What to do when search fails

Duen Horng Chau, Brad Myers, Andrew Faulring
2008 Proceeding of the twenty-sixth annual CHI conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '08  
Feldspar's contributions include (1) an intuitive user interface that allows users to find information by interactively and incrementally specifying multiple levels of associations as retrieval queries  ...  , such as: "find the file from the person who I met at an event in May"; and (2) algorithms for collecting the association information and for providing answers to associative queries in real-time.  ...  This material is based in part upon work supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under Contract No. NBCHD030010.  ...

When the head does not know what the eyes do: Head and eye movement planning differ in access to information during visual search [article]

Szonya Durant, Tamara Watson
2022 bioRxiv   pre-print
AbstractTo characterize the process of visual search, reaction time is measured relative to stimulus onset, when the whole search field is presented in view simultaneously.  ...  This work investigated how objects are detected in the periphery when onset in the visual field is due to head movement. Is the process of target detection similarly affected by salience?  ...  When looking around to find something, often what we are searching for may not be within our current field of view (FoV) and we need to move around to find it.  ...

Why reforms fail

Wesley G. Skogan
2008 Policing and Society: An International Journal of Research and Policy  
The position of unions vis-a-vis change is highly variable, particularly if proposals do not threaten working conditions and officer safety.  ...  The public must understand how the investment they have in policing will be enhanced, and not threatened, by reform.  ...  First, when programs are new, sergeants are new to it as well.
