Electronic services are typically developed for large and heterogeneous user groups, and for use from a wide range of different devices (e.g. personal computers, cell phones, and palmtop computers). The ADAPT project (funded by VINNOVA) investigates automatic adaptation of services in open systems (e.g. the World Wide Web) as a means for meeting the challenges that the diverse user group and set of devices pose to service providers. The project treats general aspects of automatic adaptation in open systems to some degree, but put the emphasis on two focused areas: adapting towards preferences of users and adapting towards properties of devices. The project will deliver general requirements on service infrastructures in order to enable adaptive services, and tools that make personal information available to services while allowing users to maintain control over it. It shall also deliver a system that allows easy development of services that automatically adapt to many types of devices.
