Active physics learning data 2016 - 2016, UCL, NYU and MIT

Neil Bramley, Tobias Gerstenberg, Todd Gureckis & Joshua Tenenbaum
In these experiments we bring together research on active learning and intuitive physics to explore how people actively about physical properties in "microworlds" with continuous spatiotemporal dynamics. In two experiments, participants interacted with objects in simulated two-dimensional microworlds governed by a real-time physics engine, with the goal of identifying latent physical properties of the objects in the scenes, such as their masses, and forces of attraction or repulsion. We find an advantage for active learners...
