We describe the overall theory of the SOILIE model of the human imagination. In this description, we outline cognitive capacities for learning and storage, image component selection and placement, as well as analogical reasoning. The guiding theory behind SOILIE is that visual imagination is constrained by regularities in visual memories.
SGOMS is a way of scaling up GOMS models to model multi agent work in complex sociotechnical systems. In particular, it allows GOMS to handle interruptions, multi-tasking, and re-planning. West and Pronovost (2009) discussed some of the theoretical issues around building an SGOMS model in ACT-R. This paper presents work in progress for two such models.(More)
A presentation of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) called Visuo that stores and guesses quantitative visual-spatial magnitudes (e.g., sizes of objects). In this analysis, Visuo is used to store polar (angle and distance) relationships between objects in images. It uses a database of tagged images as its memory and approximates unexperienced magnitudes by(More)
