Stoked to learn from my independent study on user modeling.

I've just started my independent study on User Modeling. In this case, User Modeling is comprised of different methods of data collection, synthesis and modeling through machine learning techniques. These models can drive the behavior of an interface and help determine what data it displays and when. After reading an overview of User Modeling in HCI I worked with my Professor to identify areas of interest and set goals.

I will be exploring the intersection of User Modeling, UX Design and flexible visual systems for my thesis.

Thoughts? Let me know @Aetherpoint
