CSE 717: SEMINAR:
|Instructor:||Prof. William J. Rapaport|
|Times:||Mondays 2:00 - 4:50 p.m.|
We are (1) developing a computational theory of how natural-language-understanding systemsincluding both computational and human cognitive agentscan automatically acquire new vocabulary by determining from context a meaning for words that are unknown, misunderstood, or used in a new sense, and (2) adapting the algorithms for doing this to a curriculum so that these methods can be taught to students in a classroom setting.
The knowledge gained from case studies of students using our CVA techniques will feed back into further development of our computational theory.
