Abstract:

Neural networks provide an alternative method of building models of human performance. They can learn behavior from examples, reducing the need for many identical repetitions and intensive analysis. A properly trained net can be very robust in its response to a novel stimulus. This opens the door to modeling performance in the presence of an interactive stimulus. Neural networks provide the possibility of robust models that can operate interactively in real time, depending on the size and architecture of the net and the application. A neural network architecture derived from recurrent back propagation is presented which learn to mimic human behavior and performance in a sample task. It shows operating characteristics similar to those of human subjects, and even makes the same kinds of mistakes. Possible application are discussed. js
