Takashi Iba & Members of Iba Lab | “Pattern Mining Workshop: How to Find Patterns from Experiences”
Pattern languages have recently been paid attention to as new tools for learning and creativity. A pattern language is a set of patterns that describe practical knowledge in a target domain, where practical knowledge refers to both the ability to notice problems as well as to solve them. In creating a pattern language, it is necessary to go through a “mining” process in the beginning, to gather contents of what would eventually be written out as patterns. Pattern mining is a process to extract the knowledge of practice (rules of thumb and tips) from experiences and cases. Such information is gathered through mining dialogues (self-reflections or interviews), after which they are clustered based on similarity, in order to find out the common points from the extracted knowledge and organize them. In this workshop, we provide an opportunity for participants to get an overview of how to create pattern languages, focusing on how to mine patterns from personal experiences and experiences from others.
