2017 Radical Research Summit Designing Personalized User Interfaces

There is no such thing as an average user. Users bring their own individual needs, desires, and skills to their everyday use of interactive technologies. Yet many of today’s technologies, from desktop applications to mobile devices and apps, are still designed for some mythical average user.

It seems intuitive that interfaces should be designed with adaptation in mind so that they would better accommodate individual differences among users. Yet, what seems intuitive is not necessarily straightforward to design. In my lightening talk I will highlight several examples of my group’s research in the area of personalized user interfaces and point to where promising future opportunities lie.
