Fine-grained user models by means of asynchronous web technologies

16th Workshop on Adaptivity and User Modeling in Interactive Systems
Although asynchronous HTTP technologies have grown in importance with the emergence of Web 2.0, most web-based Adaptive Hypermedia Systems (AHS) still exclusively use server- side monitoring of user behaviour to set up the user model. This paper discusses how asynchronous technologies and client-side observation may lead to more accurate and detailed user models, and how that might benefit next- generation AHS.
