Self-adaptive interfaces can be considered at different levels: adaptation to the user's habits and experience, adaptation to the user's task, adaptation to the user's knowledge. In this paper, we explain what we mean by adapting to the user's experience and task, how we detect the need of such adaptations and how we realize them, and why we have been led to consider automatic generation of interfaces. We expose then what we aim to do about adaptation to the user's knowledge.
