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.
