Projects Interface Tailor
The Interface Tailor is an agent that attempts to adapt a system in response to affective feedback. Frustration is being used as a fitness function to select between a wide variety of different system behaviors. Currently, the Microsoft Office Assistant (or Paperclip) is one example interface that is being made more adaptive. Ultimately the project seeks to provide a generalized framework for making all software more tailor-able.
