Revision as of 09:21, 30 September 2010

The research of this group covers theoretical approaches and computational modelling of crucial phenomena in cognitive science, primarily related to language acquisition and processing. The learning methods focus on neural networks applied to various language subtasks (grammar learning, or lexical/sentence semantics), as well as a general adaptive method based on distinguishing criteria. Recent research goals include linking language learning with cognitive robotics.
