Using computers : human factors of information systems by Raymond S Nickerson( )

22 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Industry veteran Raymond Nickerson provides an extensive introduction to the information technology revolution that is transforming industrial society. He focuses particularly on the study of person-computer interaction, noting how computers are affecting their users and society as a whole, and describes a variety of ways in which information technology is expected to develop in the forseeable future. Nickerson summarizes the development of information technology and discusses many of its applications - in farming, research, education and training, manufacturing, general management, retailing, defense, and elsewhere - that have already had a substantial impact on society. He reviews the human-factors research that has been done and is underway, with special attention to the physical and cognitive interface, including languages, conversational interactions, and the concepts of friendliness and usability. Raymond S. Nickerson is Senior Vice President of BBN Laboratories, a subsidiary of Bolt Beranek and Newman Inc. A Bradford Book."

Cognition and chance : the psychology of probabilistic reasoning by Raymond S Nickerson( )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lack of ability to think probabilistically makes one prone to a variety of irrational fears and vulnerable to scams designed to exploit probabilistic naiveté, impairs decision making under uncertainty, facilitates the misinterpretation of statistical information, and precludes critical evaluation of likelihood claims. Cognition and Chance presents an overview of the information needed to avoid such pitfalls and to assess and respond to probabilistic situations in a rational way. Dr. Nickerson investigates such questions as how good individuals are at thinking probabilistically and how consistent their reasoning under uncertainty is with principles of mathematical statistics and probability theory. He reviews evidence that has been produced in researchers' attempts to investigate these and similar types of questions. Seven conceptual chapters address such topics as probability, chance, randomness, coincidences, inverse probability, paradoxes, dilemmas, and statistics. The remaining five chapters focus on empirical studies of individuals' abilities and limitations as probabilistic thinkers. Topics include estimation and prediction, perception of covariation, choice under uncertainty, and people as intuitive probabilists. Cognition and Chance is intended to appeal to researchers and students in the areas of probability, statistics, psychology, business, economics, decision theory, and social dilemmas

Aspects of rationality : reflections on what it means to be rational and whether we are by Raymond S Nickerson( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aspects of Rationality: Reflections on What it Means to be Rational and Whether We Are examines and explores the many unanswered questions about human rationality by asking: What does it mean to be rational, and to reason well effectively? How does rationality relate to our knowledge and beliefs, our values, our judgments, and our decisions? Are we rational as individuals? As a species? In this book, Dr. Raymond S. Nickerson discusses much of the experimental research that has been done on reasoning as it relates to the question of human rationality, and comes to conclusions not typically offered by current volumes discussing this subject."--Jacket
Mathematical reasoning : patterns, problems, conjectures, and proofs by Raymond S Nickerson( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores when and why the rudiments of mathematical capability first appeared among human beings, what its fundamental concepts are, and how and why it has grown into the richly branching complex of specialties that it is today. It discusses whether the 'truths' of mathematics are discoveries or inventions and what prompts the emergence of concepts that appear to be descriptive of nothing in human experience. Also covered is the role of esthetics in mathematics: What exactly are mathematicians seeing when they describe a mathematical entity as "beautiful"? There is discussion of whether mathematical disability is distinguishable from a general cognitive deficit and whether the potential for mathematical reasoning is best developed through instruction." "This volume is unique in the vast range of psychological questions it covers, as revealed in the work habits and products of numerous mathematicians. It provides fascinating reading for researchers and students with an interest in cognition in general and mathematical cognition in particular. Instructors of mathematics will also find the book's insights illuminating."--Jacket
