The Quantitative Experience Design Lab has been awarded $15,000.00 by Activision | Blizzard in support of the lab's research on Artificial Intelligence and Game Design at the University of Utah.
Rogelio E. Cardona-Rivera, QED Lab Director and Assistant Professor of Computing and Entertainment Arts and Engineering at the University of Utah, was invited to participate in a panel on Prospective Cognition and Narrative at the 2019 AAAI Spring Symposium on Story-based Intelligence.
Rogelio E. Cardona-Rivera (QED Lab Director) and R. Michael Young have had their paper Desiderata for a Computational Model of Human Online Narrative Sensemaking accepted for publication at the 2019 AAAI Spring Symposium on Story-enabled Intelligence. The paper presents a set of constraints that computational models ought to satisfy should they purport to represent/encode the cognitive processes involved in online (i.e. during reading/viewing) human narrative sensemaking.
Rogelio E. Cardona-Rivera, QED Lab Director and Assistant Professor of Computing and Entertainment Arts and Engineering at the University of Utah, presented a talk on "Artificial Intelligence Literacy" at the Salt Lake Oasis Weekly Gathering, celebrated in Salt Lake City, UT, USA. The slides of the talk can be found here.
Undergraduate student and QED Lab Member Jennifer Nelson has been selected for participation in the University of Utah's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program [UROP] for the Spring 2019 semester. UROP provides a $1,500 stipend and educational programming for students who assist with a faculty member’s research or creative project or who carry out a project of their own under the supervision of a faculty member.

The QED Lab is currently recruiting participants who are interested in playing a virtual reality game for science. The purpose of this study is to understand the effect of different types of input devices on VR interactive fidelity. You must be 18 years or older to participate.
We’re seeking a highly motivated, talented Research Assistant to join the lab. You will participate in the full software development life-cycle of building front-end applications for our recently awarded IARPA grant (see: http://qed.cs.utah.edu/blog/qed-lab-awarded-iarpa-grant-psychic-phase-ii). This role will involve iterating with the lab team on user stories, mockups and wireframes as well as developing, documenting, and launching supporting UI application code.
The Quantitative Experience Design Lab has been awarded $169,698.75 by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) via a subcontract through Charles River Analytics to advance the development of a Predictive System for Cyber Hostility using Integrated Computational Models (PSYCHIC).
The QED Lab is currently recruiting participants who are interested in playing an adventure game for science. The purpose of this study is to understand how people make inferences during video game play. You must be 18 years or older to participate, and you must be able to read English.
