Understanding computers and cognition : a new foundation for design by Terry Winograd( Book )

73 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding Computers and Cognition presents an important and controversial new approach to understanding what computers do and how their functioning is related to human language, thought, and action. While it is a book about computers, Understanding Computers and Cognition goes beyond the specific issues of what computers can or can't do. It is a broad-ranging discussion exploring the background of understanding in which the discourse about computers and technology takes place. Understanding Computers and Cognition is written for a wide audience, not just those professionals involved in computer design or artificial intelligence. It represents an important contribution to the ongoing discussion about what it means to be a machine, and what it means to be human

Bringing design to software by Terry Winograd( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book contains essays contributed by prominent software and design professionals, interviews with experts, and profiles of successful projects and products. These elements are woven together to illuminate what design is, to identify the common core of practices in every design field, and to show how software builders can apply these practices to produce software that is more satisfying for users. The initial chapters view software from the user's perspective, featuring the insights of experienced software designers and developers, including Mitchell Kapor, David Liddle, John Rheinfrank, Peter Denning, and John Seely Brown. Subsequent chapters turn to the designer and the design process, with contributions from designers and design experts, including David Kelley, Donald Schon, and Donald Norman. Profiles discussing Mosaic, Quicken, Macintosh Human Interface Guidelines, Microsoft Bob, and other notable applications and projects highlight key points in the chapters. This book is for a broad community of people who conceive, develop, market, evaluate, and use software. It is foremost for software designers - particularly the reflective designer who is driven by practical concerns yet is able to step back for a moment and reflect on what works, what doesn't work, and why. At the same time, it reveals new directions and new possibilities for programmers who build software and for product managers who bring software to market

Procedures as a representation for data in a computer program for understanding natural language by Terry Winograd( Book )

22 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes a system for the computer understanding of English. The system answers questions, executes commands, and accepts information in normal English dialogue. It uses semantic information and context to understand discourse and to disambiguate sentences. It combines a complete syntactic analysis of each sentence with a heuristic understander which uses different kinds of information about a sentence, other parts of the discourse, and general information about the world in deciding what the sentence means. The objectives of the project are a practical language-understanding system, a better understanding of what language is and how it is put together, and an understanding of what intelligence is and how it can be put into a computer.

The language/action approach to the design of computer-support for cooperative work : a preliminary study in work mapping by Finn Kensing( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Over the past few years, a methodology has been proposed by Flores, Winograd and their associates, for designing computer- based support systems and the reorganization that they can bring to cooperative work. This paper describes a study using an anthropologically based technique for systematic observation and interpretation of work flow, which relates this language/action perspective to the Scandinavian approach to systems development through participatory design. Our field study in an airport operations room has demonstrated the applicability of the theoretical framework and has clarified some practical issues in applying it to analyzing and redesigning work activities."

Learning HCI design : mentoring project groups in a course on human-computer interaction by Stanford University( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We discuss: the background for the projects; the role of mentors in the learning process; what is required of mentors and what benefits they get; how to support the mentoring process; and what we have learned from the experience so far. We consider mentors to be a critical part of the design project within the course, and we welcome a sharing of experience with other people who may have developed similar courses where mentors played an important role."
