On Context for Language-Endowed Intelligent Agents

19/03/2017 - 12:00

That context plays an important – possibly, crucial – role in language processing and decision making is a truism. But what counts as context is different for different tasks and different people. I will discuss several facets of context used as major sources of heuristic knowledge required of an artificial intelligent agent emulating human functioning. I will concentrate on tasks related to language understanding and generation as well as decision making in a goal-oriented task environment where the agent is a member of a team whose members can be other agents or humans.


I will be happy to talk to whoever would want to talk with me! 

But, of course, the main reason for my visit is being able to talk with you about potential collaborations.
