Fuzzy adpatation for information acces to digital libraries

Camino Fernández Llamas, Ignacio Aedo, Paloma Díaz, Vicente Matellán Olivera


Different models have been proposed to build systems that adapt to
the user reducing the complexity in the information browsing
process, saving user time and offering personalised interfaces. The
work described in this paper, named \wz, is an example of adaptive
system specially built for accessing digital libraries. A fuzzy
decision mechanism is used to implement the adaptation of both the
user interface and the information searching process. This paper
describes how this system has been designed and implemented,
focusing on its fuzzy-based components. Finally, it also briefly
discusses the advantages of using fuzzy logic to implement
adaptability of the user interface and the searching process.
