Characteristics of human-generated random symbols depend on symbol types and generation methods
Hiro-Fumi Yanai, Takao Mori (Ibaraki Univ.)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We gathered and analyzed random sequences of symbols generated by human
subjects. We focused on the types of symbols (the ten digits or a subset
of size ten of Japanese Kana, i.e. Japanese alphabet), and on the types of generation
methods (oral calling out or keyboard pressing). For the frequencies of
Japanese Kana, we observed strong dependence on the Kana's canonical
position on the Japanese Kana diagram. Whereas for the digits, the
distribution was almost flat. We should note that the Japanese
Kana's occurence frequencies in everyday communication are almost
decreasing with the canonical position of the standard Japanese Kana
diagram. For the methods of generation, we found that the subjects
preferred central keys of the linearly aligned keyboard, whereas they
reported no such preferences.
