A Cognitive Approach to Sketch Understanding

Ronald W. Ferguson and Kenneth D. Forbus

Sketching is an interactive process of communication, using drawings and linguistic information to convey spatial and conceptual material. Our work on a computational model o sketching has the goal of both explaining human sketching and creating software that can be a human-like partner in sketching interactions. This focus has lead us to explore a very different set of tradeoffs from those typically chosen in multimodal interfaces. We highlight some results of ou approach, including research performed using GeoRep, ou diagrammatic reasoning architecture, and sKEA, a multi modal sketching tool used for knowledge acquisition in spatial domains.cc
