Ontological Interaction Modeling and Semantic Rule-based Reasoning for User Interface Adaptation

Abstract

The paper aims to show how reasoning on ontology can be helpful for user interface adaptation. From a set of user characteristics and interface parameters, it is possible to deduct the most suitable and adaptable interfaces for him/her. To do so, Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL) rules are used to derive the appropriate interface for a specific user, considering different factors related to his/her abilities, preferences, skills, etc. A use case, in handicrafts domain, is presented; different input and output interaction modalities (writing, selection, text, speech, etc) are proposed to a handcraft woman according to her sensory perception and motor skills. The modalities are structured within what we called "interaction ontology".
