|Title:||Computational Cognitive Modeling of Touch and Gesture on Mobile Multitouch Devices: Applications and Challenges for Existing Theory|
|Published:||July 24, 2013|
|Abstract:||As technology continues to evolve, so too must our modeling and simulation techniques. While formal engineering models of cognitive and perceptual-motor processes are well-developed and extensively validated in the traditional desktop computing environment, their application in the new mobile computing environment is far less mature. ACT-Touch, an extension of the ACT-R 6 (Adaptive Control of Thought-Rational) cognitive architecture, seeks to enable new methods for modeling touch and gesture in today‰s mobile computing environment. The current objective, the addition of new ACT-R interaction command vocabulary, is a critical first-step to support modeling users‰ multitouch gestural inputs with greater fidelity and precision. Immediate practical application and validation challenges are discussed, along with a proposed path forward for the larger modeling community to better measure, understand, and predict human performance in today‰s increasingly complex interaction landscape.|
