The Neurolinguistics Laboratory at the National Research University Higher School of Economics invites you to attend a lecture by Joseph MacInnes, Assistant Professor at the School of Psychology “Computational models of semantic memory: their use as both critic and guide”on Thursday, April 14 at 17:00.
Lecture abstract: Stochastic models of semantic similarity can be trained from large corpora of natural language text and have been suggested as models of semantic memory. I will show two additional uses for these models: first as a semantic critic in a Turing test task, and second as a semantic guide for eye movements in visual search.
The event will take place at the Neurolinguistics Laboratory, 21/4 Staraya Basmannaya Street, building 1, room 510.
Please sign up HERE to attend the lectures. If you need a pass to enter the building, please do not forget to bring your passport or ID to the event.
