Adaptive Interfaces

Adaptive Interfaces are user interfaces that can adapt their appearance and/or interaction behavior to the requirements of an individual user, the device used, and the context. Unlike adaptive user interfaces, which are modified by a deliberate and conscious choice of a user, adaptive user interfaces initiate and make changes automatically according to available knowledge about the user.


Adaptive Interfaces are widely recognized as a promising means for accessible computing systems. They provide a high degree of personalization without requiring the user to perform complex customization dialogs.

Pros and cons

  • The main advantage of adaptive user interfaces is their ability to adapt to the user's needs. While most user interfaces provide the same experience to all users, adaptive user interfaces change to provide a personalized experience.
  • Another advantage of adaptive user interfaces is security. Since only information that is relevant to the user is displayed, there is less risk of data breaches.
  • Designing Adaptive Interfaces more time-consuming, complicated, and therefore much more expensive than other non-adaptive user interfaces.
  • When designing an adaptive user interface, manufacturers need to know and understand the specific needs of the user. Only then can they create an interface that automatically adapts.
