Minority Report (2002)
Here is an instructive case where adaptive thinking was used to create a mobile application for a bike sharing program. Bicycle sharing systems, also known as bike rental, are becoming more and more common in major cities around the world. Bicycle sharing helps reduce traffic congestion and air pollution, and encourages local residents to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
A user who wants to rent a bike can use a mobile application to look for the nearest bike rental station that has bikes available to rent. If the user is unfamiliar with the city, they can use the application to get directions to the rental station; this is the core functionality of the application.
An adaptive system will realize when the user has arrived at the bike rental station and automatically offer additional options, i.e., adapt to the current situation. For example, it may offer the user a quick way to rent a bike, a feature that was not available in the application before arriving at the rental station. During the rental period, the system will anticipate the user’s needs and offer nearby bike rental stations with available parking spots where the bike can be returned, and show the user the current balance for the rental time.
