Learning Interaction Models in a Digital Library Service

We present the exploitation of an improved version of the Learning Server for modeling the user interaction in a digital library service architecture. This module is the basic component for providing the service with an added value such as an essential extensible form of interface adaptivity. Indeed, the system is equipped with a web-based visual environment, primarily intended to improve the user interaction by automating the assignment of a suitable interface depending on data relative to the previous experience with the system, coded in log files. The experiments performed show that accurate interaction models can be inferred automatically by using up-to-date learning algorithms.
