Abstract:Computational cognitive models of human performance build integrative scientific theory of human perception, cognition, memory, and action. These theories can be used to predict aspects of human performance and usability for improving in human-computer interfaces. There is a special synergy between cognitive modeling and eye tracking. Eye tracking is very useful for evaluating and refining aspects of cognitive models. In this talk, Dr. Hornof will present his research on computational cognitive models of visual search, and on eye tracking that he uses to evaluate the models of visual search. Dr. Hornof will also present more artistic work in which eye tracking is used as a real-time input device by children with severe motor impairments, enabling them to draw pictures with their eye movements, and also a project in which computer musicians perform live music and multimedia compositions using only their eye movements.
