Abstract When explaining other people's behavior, people generally find some explanations more satisfying than others. We propose that people judge behavior explanations based on two computational principles: simplicity and rational support—the extent to which an explanation makes the behavior “make sense” under the assumption that the person is a rational agent. Furthermore, we present a computational framework based on decision networks that can formalize both of these principles. We tested th...

Replication studies in psychological science sometimes fail to reproduce prior findings. If these studies use methods that are unfaithful to the original study or ineffective in eliciting the pheno...

Risen and Gilovich (2008) found that subjects believed that “tempting fate” would be punished with ironic bad outcomes (a main effect), and that this effect was magnified when subjects were under c...

: Boyer & Petersen (B&P) argue that a "rudimentary exchange psychology" is responsible for many of people's folk-economic beliefs that are at odds with the consensus views of economists. However, they focus primarily on macroeconomic beliefs. I argue that the same rudimentary exchange psychology could be expected to produce fairly accurate microeconomic intuitions. Existing evidence supports this prediction.

Abstract People are capable of learning other people’s preferences by observing the choices they make. We propose that this learning relies on inverse decision-making—inverting a decision-making model to infer the preferences that led to an observed choice. In Experiment 1, participants observed 47 choices made by others and ranked them by how strongly each choice suggested that the decision maker had a preference for a specific item. An inverse decision-making model generated predictions that w...
We are developing a system for human-robot communication that enables people to communicate with robots in a natural way and is focused on solving problems in a shared space. Our strategy for developing this system is fundamentally data-driven: we use data from multiple input sources and train key components with various machine learning techniques. We developed a web application that is collecting data on how two humans communicate to accomplish a task, as well as a mobile laboratory that is in...
