Shane Steinert-Threlkeld will teach January Research Project at ILLC on neural networks methods for quantifiers. “In this project, students will develop tools and run (computational) experiments to test the hypothesis that semantic universals arise because expressions satisfying them are easier to learn than those that do not.” If you’re interested in what we do in CoSaQ project or maybe even you would like to collaborate with us, this is a great opportunity.
Logical Methods in Cognitive Science Seminar. Warsaw Edition
I have designed and have been teaching a seminar on the recent trends and methods emerging at the intersection of cognitive science, logic, language, information, and computation. If you would like to know more have look at the website of the seminar. This year I have been invited to teach the class at my alma mater. Hence, I’ll be soon back at the University of Warsaw. This time in a different role. Looking forward to it!
