EU DIADEM Project Aims to Personalise Web Experience

The DIADEM (Delivering Inclusive Access for Disabled and Elderly Members of the community) Project has just received European funding to develop technology to help elderly people and people with cognitive disabilities use the internet.

One of its main objectives will be to develop software which monitors how a user interacts with web based forms and which then automatically personalises the computer interface accordingly.

It is a joint project between Brunel University, the Norwegian National Computer Centre (Norsk Regnesentral), and several IT suppliers – Bluegarden (Norway) and MORE (Norway) – and government services – CSI-Piemonte (Italy), Sheffield City Council, and Citta di Torino (Italy).

Further information is available from the press release and from the DIADEM Project website.
