Observing Interventions: A logic for thinking about experiments [article]

Fausto Barbero, Katrin Schulz, Fernando R. Velázquez-Quesada, Kaibo Xie
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The resulting logic can model reasoning about thought experiments.  ...  Crucial for our approach is the idea that the notion of an intervention can be used as a formal expression of a (real or hypothetical) experiment.  ...  Just thinking about an experiment will teach you nothing about the outside world. You need to observe the effects.  ...

2003 Cognitive Science  
Information about the structure of a causal system can come in the form of observational datarandom samples of the system's autonomous behavior-or interventional data-samples conditioned on the particular  ...  Here we study people's ability to infer causal structure from both observation and intervention, and to choose informative interventions on the basis of observational data.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported in part by a grant from NTT Communication Sciences Laboratory.  ...

Inferring interventional predictions from observational learning data

2008 Psychonomic Bulletin & Review  
In two experiments, we therefore presented learners with trial-by-trial observational learning input referring to a complex causal model consisting of four events.  ...  Previous research has shown that people are capable of deriving correct predictions for previously unseen actions from passive observations of causal systems (Waldmann & Hagmayer, 2005) .  ...  For example, physicians often observe symptoms (i.e., effects) prior to learning about their causes.  ...

Peer Observation as a Professional Development Intervention in EFL Pedagogy

Zulfiqar Ahmad
2020 International Linguistics Research  
Most research on peer observation as a professional development intervention in EFL contexts focuses either on teachers' perceptions about its usefulness or the methodical frameworks.  ...  To fill this gap, the present study arranged a peer observation for a reading lesson on top-down processing skills to reflect upon the strengths and weaknesses of the lesson as well as develop the reading  ...  The reader's world view or knowledge about the topic, and an association with the past experience or exposure, all facilitate the regulation of context for comprehension.  ...

The role of learning data in causal reasoning about observations and interventions

Bjöörn Meder, York Hagmayer, Michael R. Waldmann
2009 Memory & Cognition  
Recent studies have shown that people have the capacity to derive interventional predictions for previously unseen actions from observational knowledge, a finding that challenges associative theories of  ...  In Experiment 1, the causal strength of the links within a given causal model was varied, whereas in Experiment 2, base rate information was manipulated while keeping the structure of the model constant  ...  Thus, counterfac tual interventions combine inferences about observations with inferences about interventions.  ...
