PRE CogSci 2013 in Berlin

The Production of Referring Expressions workshop was held as part of the Cognitive Science Society’s conference this year in Berlin. Several of us from SAsSY were involved, and you can see the poster that Kees and I presented here.

One thing that struck me at the conference was that lots of researchers have recently started using an old way of analysing eye movements again in new ways. When people carry out tasks that are cognitively demanding, their pupils dilate and contract more frequently than usual. We can use this information and plan experiments that measure pupil size to figure out how difficult people find it to understand the output of our software. We will use this to help the software present information to people in more easily comprehensible ways. When our results are in, you’ll be able to read about them here on the blog as well as in scientific papers.
