1 Drs. Arjen van Alphen Dr. Tibor Bosse Prof. dr. Catholijn M. Jonker Mevr. Francien Koeman Wieke Akkerman Research Assistant

2 Dog Cognition Project “Paw preference correlates to performance in dogs” 2/8

3 - The first paw moving forward - Good or bad performance ABC Definitions 3/8 Going straight to the goody and eating the goody

4 Observable vs. interpreted behaviour 4/8 Standard MethodOur Method Defining concepts Scoring - observable behaviour - interpreted behaviour by several observers Statistics Defining concepts formal & informal Scoring - observable behaviour by several observers Interpretation by computer Statistics

5 What do you need? 1 Formal language & definitions 2 Formal annotation 3 Observers annotating all behavioral items 4 Computer software to check Vocabulary XML Annotate the behaviour 5/8

7 - Possibility of redefining definitions - New hypotheses automatically checked against existing material Advantages of transcripts 6/8 and no need to annotate again!

8 Using formal techniques in behavioural research: Pro Contra Using formal techniques improves the scoring technique in behavioural research! - observable information - interpretation by computer, no human - more objective scoring method - redefining definitions & checking new hypotheses without annotating again - a lot of work! - software Discussion and Conclusion 7/8

9 Questions? 8/8 www.mmi.tudelft.nl/dog-cognition/
