Abstract

This paper presents a software environment providing human-aware ambient support for a human performing a task that demands substantial amounts of attention. The agent obtains human attention-awareness in an adaptive manner by use of a dynamical model of human attention, gaze sensoring by an eye-tracker, and information about features of the objects in the environment which is parameterised for characteristics of the human specified above. The agent uses a built-in adaptation model to adapt on the fly, the values of these parameters to the personal characteristics of the human. The software agent has been implemented in a component-based manner within the Adobe
