Categorization in Real-World Tasks

Abstract : We examine the role of category representations for decision-making in real-life tasks. To this end, we empirically examine how people categorize kitchen objects and make use of categories when storing objects in a kitchen. We then compare two computational models and their ability to represent the participants' mental models. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the models and point the way to further research.
