Time geography inverted

Peter Kiefer, Martin Raubal, Christoph Schlieder
2010 Proceedings of the 18th SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems - GIS '10  
Mobile intention recognition is the problem of inferring a mobile user's intentions from her behavior in geographic space. Such behavior is constrained in space and time.  ...  A location-based game application demonstrates that interpreting a user's spatio-temporal behavior sequence in terms of intentions reduces ambiguity compared to mobile intention recognition without temporal  ...  Recognizing intentions in CityPoker means assigning one intention to each behavior in a spatialized behavior sequence. With SGIS, this problem becomes a problem of parsing.  ...

Event structure in perception and conception

Jeffrey M. Zacks, Barbara Tversky
2001 Psychological bulletin  
Events can be understood in terms of their temporal structure.  ...  In the sections that follow we take a series of excursions into the several literatures that address mental representations of events.  ...  In a similar vein, Byrne (in press) has argued that animals can learn to imitate behavior without a causal or intentional understanding of the behavior, based only on the statistical properties of the  ...

The Cognitive Design of Tools of Thought

Barbara Tversky
2014 Review of Philosophy and Psychology  
Some ancient outpourings of thought have survived the ravages of time, evocative paintings of animals on the walls of caves (Altamira in Spain, Chauvet in France, Apollo 11 in Namibia), maps incised in  ...  vases (Greece), tallies inscribed in bones (Ishango bone, Republic of Congo).  ...  The opinions expressed in this publication are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the funders.  ...

Agency, Networks, Past and Future [chapter]

Sander E. van der Leeuw
2008 Material Agency  
Finally, I will try and develop a perspective that might indeed help us understand the process of intention and innovation, based on some of the ideas about agency presented in this book.  ...  In this contribution, I will first draw upon the other chapters of this book to summarise what are in my opinion the essential elements of their discussion on the concept of agency and on Actor Network  ...  The temporal and the spatial dynamics are, of course closely related.  ...

Representations of the world: Memories, perceptions, beliefs, intentions, and plans

Paul Kockelman
2006 Semiotica: Journal of the International Association for Semiotic Studies  
Mental states' are retheorized from the standpoint of social statuses (qua commitments and entitlements to signify and interpret in particular ways) and speech acts (qua signs with propositional contents  ...  Using ideas developed in 'The semiotic stance' (2005a), it theorizes five interrelated semiotic processes that are usually understood in a psychological idiom: memories, perceptions, beliefs, intentions  ...  behavior in an intentional idiom.  ...

Structure, function, and behaviour of computational models in systems biology

Christian Knüpfer, Clemens Beckstein, Peter Dittrich, Nicolas Novère
2013 BMC Systems Biology  
We show that in both cases this interpretation should be performed from three perspectives: the meaning of the model's components (structure), the meaning of the model's intended use (function), and the  ...  A bio-model has a dual interpretation: On the one hand it is a mathematical expression which can be used in computational simulations (intrinsic meaning).  ...  Often, this is reflected by a partonomy of entities in a model. This partonomy is described as relations between the entities (S3).  ...

The conceptual metaphors of narrative structure: Gestural evidence for spatialized form in storytelling

Michael Kimmel
2014 The public journal of semiotics  
The study thus contributes a demonstration of Lakoff's (1987) "spatialization of form hypothesis", i.e. the wide ranging claim that structural cognition is rooted in image schemas.  ...  Overall, the data suggests that narrative form is systematically rooted in spatial logic and that dedicated structural devices dynamically co-evolve with the retelling of content.  ...  Of course, all further inaccuracies remain my own. I also thank Agnes Engleder for her assistance with the transcripts.  ...

Spatially Constrained Grammars for Mobile Intention Recognition [chapter]

Peter Kiefer
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The intentions an agent can have in a specific situation depend on the spatial context, and on the spatially contextualized behavior history.  ...  Mobile intention recognition is the problem of inferring a mobile agent's intentions from her spatio-temporal behavior.  ...  Figure 3 shows two possible interpretations for the behavior sequence from Fig. 1 : without spatial knowledge we could not decide which of the two interpretations is correct.  ...

The role of schemas and scripts in pictorial narration

2021 Semiotica: Journal of the International Association for Semiotic Studies  
and what kind of events occur in certain action sequences.  ...  There also are scene schemas that are characterized by spatial rather than temporal relations. Further kinds of schemas seem also to play a decisive role.  ...  All these action characteristics can of course be specified further, e.g., as to the means involved in the action, the temporal or spatial aspects of the setting, or the intentions or causes leading to  ...

But with an increasing level of autonomy as well as a larger temporal and spatial scope of agent operation higher-level situation analysis and assessment become essential.  ...  Autonomous systems proved to be very successful in specialized problem domains.

When goals collide: Monitoring the goals of multiple characters

Joseph P. Magliano, Holly A. Taylor, Hyun-Jeong Joyce Kim
2005 Memory & Cognition  
This interpretation is based primarily on the pattern of significance in the beta weights for the predictor variables.  ...  Specifically, a character is typically the recipient of an initiating event, which may or may not be the result of another character's intentional actions.  ...

The relation between body semantics and spatial body representations

Michiel van Elk, Olaf Blanke
2011 Acta Psychologica  
These findings suggest that the processing of body-semantics results in the activation of a detailed visuo-spatial body representation that is modulated by the specific task requirements.  ...  The spatial position of the word pairs could be congruent (e.g. EYE / MOUTH) or incongruent (MOUTH / EYE) with respect to the spatial position of the words' referents.  ...  The selective activation of spatial information in association with body semantics can be considered an instance of Allport's selection for action principle (1987) according to which a subject's task intention  ...
