Analytical Connectionism Workshop

Lab member Hadar Karmazyn-Raz is speaking at the University College London in the UK on September 7th. Her workshop will be about Infant’s natural play: ‘webbing’ knowledge at multiple time-scales. She will talk about the temporal statistics of infant natural play with objects and how it creates knowledge structures that resemble story-telling, with central main theme-objects tethered to multiple comment-objects around them.

New Paper Alert!
