Why is it important?

The paper maybe be a reference for building user interface recommendation systems. It brings a straightforward method for assessing nominal influence of elements building user interface. The simple metrics can also be used as reference for more sophisticated methods.


The paper is a base for further study. It defines the work space and settles basic measures. It makes it ready to run experiments and define recommendation task.
