David Joyner and Ashok Goel have had a paper accepted to the 2014 Intelligent User Interfaces conference in Haifa, Israel. The paper is titled MILA-S: Generation of agent-based simulations from conceptual models.
David Joyner successfully presented the proposal for his dissertation titled Metacognitive Tutoring for Inquiry-Driven Modeling.
Over the past three weeks, over 250 students at a local middle school have used MILA to explore a recent massive fish kill in Lake Clara Meer. This experiment builds on the pilot study run in the summer of 2012.

Maithilee Kunda and Swaroop Vattam have both had papers accepted for poster presentation at the annual meeting of the Cognitive Science Society, which will take place in Berlin, Germany, this summer. Congrats!
Professor Li Shu from University of Toronto visited DILab. She gave a talk entitled “Biological analogies and environmental lead-user insights as sources of ideas for conceptual design,” and engaged in a productive discussion on the use of natural language processing in biologically inspired design.
At the Georgia Tech Research & Innovation Conference (a.k.a., GTRIC), Bryan Wiltgen presented a poster that he co-authored with Dr. Ashok K. Goel. The poster was titled “Towards an Artificial Teammate: Understanding Team Interactions in Biologically Inspired Design”.
Gongbo Zhang, a Master’s student in Computer Science, has joined DILab. He will work on the Biologically Inspired Design project. Welcome, Gongbo!
