Do humans have conceptual models about geographic objects? A user study

Ahmet Aker, Laura Plaza, Elena Lloret, Robert Gaizauskas
2013 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Our analysis of the 6,169 questions collected in the survey shows that humans have shared ideas of what to ask about geographical objects.  ...  In this article, we investigate what sorts of information humans request about geographical objects of the same type.  ...  Having shown that there may be a conceptual model of geographic objects, our short-term goal is to study and analyze whether such models also can be applied to other languages such as Spanish or German  ...

Subjective objectivity

Lucian Leahu, Steve Schwenk, Phoebe Sengers
2008 Proceedings of the 7th ACM conference on Designing interactive systems - DIS '08  
Many systems have either focused on objective measures as a substitute for subjective experience (e.g. skin conductance as a direct representation of arousal) or have abandoned objective measures to focus  ...  Our approach is informed by a reflective analysis drawing on the arts and the humanities and by a participatory study examining the emergence of emotional meaning.  ...  In looking for ways to think about how objective measures may relate to the subjective dimensions of emotion, we began by looking to the arts and humanities, which have a greater focus on the subjective  ...
