Cognitive modeling of web search

A significant challenge for computational cognitive modeling is to develop high-fidelity models of web surfing. To successfully model the entire task both software and cognitive engineering problems must be solved. At ACT-R-2005, we addressed some of the software engineering challenges posed by the task of attaching an ACT-R model to a web browser (Gamard, Schoelles, Kofila, Veksler, & Gray, 2005). In this talk we focus on the cognitive engineering challenges posed by the need to navigate and search a near infinite number of heterogeneously designed web pages in pursuit of a weakly specified target.
