Universal Access and Privacy: Making AVANTI Legal

Alfred Kobsa,
University of California,
Irvine, USA


When Universal Access to computers becomes realized through user-tailored interface adaptation at the beginning of a user session, numerous data about individual characteristics of the current user are regularily processed. This may however be in conflict with current privacy concerns of computer users, and with national and international privacy laws. This talk will discuss the privacy boundaries that restrict Universal Access, and present possible solution spaces. Examples from the AVANTI system that achieved universal access to a web-based tourist information systems will illustrate the claims.
