Summary form only given. A scenario is a meaningful sequence of events. For the decision of human, it is essential to create valuable scenarios of the future and choose one to realize. This talk is composed of two topics: (1) computational methods for visualizing a scenario map: a figure visualizing the relations between events, on which humans can think about scenarios. The obtained scenarios can be regarded as patterns of event occurrences in the past or beneficial plans to be executed in the future. (2) Human's competencies for sensing a (or a sequence of) valuable event, and new criteria for evaluating the value of forthcoming events. We have been studying this talent from the viewpoint of cognitive science and business management.
