A Computer Terminal Network for Transparent Stimulation of the User of an On-Line Retrieval System.
A computer terminal network to enable "transparent stimulation" of the user of an on-line retrieval system has been designed, implemented, and pilot tested. Its basic purpose is to provide a suitable and effective framework and methodology for experimental identification/validation of those human characteristics which should be recognized/reinforced in man-computer interface design. The rationale behind the transparent stimulation approach is presented and the methodology employed for such real-time, unobtrusive scanning and manipulation of the man-computer dialogue is described. A general overview of the hardware and software features of the implemented stimulation network is included. (Author)
