the precise relation between relevancy and preferences, we somehow need to formalize both concepts. This paper proposes a way to formalize the preferences of a user by grounding them in possible histories of the user. We explore this technique and its relations to other possible models.
