Turning The Partial-Closed World Assumption Upside Down

Simon Razniewski, Ognjen Savkovic, Werner Nutt
2016 Alberto Mendelzon Workshop on Foundations of Data Management  
The partial-closed world setting provides an intermediate ground between open-world and closed-world settings.  ...  Previous work on the partial-closed world assumption assumes that incompleteness is the default, i.e., that databases in general can be incomplete, and are only definitely complete in specified parts.  ...  Acknowledgment This work has been partially supported by the projects "MAGIC", funded by the province of Bozen-Bolzano, and "TaDaQua", funded by the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.  ...

Perceived size and perceived distance of targets viewed from between the legs: Evidence for proprioceptive theory

Atsuki Higashiyama, Kohei Adachi
2006 Vision Research  
In comparison 1, 15 observers inverted their heads upside down and saw the targets between their own legs; another 15 observers viewed them while being erect on the ground.  ...  When path analysis and partial correlation analysis were applied to the whole data, perceived size was found to be independent of perceived distance.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was partially supported by the Ritsumeikan University Research Fund to A.H. and by Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research #16530480 from the Ministry of Education, Science,  ...

Sinking, fast and slow: Bifurcating beta in financial and behavioral space

James Ming Chen
2015 Aestimatio The IEB International Journal of Finance  
This assumption is vulnerable on both descriptive and behavioral grounds. Many of the predictive flaws in contemporary finance stem from mathematically elegant but empirically flawed Gaussian models.  ...  Beta's separate components address the distinct managerial concerns arising from loss aversion (or upside speculation) and from changes in correlation under different market conditions.  ...  I now turn to that subject.  ...

The attraction of visual attention to texts in real-world scenes

H.-C. Wang, M. Pomplun
2012 Journal of Vision  
higher attractiveness of texts; (b) the locations where texts are typically placed contribute partially to this effect; (c) specific visual features of texts, rather than typically salient features (e.g  ...  For this purpose, data from a previous experiment were reanalyzed and four new experiments measuring eye movements during the viewing of real-world scenes were conducted.  ...  Acknowledgments Parts of the data were presented at the European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP 2010) and the Asia Pacific Conference of Vision (APCV 2011).  ...

Calling for a Plurality of Perspectives on Design Futuring: An Un-Manifesto

Noura Howell, Britta F. Schulte, Amy Twigger Holroyd, Rocío Fatás Arana, Sumita Sharma, Grace Eden
2021 Extended Abstracts of the 2021 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems  
The Futures Cone, a prominent model in design futuring, is useful for promoting discussions about possible, plausible, probable, and preferable futures.  ...  Yet this model has limitations, such as representing diverse human experiences as a singular point of "the present" and implicitly embedding notions of linear progress.  ...  The project is supported by the Academy of Finland (Grant #318930 and Grant #324685, Make-a-Diference project) and the University of Oulu.  ...

Turning the Face Inversion Effect on Its Head: Violated Expectations of Orientation, Lighting, and Gravity Enhance N170 Amplitudes

Yasmin Allen-Davidian, Manuela Russo, Naohide Yamamoto, Jordy Kaufman, Alan J. Pegna, Patrick Johnston
2020 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience  
For instance, rotating an image of a face upsidedown not only violates the expectation that faces appear upright but also lifelong priors about illumination and gravity.  ...  We recorded EEG while participants viewed face stimuli (upright vs. inverted), where the faces were illuminated from above versus below, and where the models were photographed upright versus hanging upsidedown  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to acknowledge the gentle encouragement of the Oily Rag Foundation (EN10006).  ...

Dynamic Effects on the Subjective Visual Vertical After Roll Rotation

Erika N. Lorincz, Bernhard J. M. Hess
2008 Journal of Neurophysiology  
In the constant acceleration paradigm, subjects were rotated with an acceleration of ϩ30 or Ϫ30°/s 2 to the same seven end positions between Ϫ90 and ϩ90°, by way of passing once through the upside-down  ...  In the constant velocity paradigm, subjects were rotated in darkness at Ϯ60°/s for five complete cycles before being stopped in one of seven orientations ranging from 0 to Ϯ90°(right/left ear down).  ...  As a consequence, the span encompasses both A-and E-type errors in close to upside-down positions, when the final tilt angle was approached from below.  ...
