A late comment on this one- I am curious about the discussions regarding "generating Uis from JSON schemas" but couldn't find details looking through mailing lists / wikis, are those taking place as part of the GPII Architecture meetings?

Subject: Article on personalisable interfaces...

Hi, All:

This article from the Paciello group came up in my feed recently:

They specifically mention the GPII, but also discuss the SUPPLE project<>.  There's a video produced by the SUPPLE team<> that demonstrates measuring speed and accuracy of using a pointing device for two users with very different needs, and then shows how the system generates two different interfaces that can be used to input the same data.

Although the SUPPLE project doesn't seem to have much we can directly reuse, we can certainly use their ideas to inform our discussions regarding generating UIs from JSON schemas.  We have previously discussed how breaking down "what can be entered" into declarative form gives us the ability to create one mechanism to edit a range of arbitrary (in our case) settings.

It may already have been obvious to everyone else, but this article reminded me that describing "what needs to be entered" separately from "how it's entered" also gives us the option to generate multiple interfaces tailored to individual user's needs.
