This book is about Information Foraging Theory (IFT), a new theory in Adaptive Information Interaction that is one example of a recent flourish of theories in adaptationist psychology that draw upon cal theory in biology. IFT assumes that people (indeed, all organisms) are ecologically rational, and that human information-seeking mechanisms and strategies adapt the structure of the information environments in which they operate. Its main aim is to create technology that is better shaped to users

In this book, Peter Pirolli supplies such a theory, driving the program to have a supporting science of HCI forward .

Pirolli's book represents a significant achievement in both science and engineering - providing broad, theoretically based and empirically validated insights into human information behavior and the design of information artifacts.

Information Foraging Theory book.

Peter Pirolli covers information foraging theory (IFT), a theory in adaptive information interaction. Recently added by. librarianconley, axel streichen, bwa32, steven gardiner, idiosyncratic.

This book is about Information Foraging Theory, which aims to explain and predict how people will best shape themselves to their information environments, and how information environments can best be shaped to people. This book presents the details of empirical investigations of its predictions, and applications of the theory to the engineering and design of user interfaces. The theory and methodology have been developed by drawing upon work on the rational analysis of cognition, computational cognitive modeling, behavioral ecology, and microeconomics.

Peter Pirolli, the father of Information Foraging Theory, has written a landmark book about a new field in human-computer interaction. He challenges us with formulas, diagrams and bold insights to learn and adapt, or be left behind. In our world of information overload, knowing how people find their way and how we can help is critical. Anderson, J. R. (1990). The adaptive character of thought. Hillsdale, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

Although much of the hubris and hyperbole surrounding the 1990's Internet has softened to a reasonable level, the inexorable momentum of information growth continues unabated. This wealth of information provides resources for adapting to the problems posed by our increasingly complex world, but the simple availability of more information does not guarantee its successful transformation into valuable knowledge that shapes, guides, and improves our activity. When faced with something like the analysis of sense-making behavior on the web, traditional research models tell us a lot about learning and performance with browser operations, but very little about how people will actively navigate and search through information structures, what information they will choose to consume, and what conceptual models they will induce about the landscape of cyberspace. Thus, it is fortunate that a new field of research, Adaptive Information Interaction (AII), is becoming possible. AII centers on the problems of understanding and improving human-information interaction. It is about how people will best shape themselves to their information environments, and how information environments can best be shaped to people. Its roots lie in human-computer interaction (HCI), information retrieval, and the behavioral and social sciences. This book is about Information Foraging Theory (IFT), a new theory in Adaptive Information Interaction that is one example of a recent flourish of theories in adaptationist psychology that draw upon evolutionary-ecological theory in biology. IFT assumes that people (indeed, all organisms) are ecologically rational, and that human information-seeking mechanisms and strategies adapt the structure of the information environments in which they operate. Its main aim is to create technology that is better shaped to users. Information Foraging Theory will be of interest to student and professional researchers in HCI and cognitive psychology.
