A Study of Attentional Resources in Digital Tools

With computers becoming increasingly a part of our daily routines, it is important to ask ourselves what we can do to make our interactions with digital tools easier. One idea, which is currently being researched, is that of adaptive interfaces.

Adaptive interfaces allow for digital users to be aided on an individual basis, wherein the computer recognizes the user's patterns of behaviour or preferences, for example. In this way, digial tools user's needs are met case by case, thereby recognizing the fact that every person requires different attention.

In this study, we will be using a series of three simple experiments that are designed to guide the attentional focus of digital tools users. In this way, we hope to find some insight onto whether users respond better as "active" or "passive" users.
