The MBAUM framework and its application to the ELFI system show that a combination of usage modelling (realised by applying a novel neuro-fuzzy algorithm) and user modelling, of mentalistic assumptions and behaviouroriented assumptions is possible. Moreover, this combination is beneficial in the sense that it allows for rich user-adaptivity, related to both individualisation of the user interface and personalization of system functionality. This means an important improvement over previous approaches focusing on only one aspect of adaptivity. Further developments include refinement of MBAUM components and implementations in other application systems. Special attention will be paid to forecasting of user action sequences and to adaptive help.
