A NEW ALGORITHM FOR SELF-ADAPTING WEB INTERFACES

Bogdan Vintila, Dragos Palaghita, Maria Dascalu

Abstract

The paper proposes a new improved algorithm for creating hierarchies of features and options for self-adapting web interfaces against the common one used by many applications. The user interface concept is presented. Types of user interfaces are described. Quality characteristics of the user interfaces are analyzed. Ways of fulfilling these quality characteristics while keeping the costs low are discussed. Advantages and disadvantages of self-adapting and static web interfaces are given. The most common algorithm for creating hierarchies of features and options is described and analyzed. The advantages and disadvantages of the proposed algorithm are discussed. New directions for the development of the self-adapting web interfaces are highlighted.
