Capturing context and mental state of knowledge workers

Saskia Koldijk
2012 Proceedings of the 4th Information Interaction in Context Symposium on - IIIX '12  
 Automatic recognition of context and user state: how can we enable inference of relevant aspects of context and user state, based on unobtrusive sensing?  ...  We created an initial model to link various sensors to these different aspects of the user's context and mental state [3] .  ...

Automatic recognition of context and stress to support knowledge workers

Saskia Koldijk
2012 Proceedings of the 30th European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics - ECCE '12  
Research approach -We collect unobtrusive sensor data and apply pattern recognition approaches to infer the context and stress level of the user.  ...  Findings/Design -The resulting system will be able to create more awareness on stress for knowledge workers, support them to improve their working pattern, resulting in an increase of well-being at work  ...  Much information about the user's current context and state can be captured.  ...

Interruptibility of Software Developers and its Prediction Using Psycho-Physiological Sensors

Manuela Züger, Thomas Fritz
2015 Proceedings of the 33rd Annual ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '15  
With recent advances in psycho-physiological sensors and their link to cognitive and emotional states, we are interested whether such sensors might be used to measure interruptibility of a knowledge worker  ...  Interruptions of knowledge workers are common and can cause a high cost if they happen at inopportune moments.  ...  This work was funded in part by SNF and an ABB research grant.  ...

A Knowledge Component Framework for Enhancing Transdisciplinary Knowledge Assimilation

John N. Carbone, Stephen Ekwaro-Osire
2010 Transdisciplinary Journal of Engineering & Science  
Abstract Research shows that generating new knowledge is accomplished via natural human means: mental insights, scientific inquiry process, sensing, actions, and experiences, while context is information  ...  the importance threshold to become established in the mind of the stakeholder Context: Information which characterizes knowledge and gives it meaning Recursion: Repeated application of functions on information  ...  Specifically, a methodology was developed for capturing and representing organizational knowledge as a six-step procedure, which ranged from defining organizational knowledge to creation of a knowledge  ...

Using Visual Histories to Reconstruct the Mental Context of Suspended Activities

Adam Rule, Aurélien Tabard, Jim Hollan
2017 Human-Computer Interaction  
For example: What types of mental context do knowledge workers typically reconstruct when resuming suspended activities?  ...  These questions led us to conduct a second study of the practices and cues knowledge workers currently use to restore mental context for a range of activities.  ...

An Overview of Information Management and Knowledge Work Studies: Lessons for the Semantic Desktop

Eyal Oren
2006 International Semantic Web Conference  
We extract six practical lessons: focus on the individual, forget rigid classifications, follow the links, remember the context, value the power of paper, and keep it simple.  ...  The contribution of this paper is not technical, but presents an overview of relevant semantic desktop literature from the personal information management and human-computer interaction domains.  ...  From the literature, the following six categories of challenges emerged: a lack of good and thorough activity models of the knowledge worker, a misperception of the mental model behind categorising, an  ...

GLUCOSE: GeneraLized and COntextualized Story Explanations [article]

Nasrin Mostafazadeh, Aditya Kalyanpur, Lori Moon, David Buchanan, Lauren Berkowitz, Or Biran, Jennifer Chu-Carroll
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Using this platform, we collected a total of ~670K specific statements and general rules that capture implicit commonsense knowledge about everyday situations.  ...  However, when state-of-the-art neural models are trained on this knowledge, they can start to make commonsense inferences on unseen stories that match humans' mental models.  ...  We thank Andy Beck for the discussions around the GLUCOSE knowledge model and Jesse Dunietz for his discussions on the paper.  ...

A taxonomy of performance shaping factors for shield tunnel construction

Jue Li, Minghui Yu, Hongwei Wang
2018 Engineering Construction and Architectural Management  
First, a description of the STC context is proposed through the analysis of the STC context.  ...  The harsh underground working conditions and diverse resources of system information are identified as key characteristics of the STC context.  ...  The remaining PSFs constitute the mental state of workers in the STC context. The following is the relevant PSF groups and detailed PSFs.  ...

Understanding Personal Productivity

Young-Ho Kim, Eun Kyoung Choe, Bongshin Lee, Jinwook Seo
2019 Proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '19  
To deconstruct productivity's diverse and nebulous nature, we investigate how knowledge workers conceptualize personal productivity and delimit productive tasks in both work and non-work contexts.  ...  We report a 2-week diary study followed by a semi-structured interview with 24 knowledge workers.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank our study participants for their time and efforts. We also thank Junhoe Kim and Valérie Erb for improving the OmniTrack platform.  ...

Experiences of mental health support workers in mental healthcare practice: three visual art narratives

Briege Casey, Margaret Webb
2021 Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing  
Mental health support workers (MHSWs) make positive contributions to mental health recovery practice yet their roles and support needs are often unclear.  ...  S MHSW skills and knowledge were evident, however, this expertise and recovery focus was not valued in mental health services.  ...  Each image is quite different, and an analysis of both images reveals interesting perspectives about co-existing and possibly ambivalent states of providing and needing help in the context of mental health  ...
