Human-Computer Interaction

We presents an ontology-based approach to the interface adaptation for people with special needs on the basis of user model and rule-based reasoning mechanism over ontology. The meta-ontology for adapting interfaces for people with disabilities was developed to integrate and manage the domain ontologies (user domain ontology, user disability domain ontology, application interface domain ontology, user's device domain ontology). Set of SWLR-rules was developed for each disease in disease ontology. Reasoning mechanism functioning was introduced by example of interface design for people after ischemic stroke.

Purpose of the research – to improve an efficiency and reduce time of adaptive user interface design by developing the assistive technology based on the ontological user model and interface patterns

Tasks of the research:

  • To analyze the existing models, methods and algorithms of interface adaptation, technologies and tools for adaptive interface design, prototypes of developing system
  • To develop the concept of automated adaptive interface design based on ontological user model and interface patterns
  • To develop the ontological model, algorithms of reasoning over the ontology and set of interface patterns
  • To develop the tool for automated design of adaptive interfaces, to implement and test the developed tool

We have developed the ontology-based approach, set of reasoning rules and software tool (interface editor).
