This paper discusses an approach of modeling users’ task related characteristics in interactive systems. Connectionist models are used to trace the on-going interaction and user-task profiles. These models function as associative memories that can capture the causal relationships among users’ characteristics for the system adaptation. This approach can be used for stereotyping users’ characteristics.
