Abstract

Leveraging interactive systems by integrating adaptivity is considered as an important key to accommodate user diversity and enhance user interaction. A virtual environment is a highly interactive system which involves users performing complex tasks using diverse 3D interaction techniques. Adaptivity has not been investigated thoroughly in the context of virtual environments. This PhD research is concerned with embedding intelligence to enhance user interaction in virtual environments (i.e. providing adaptive personalized 3D interaction techniques).
