A Cognitive Science perspective for learning how to design meaningful user experiences and human-centered technology

  title={A Cognitive Science perspective for learning how to design meaningful user experiences and human-centered technology},
  author={Sarah Kingsley},
UPDATED—June 2, 2021. This paper reviews literature in cognitive science, human-computer interaction (HCI) and natural-language processing (NLP) to consider how analogical reasoning (AR) could help inform the design of communication and learning technologies, as well as online communities and digital platforms. First, analogical reasoning (AR) is defined, and use-cases of AR in the computing sciences are presented. The concept of schema is introduced, along with use-cases in computing. Finally… Expand


SearchLens: composing and capturing complex user interests for exploratory search
Results from a controlled lab study suggest that the approach incentivized participants to express their interests more richly than in a baseline condition, and a field study showed that participants found benefits in SearchLens while conducting their own tasks. Expand
Schema induction and analogical transfer
An analysis of the process of analogical thinking predicts that analogies will be noticed on the basis of semantic retrieval cues and that the induction of a general schema from concrete analogs willExpand
SOLVENT: A Mixed Initiative System for Finding Analogies between Research Papers
SOLVENT is introduced, a mixed-initiative system where humans annotate aspects of research papers that denote their background, purpose, mechanism, and findings, and a computational model constructs a semantic representation from these annotations that can be used to find analogies among the research papers.

Reasoning and learning by analogy.
Analogy is a powerful cognitive mechanism that people use to make inferences and learn new abstractions. The history of work on analogy in modern cognitive science is sketched, focusing onExpand
Analogical problem solving
Abstract The use of an analogy from a semantically distant domain to guide the problemsolving process was investigated. The representation of analogy in memory and processes involved in the use ofExpand
Standing on the schemas of giants: socially augmented information foraging
It is shown that having access to others' schemas while foraging for information helps new users to induce more useful, prototypical, and better-structured schemas than gathering information alone. Expand
The influence of schematic knowledge on contradictory versus additive misinformation: false memory for typical and atypical items
In the current study, we examined the influence of schema consistency on contradictory and additive misinformation. Sixty-four participants were shown a series of still photographs of common scenesExpand
Analogy Mining for Specific Design Needs
This paper contributes an analogical search engine for expressing and abstracting specific design needs that returns more distant yet relevant inspirations than alternate approaches. Expand
Distributed analogical idea generation: inventing with crowds
It is shown that distributed analogical idea generation leads to better ideas than example-based approaches, and the conditions under which crowds generate good schemas and ideas are investigated. Expand
Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood:Comparing Intentions and Perceptions in Online Discussions
This work combines logged data about public comments on Facebook with a survey of over 16,000 people about their intentions in writing these comments or about their perceptions of comments that others had written, showing that intentions and perceptions diverge in consequential ways. Expand
