The published book deals with the current topic of personalization. This area now affects not only search engines or various web applications, but also more and more the area of ​​human-machine interaction. When using computers, tablets, cell phones, etc., users also require personalization and customization according to their individual wishes.

So far, there has been no book dealing with exactly this topic called "Personalized Web".
