Vitality affects of a website - what we were not used to think about #WeUsedTo

Katrin Heimann, Assistant Professor
Interacting Minds Centre and Dept for Linguistics, Cognitive Science and Cognitive Semiotics.

Abstract: On explicit demand I will take the opportunity to continue last week's focus on ongoing work within the art-research collaboration EER. In particular, my talk will present micro-phenomenological (MP) data on the experience of #weusedto, a website launched in May 2020 as a tool to explore how the Covid-19 pandemic disrupts lives around the world by prompting reflections about our past and present realities. I hope that the presentation will not only allow portraying and discussing MP as a tool in the design of human computer interactions but also as a means to document the experience of art-science-interventions and will bring us to talk about the further use of the data as well as the website and its concept as such.

Sunlight graffiti for two: Exploring movement co-creation between art and science

Cordula Vesper, Associate Professor
Interacting Minds Centre and Dept for Linguistics, Cognitive Science and Cognitive Semiotics.

Abstract: The ability to work together and share experiences with one another is an essential characteristic of human nature. Whereas the focus of much joint action research regards the cognitive processes involved in achieving a concrete goal together, the desired outcomes of creative joint processes such as in dance or music improvisation seem less clearly defined. Often, it is the experience of social interaction itself that is at the core and that can be rewarding and transformative.

Sunlight graffiti, a 2012 artwork by Olafur Eliasson, is all about movement, dance, and, embodiment. As part of the IMC-headed interdisciplinary project Experimenting, Experiencing, Reflecting, we have turned it into a new art-science installation: a joint movement that is both aesthetic experience and experiment. In this talk, I will tell a story of trying to bridge fields as diverse as art and science, movement and visualization, subjective experience and social coordination, and I will present first results from our investigation of improvised movement co-creation in the context of art museums.

The puzzle of Danish: what a (not so) exotic language can teach us about the amazing flexibility of human cognition

Talk by Riccardo Fusaroli, Cognitive Science

Human languages vary in surprising ways, and much research has shown how our ways of looking at the world (conceptual systems) vary accordingly. However, little is known as to how linguistic differences impact our very basic cognitive processes: the way we process, integrate and produce information. This is the gap that the Puzzle of Danish (a FKK funded project) is tackling. Full abstract here.

#BlivHjemme: How COVID-19 Unfolded in Scandinavian News and Social Media

 

Talk by Rebekah Baglini, IMC

Although socio-culturally and linguistically close, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark chose different measures to confront the COVID-19 pandemic: Denmark and Norway quickly imposed lockdowns, while Sweden largely avoided imposing government prohibitions.

This talk reports on in-progress research on the Scandinavian media landscape during the Covid-19 era, conducted as part of the HOPE Project (How Democracies Cope with Covid-19: A Data-Driven Approach). Using Danish newspaper data, we combine latent variable modeling and information theory to show how legacy media respond to a catastrophe that has both social and natural factors. And using a nearly comprehensive sample of Twitter data from all three countries from April-June, we model variation in topical and sentiment patterns aligned with the epidemic's progression and government policy interventions.

Aligning minds: Cultural co-evolution of language, perspective-taking and conversational repair

Talk by Marieke Woensdregt, Radboud University Nijmegen

How did humans learn to communicate successfully? Natural languages come with a significant amount of ambiguity and underdeterminacy: any given utterance can have an infinite set of potential intended meanings (Carston, 2002; Wasow et al., 2005)

The cultural route to conceptualization of urban space

 

Talk by Cordula Vesper and Kristian Tylén, Cognitive Science

Our experiences of the surrounding cultural and physical environment are largely shaped by conceptualizations originating in social interactions (Tylén et al. 2013, Latour 1996). Through social interactions we align and conform our attentional profiles and representational construal of space (Nölle et al. 2020). This has the implication that aspects of experience of the environment can potentially differ as a function of the cultural group with which we have a history (Majid et al. 2004).

What do the experts know: An empirical investigation of adaptive search

Talk by Oana Vuculescu, Department of Management, AU

Abstract:Using a novel dataset from the TopCoder platform we investigate solver’s search for solutions  as well as the role of expertise in shaping their problem solving process. We find that while some solvers on the platform do act according to the win-stay, lose-shift rule, skilled solvers are less likely to rely on this meta-heuristic, and that somewhat counter-intuitively experts make more smaller changes, that is, they change their solutions more often than non-experts, but when they do, they make smaller changes.
