Adaptive Problem Solving using Off-the-Shelf Adaptive Design

Construction of an Environment to Foster Adaptive Problem-Solving Skills based on the Cognitive Behavioral Science Theory of Action Selection and Memory

Our lab is developing a wearable device capable of measuring everyday behaviours. Our goal is to find the connection between these unconscious behaviors and our decision process, to enhance our life-styles and create a safer society.

This project consists of 3 stages:

  1. Find which information is relevant for our daily decision process and create a wearable device capable of recording this information.
  2. Analyze these data and create a decision model that can predict and support our adaptive problem solving skills.
  3. Design a support system that can be used in daily-life, that help us look back into past actions and support the decision of future events.

By understanding which elements from our daily behaviour influence our decision process, we can create a support system that enhances our Adaptive Problem Solving Skills, helping us make faster and better decision.

Based on the cognitive-behavioral science theory of action selection and memory, this study constructs an environment that smoothly integrates “memory enhancement by behavioral measurement, problem-solving behavior extraction, and cognitive process visualization” into individual activity lines by visualizing cognitive processes during task execution by the 4-PROCESS.


This project is supported by the Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (KAKENHI) Program from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).
