Abstract:In this research, we used an existing system to collect mobile interaction traces and extract meaningful information in terms of interaction data, apps, and layout information and complexity of mobile apps. The preeminent driving force for this research was to come up with a system that is scalable and can be used to extract interactions and layouts from mobile apps, as well as enable us to make claims about the complexity of mobile apps and the flows that they offer. Throughout the course of this research, we collected Android mobile interaction traces and presented a technique which enables extraction of frequent interactive elements from the traces in an unsupervised manner using neural network auto-encoders and k-means clustering. The research work also enables us to find similar layouts across apps and make claims about the location of some of these interactive elements. This research provides a scalable data-driven approach to finding clusters of frequent icons and interactions as well as layouts.
