Supporting cognition in systems biology analysis: findings on users' processes and design implications

Barbara Mirel
2009 Journal of Biomedical Discovery and Collaboration  
Current usability studies of bioinformatics tools suggest that tools for exploratory analysis support some tasks related to finding relationships of interest but not the deep causal insights necessary  ...  for formulating plausible and credible hypotheses.  ...  I would like to thank Ben Keller, Fan Meng, Weijian Xuan, and Magesh Jayapandian for their critical reviews of or collaborative contributions to the design implications of findings.  ...

The US Department of Justice stumbles on visual perception

Thomas D. Albright
2021 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
A large and highly valuable category of forensic evidence consists of patterned impressions created during the perpetration of a crime.  ...  By means of this "forensic feature comparison," the observer makes a judgment about whether the evidence and the model are sufficiently similar to support common origin.  ...  All of the opinions expressed herein are my own and not necessarily representative of the relevant advisory bodies on which I have served, including the National Commission on Forensic Science and the  ...

Rethinking Intensive Quantities via Guided Mediated Abduction

Dor Abrahamson
2012 The Journal of the Learning Sciences  
However, the formal expression of these quantities uses a/b analytic metrics; for example, the slope of a line is the quotient of its rise and run.  ...  The analysis highlights a form of reasoning called abduction and suggests that sociocognitive processes can guide and mediate students' abductive reasoning.  ...  become volatile impressions warranting inferential support; the mathematical machinery that spurs this doubting and repositioning of intuitive judgment in turn takes on the role of supporting the judgment  ...
