User Adaptation in Anonymous Web Applications
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of the project in this thesis is to explore the viability of an approach to user adaptation where the application context is significantly more constraining than in most cases seen in previous academic work. The project describes and implements a system for rolling out product features incrementally in an optimal way, based on feature adoption statistics within user segments. In other words, the described system should allow for simple personalization of the product. When analyzing the adoption rate of new features, we find that there are indeed clear differences between the identified user segments. However, limitations due to the lack of stable user identity make adaptation approaches based on these data unfeasable in practice.
