Reasoning in a Human Mode

Duska Rosenberg and Keith Devlin

This paper focuses on the informational structures and knowledge experts use to perform different kinds of task. We explore ways of formalizing some critical aspects of these tasks and the possible benefits of such formalization for our understanding of both human and computer reasoning strategies. We present an inter-disciplinary analysis of expert reasoning with information in both stylized documents and multimedia, and discuss the differences between the kind of strategies we think people use and the kind that can be formalized and designed into an intelligent system.
