Description: The goal of DIADEM is to provide an adaptable web browser interface, to enable people who suffer a reduction of cognitive skills, to remain active and independent members of society. This will be achieved by developing an Expert System (ES) that, monitors the user, adapting and personalising the computer interface to enable people to interact with web based forms. This system will be located on the user's PC and will ensure that the many services available over the Internet are open and accessible to as many people as possible, whilst providing privacy and security. The technology will also be extended into the work place enabling people to be in more control of their working environment and their working life. The goal of DIADEM is to provide a plug-in to a web browser that monitors the ability of the user to interact with the system and dynamically offers personalisation of the interface to optimise assistance to that specific user. All the service provider needs to do is use the Web Services standard and provide some fixed meta-level data about the dialogue structure.
