Interaction Analysis for Automated Adaptation

Personalisation is now a component of a large number of computer-based systems. It is also to be expected that its importance will increase significantly in view of the European but also national and country-wide 2020 strategy with regard to demographic change, the trend towards an ageing workforce or the focus on intelligent production processes. The proportion of people with disabilities who can pursue regular employment - often supported by special hardware and software - is also to be increased. This raises the need more than ever to design software systems to meet the needs of the widest possible user base, which without an automated solution means enormous effort.
This research project is primarily concerned with the development of a tool that enables interaction scenarios to be analysed automatically and systematically.
In the next step, the results of these analyses will be transferred into a user model that, on the one hand, suggests input devices and fine-tunes them based on the recorded parameters. On the other hand, this information can also be used to adapt the user interface (software). This automated process can avoid excessive effort for manual adaptation.
People with disabilities are used as a first example domain, as this target group probably has the most diverse needs for an adaptation of their interactions.
