The Information Processing Based on Attention Allocation

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 161)


From relative quantity analysis of attention allocation, this paper has deduced the rule that tolerance of attention consumption reduces with time. Then, we can explain that the information searcher tends to selectively pay attention to information. Via anatomising study mechanism between information searched and priori knowledge, we have inquired into optimized paths during multi-periods dynamic allocation process. So this paper opened out entire course of information processing.
