Abstract:

Interface software that can adapt to the current user and the current context is a long-term research goal of the Adaptive Interface project at the Naval Research Laboratorys Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory. This report presents a survey of recent research in adaptive interface computer software as well as a discussion of factors that require consideration in designing this software. An adaptive interface needs to include a knowledge base that encompasses four domains. These four domains are knowledge of the current user, knowledge of the interaction scheme, knowledge of the problem task, and knowledge of the underlying system. This report reviews and discusses these knowledge bases along with the positive and negative aspects of adaptive interfaces.
