Evans' Varieties of Reference and the anchoring problem

Michael L. Anderson
2003 Robotics and Autonomous Systems  
It is likely that Evans' discussions of demonstrative and recognition-based reference will have the most immediate relevance to those involved in understanding anchoring.  ...  the inadequacy of their versions of the above criteria) but it does neatly and naturally suggest three varieties of reference deserving of further investigation: (1) information-based reference, (2) demonstrative  ...  Thus, for instance, he has argued that symbol anchoring requires the ability to interact with and manipulate the objects in one's environment.  ...

Context, Culture, and Structuration in the Languages of Australia

Nicholas Evans
2003 Annual Review of Anthropology  
Some of these processes, such as the emergence of subsection terminology and moiety lects, operate over speech communities that transcend any single language and can only be explained if the relevant processes  ...  Examples of the emergence of culturally patterned structure through use are drawn from various levels: the semantics of the lexicon, grammaticalized kin-related categories, and culture-specific organizations  ...  Consider the problem of explaining how a single word can mean both "hear" and "know" (Evans & Wilkins 2000) .  ...

OTMCL: Orientation tracking-based Monte Carlo localization for mobile sensor networks

Marcelo H. T. Martins, Hongyang Chen, Kaoru Sezaki
2009 2009 Sixth International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems (INSS)  
In this paper we consider a probabilistic approach to the problem of localization in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) consisting of mobile nodes, and propose a distributed algorithm that help unknown nodes  ...  Simulation results indicate that the intermix of orientation data with sampling and filtering augments the overall accuracy of the positioning system, while maintaining a low communication cost.  ...  The authors would like to thank David Evans, Aline Baggio, Masoomeh Rudafshani, and Shigeng Zhang for providing assistance with MCL, MCB, MSL, and ZJL, respectively.  ...

An introduction to the anchoring problem

Silvia Coradeschi, Alessandro Saffiotti
2003 Robotics and Autonomous Systems  
Anchoring is the problem of connecting, inside an artificial system, symbols and sensor data that refer to the same physical objects in the external world.  ...  Our goal is to provide a general overview of the anchoring problem, and highlight some of its subtle points.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was funded by the Swedish KK Foundation and Vetenskapsrådet.  ...

Two minds, three ways: dual system and dual process models in consumer psychology

2012 AMS Review  
of marketing messages, the evaluation of productrelated information, and purchasing behavior.  ...  Abstract Dual system and dual process views of the human mind have contrasted automatic, fast, and non-conscious with controlled, slow, and conscious thinking.  ...  Anchoring is also associated with the integration of other types of numerical information, such as reference pricing.  ...

A study in the cognition of individuals' identity: Solving the problem of singular cognition in object and agent tracking

Cognitive sophistication does not attenuate the bias blind spot

Richard F. West, Russell J. Meserve, Keith E. Stanovich
2012 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology  
In 2 studies, we found replicable bias blind spots with respect to many of the classic cognitive biases studied in the heuristics and biases literature (e.g., Tversky & Kahneman, 1974) .  ...  Additional analyses indicated that being free of the bias blind spot does not help a person avoid the actual classic cognitive biases.  ...  The two anchoring problems we used here were adapted from Tversky and Kahneman (1974) and Epley and Gilovich (2004) .  ...
