LIN14: Computational Cognitive Models of Meaning


We study and develop cognitively plausible computational representations of linguistic meaning and algorithms to process those representations.

Active since: 2021

Closed Group of Collaborators

  • University of Rochester
  • Cornell University

Collaborative Goals

Our goals were to discuss the various ongoing projects in each group to provide a venue for students to network with their peers and to facilitate collaboration. We were successful in meeting our goals. We had a great meeting with several interesting presentations, and we designed pilot studies to run during this next year.

Group Outcomes

  • Our students were able to build up their peer networks.
  • We discussed several possible future collaborations. Some of these involved collecting data in other countries, such as South Korea and India. We have begun pilot studies to develop the research infrastructure to collect data in those countries and collect pilot results for those collaborations.
  • We plan to use this infrastructure to support applications for external funding in future years.
