Seeking Answers, Making Sense, Changing Lifestyles: Scientific and Engineering Models for Human-Information Interaction
Conferences & Talks

spatial@ucsb.local2015: Poster and Plenary Session

2 June 2015
UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, California



In this presentation, Pirolli will discuss a series of increasingly complex human-information problems that have been addressed over the years by increasingly complex models of human psychology and behavior. The problems and contexts include information foraging, intelligence analysis, learning technical domains, and mastering changes in one’s own lifestyle. The models have been used to come to a deeper understanding of the cognitive ecology of human-information interaction in these contexts, to develop new user modeling techniques, with the aim of supporting the development of new human-information interaction techniques.
