The User Model, Vocabulary and Logical Architecture for Adaptive Augmented Reality

Maritzol Tenemaza, Angélica de Antonio, Jaime Ramírez
2007 Proceedings of the Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction - CLIHC '15  
As a first step to this goal, our aim is to propose a detailed definition of the content of the User Model required for this type of systems.  ...  We explored state of the art ontologies for user modelling, and propose a set of significant user characteristics to be mod-elled.  ...  An adaptive application based on user knowledge has to be able to recognize changes in the state of the user's knowledge, and thus update the user model.  ...

Flexible guidance generation using user model in spoken dialogue systems

Kazunori Komatani, Shinichi Ueno, Tatsuya Kawahara, Hiroshi G. Okuno
2003 Proceedings of the 41st Annual Meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics - ACL '03  
Experimental evaluation shows that the cooperative responses adaptive to individual users serve as good guidance for novice users without increasing the dialogue duration for skilled users.  ...  Specifically, we set up three dimensions of user models: skill level to the system, knowledge level on the target domain and the degree of hastiness.  ...  The proposed user models also suppress the redundancy by changing the dialogue procedure and selecting contents of responses.  ...
