A fundamental objective of human–computer interaction research is to make systems more usable, more useful, and to provide users with experiences fitting their specific background knowledge and objectives. [...] Key Result Finally, an assessment of the current state of the art followed by some future challenges is given.Expand
Improving Control in an Agent for User Modeling
I. INTRODUCTION esearch in the area of Human-Computer Interaction is trying to meet the challenge of making user interfaces more usable. However, user interface researchers have put little emphasisExpand
Knowledge Engineering in the Context of Human-Computer Interaction
This thesis contributes to both Knowledge Engineering and HumanComputer Interaction research with important results in regards to three main directions: (1) Knowledge Based Systems, (2) KnowledgeExpand
From Usability Testing and Text Analysis to User-Response Criticism
TLDR
This article tries to bridge the fields of HCI and Digital Humanities, where HCI techniques are used to evaluate tools developed in DH projects and the results of this evaluation are analysed via DH methods. Expand
A cognitive model of user interaction as a guideline for designing novel interfaces
TLDR
This paper presents a methodology for designing user models for MRE as well as for the augmentation of physical everyday objects for adaptive systems behavior based on user models. Expand
Opportunities for User Involvement within Interface Personalization
Personalization provides users with the opportunity to work in feature-reduced interfaces that uniquely suit their needs. While adding system intelligence to the process has the potential to makeExpand
Supporting Feature Awareness and Improving Performance with Personalized Graphical User Interfaces
TLDR
Both adaptive (system-controlled) and adaptable personalization techniques are investigated to help understand the generalizability of the awareness concept, and how specific contextual and design characteristics impact the user’s experience with adaptive interfaces are studied. Expand
Portal Help: Helping People Help Themselves Through Animated Demos
TLDR
When the above was written in 1985, the majority of people had little or no contact with computing machinery and personal computers are a pervasive aspect of the authors' society and have grown exponentially in number, power, and complexity. Expand
Supporting Novice to Expert Transitions in User Interfaces
TLDR
This article summarizes and organizes research relevant to supporting users in making successful transitions to expert levels of performance, based around four domains of performance improvement: intramodal improvement that occurs as a factor of repetition and practice with a single method of interaction, intermodal improvement, vocabulary extension, and task mapping. Expand
User profiling on the basis of interactions with a computer game
TLDR
This dissertation examines the potential for determining an individual’s personality through analysis of their interactions with commercial computer games as well as their performance in game elements using an underlying general intelligence factor, and their emotional state from visual and physiological cues. Expand
LASHANDA ELAINE . Assessing Interactive System Effectiveness with Usability Design Heuristics and Markov Models of User Behavior
The purpose of this research was to create a new measure of usability to aid researchers in determining whether the intent of system designers is realized and to objectively assess user behavior as aExpand

User Modeling and User Interfaces: A Case for Domain Models, Task Models, and Tailorability
My thesis is that the case for user models has little empirical support, necessarily must confront currently intractable problems, and is motivated by aspects of a metaphor that does not provide, atExpand
User Modeling and User Interfaces
TLDR
The purpose of the panel is to bring together these disparate opinions in an open forum and rely on the fact that users, as humans, are smart enough to be able to use interfaces as intended to satisfy their needs. Expand

A user modelling approach for computer-based critiquing
TLDR
A framework for a user modelling component that can be used for a more general class of cooperative knowledge-based systems and using the structure of the conceptual domain model as the basis for the indirect implicit inference techniques is unique. Expand
Embedding critics in design environments
TLDR
It is argued that computer-based critiquing systems are most effective when they are embedded in domain-oriented design environments, which are knowledge-based computer systems that support designers in specifying a problem and constructing a solution. Expand
Triggers and barriers to customizing software
TLDR
The process by which users decide to customize is described and the factors that irdluence when and how users make those decisions have implications for both the design of software and the integration of new software into an organization. Expand

TLDR
GUMAC is described, a General User Model Acquisition Component that uses heuristic rules to make default inferences about users' beliefs from their interaction with an advisory expert system, based on features of human action and conversation that constrain people's behavior and establish expectations about their knowledge.

TLDR
The normative perspective of the paper is that adaptive techniques in the context of Universal Access have the potential to facilitate both accessibility and high quality interaction, for the broadest possible end-user population. Expand
