​One of the main goals of the study of expertise is to improve training methods in order to better create more experts in fields like surgery or piloting. Because surgeons and pilots are difficult to study, we turn to Tetris as a medium, in the hopes that understanding how skill is developed in this complex and dynamic task can later be applied to more relevant real world tasks. Tetris has also long been a favorite task of computer modelers, who use it as a testbed for new machine learning methods. Previous work sought to combine these two methods, using computer models of Tetris to replicate and then predict human behavior. This talk will present several potential future directions for this work, both by making improvements to the existing models and by finding new ways to use the models in the analysis of human behavior.
