Visualizations are discrete (?) Questioned One or more paragraphs p. 800 «At the other extreme, the spatial and depictive representations are low in terms of discretion and scope, as they provide many details but are limited to spatial and visual information.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations are open for mental interaction (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 802 «Similar to Pegged Blocked World, the agent solves these problems by imagining the situation and the outcome of its actions before choosing an action to execute.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations are precise (i.e., verbose) (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 811 «The agent with mental imagery provides more information to reason from as its spatial and visual reasoning is more accurate than reasoning strictly with abstract symbols.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations enable flexible usage (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 805 «For example, the house in Fig. 1 might be encoded as two polyhedrons, one each for the roof and the frame, both as part of a ‘‘house’’ object. The agent can reason at either level, considering the roof independently, or the house as a whole.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations make data accessible (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 800 «For example, from the image in Fig. 1, information such that the roof of the house looks like a triangle and overhangs the frame of the house is directly accessible.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations reduce effort (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 799 «Even if equivalent information is present in each representation, processing efficiency may vary across them.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
