Abstract

The personalized adaptive navigation system addresses the problem of acceleration of navigation and input. The software system on the device can adapt to the user without specific intervention by saving information about the user’s patterns when interacting with various applications. This invention is meant to span ideas that involve extensive intersections of personal information and adapts it across boundaries in a way that hides the presence of distinct applications. One manifestation of this would be within a pop up quick action system. The system would take the form of a dialog that could pop up when the user typed or when a particular key/key sequence was pressed. This window would interpret what the user typed and apply a variety of methods to accomplish what the user wishes to do. Another manifestation of this item would be to track the user’s navigation input or text input. If the user backtracks (deletes or goes back out of a menu), this can be interpreted to indicate a common error. In the case of a typographic correction, the device prompts the user to add the correction to the autotext database, after some number of corrections. Frequently typed words, even if not corrected, could be added to an autocomplete (predictive input) database. In this way, the system adapts to the user. A major benefit of this system is its ability to retain the position of the document where the user scrolled, or links followed by the user within the browser. Post processing of text fields in order to extract items that look like web pages or phone numbers is commonly performed based on the syntax of the data. User data could also be used, and the first obvious candidate would be to merge address book data, so that when a message says “can you call Walter?” the word “Walter” is found in the address book and underlined so that it can easily be clicked on as a link. Items that look like names could be represented as a link with an option to search a directory for the name.

The personalized adaptive navigation system addresses the problem of acceleration of navigation and input. The software system on the device can adapt to the user without specific intervention by saving information about the user's patterns when interacting with various applications.

This invention is meant to span ideas that involve extensive intersections of personal information and adapts it across boundaries in a way that hides the presence of distinct applications.
