Research interests:

I am interested in collaborative cognition, particularly in learning situations. I do detailed processes analyses of problem solving and knowledge integration comprehension, both in experimental settings and in classrooms, to understand how our internal knowledge interacts with external resources to help knowledge grow. This external resource naturally involves other humans, more capable as well as less capable others, as sources for diverse perspectives and ideas. Recently I have been directing a project to develop collaborative learning curriculum for undergraduate cognitive science. This project has provided us with rich data to think about how much we know about human learning of complex contents like human cognition, and how cognitive science can help us learn better. Some of my current work also involves designing and evaluating IT interfaces, in relation to learning sciences, including robots for facilitation of dynamic support for collaborative learning.

 

Conference chair experiences:

In 1997 I had a chance to co-chair CSCL97 with Professor Rogers Hall, and CSCL2011 with Professors Hans Spada and Gerry Stahl. I chaired the programming committee for the 2nd International Conference of Cognitive Sciences based in Asia-Pacific region held in Tokyo, Japan, in 1999, one of the biennial meetings of a pacific-rim cognitive science society with members in Korea, China, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. I also have co-chaired with Professor Ron Sun CogSci2006 to be held in Vancouver in 2006. In 2012, I will be co-chairing the program committee for the 34th Annual Meeting of Cognitive Science Society with Professors David Peebles and Rick Cooper. This conference will be the first international annual meeting of The Cognitive Science Soceity in Asia, and will be held jointly with the International Association of Cognitive Science (Asia-Pacific).

Human Robot symbiosis 2009-2013 (Principal investigator)
Recently, we are witnessing the advent of a society where robots support people in their daily life. For this future society, our research project aims to realize a society of human-robot symbiosis, in which humans and robots mutually learn from each other based on trust relationships. It involves three research directions. Robotics research will enable us to improve the perceptual and computational capability of robots to fulfill required quality of interaction. For example, with recent advancement in robotics, robots are able to recognize people's behavior and able to communicate with gestures and talk. Studies in cognitive science will provide evidences how people build trust relationships with robots, and in turn will enable us to design robots that will be able to build trust relationship with people. Studies in learning sciences started to reveal necessary conditions with which people produce creative and intelligent outcomes through collaboration with others as well as reflecting self thought and act. Therefore, by using robots to satisfy such conditions, we expect that robots will be able to play a fundamental role in enhancing the quality of the cognitive process taking place in a collaborative work.
