Human–Computer Interaction Series

Human-Centred Web Adaptation and Personalization

From Theory to Practice

Authors: Germanakos, Panagiotis, Belk, Marios

  • Discusses the value and impact in the design of user interfaces and personalization systems
  • Introduces a comprehensive user model which incorporates individual differences in cognitive processing and emotions
  • Outlines a formalization of an adaptation engine and a human-centred user model aiding the understanding of how visual, cognitive and emotional factors can co-exist under a common representation
  • Provides an open and interoperable adaptation and personalization framework “mapU”, serving as a guide for practically bridging theory and technology
  • Provides a step-by-step guide to designing and developing adaptive and personalized components and interfaces based on distinct human factors

About this book

This book focuses on the importance of adaptation and personalization in today’s society and the upgraded role computational systems and the Internet play in our day-to-day activities. In this era of wireless communication, pervasive computing and the Internet of Things, it is becoming increasingly critical to ensure humans remain central in the developmental process of new technologies to guarantee their continued usefulness and a positive end-user experience.

Organized into three clear parts - theory, principles and practice, a holistic approach to designing and developing adaptive interactive systems and services has been adopted. With an emphasis on distinct human factors, both basic and applied research topics are explored, extending from human-centred user models, driven by user’s individual differences in cognitive processing and emotions, to the creation of smart interfaces that can handle the ever increasing volume and complexity of information to the benefit of the end-user.


Human-Centred Web Adaptation and Personalization – From Theory to Practice is meticulously crafted to serve researchers, practitioners, and students who wish to have an end-to-end understanding of how to convert pure research and scientific results into viable user interfaces, system components and applications. It will serve to bridge the knowledge gap that still remains by suggesting interaction design and implementation guidelines for areas like E-Commerce, E-Learning and Usable Security.

Reviews

“This book covers a very new and interesting topic of improving user interfaces (UIs) by making them friendly to each particular user. The reader can find a lot of information about the history of UIs and the current ways to make them more efficient. There are also hundreds of references, which will provide the reader with details from many fields. … The book is useful for researchers who would like to study many aspects of the field.” (Claudiu Popescu, Computing Reviews, April, 2017)
