SUN, X, MAY, A. and WANG, Q., 2016. The impact of user- and system-initiated personalization on the user experience at large sports events. Applied Ergonomics, 54, pp.1-9.
This article describes an experimental study investigating the impact on user experience of two approaches of personalization of content provided on a mobile device, for spectators at large sports events. A lab-based experiment showed that a system-driven approach to personalization was generally preferable, but that there were advantages to retaining some user control over the process. Usability implications for a hybrid approach, and design implications are discussed, with general support for countermeasures designed to overcome recognised limitations of adaptive systems.
