      TERTIARY is a delicate trio that explores how dynamic movement can allow us to witness a person's conceptual thoughts by instantly combining action and perception. Neuro-scientific theories assert that the borders between individuals are not sharply outlined or separable. Together with dancers, Austrian Karin Pauer and Portugese Raul Maia, the trio incorporates classical, soul and Hollywood film music, guiding the spectator to feel with their eyes. Concept: Michael O'Connor Choreography/Performance: Raul Maia, Michael O'Connor, Karin Pauer Music: Harold Arlen, Aretha Franklin, Alexander Kasses, Three Degrees, Schubert/Liszt Sound Editing: Alexander Kasses Lighting: Alexander Kasses Costume: Esther Steinkogler Production assistant: Claire Granier Production: a waiting dog Further info: www.awaitingdog.com Special thanks to Elio Gervasi for making this productin possible. Additional thanks to Roman Harrer, Guy Cools, Claudia Bosse, Philipp Gehmacher, Claus Lamm, Elisabeth Zimmerman, Elisabeth Oberzaucher, Michael Turinsky, Liz King.

                  Salience of space and meaning construal in the language of the blind The blind experience restrictions in their exploration of space because they lack visual input, and visual experience plays a crucial role in developing a representational framework for spatial representation (Silverstone et al 2000). However, specificities of haptic exploration of space result in the blinds' extraordinary experience of the world, and, therefore, it is reasonable to assume that linguistic meaning construal of the blind is likely to show certain bias towards topological elements in composite wholes. This talk will focus on the results of a study of meaning construal of English particle verbs. The aim of the study was to investigate meaning construal in blind subjects by (re-) hypothesizing the results of two previous bodies of research: a) the investigation into semantic determination (lexical vs. topological) in the process of constructing meaning of English particle verbs (PVs) in the sighted (Geld 2011, Geld and Maldonado 2011, and Geld and Letica Krevelj 2011), and b) the investigation into salience and situatedness in the language of the blind (Geld and Stanojević 2006, Geld and Šimunić 2009). The results obtained support the idea that meaning construal is a tremendously dynamic process, as well as provide tentative evidence that the extraordinary perceptual experience of the blind is likely to affect the ways in which they construct linguistic meaning. Renata Geld is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Zagreb, Croatia and visiting scholar at Case Western Reserve University.

                    Coast to Coast: Seminar Series: "Visual Analytics as a Cognitive Science" Dr. Brian Fisher School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University Date: Mar 26, 2013 Abstract This talk explores the larger implications of visual analytics-- "the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces"-- for cognitive science and informatics. I will argue that the methods that will advance this new science go beyond those of natural science and engineering, and will require researchers to create a new translational cognitive science of analytic systems. We will begin by building field study methods that characterize human and computational cognitive capabilities as they are used for decision-making in a range of situations. Because findings from field methods do not generalize well, we must then investigate these proposed capabilities in the laboratory. Finally we must build mathematical and computational theories that predict the impact of changes in technology on cognitive processes in technology-rich environments. These methods will only suffice until processing capacity reduces the lag between an analyst's query and a graphical response to a certain level. When the response is generated at the same pace as the sequence of cognitive operations that the analyst performs, human and computational processes become "close coupled". At this point the distinction between processes originating from the mind of the analyst (i.e. a mental representation) versus the computer (i.e. a visualization) become impossible to determine, and the subsystems we will study will seamlessly incorporate natural and artificial processes.

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
