BI 053 Jon Brennan: Linguistics in Minds and Machines

00:00 / 01:33:24

Jon and I discuss understanding the syntax and semantics of language in our brains. He uses linguistic knowledge at the level of sentence and words, neurocomputational models, and neural data like EEG and fMRI to figure out how we process and understand language while listening to the natural language found in everyday conversations and stories. I also get his take on the current state of natural language processing and other AI advances, and how linguistics, neurolinguistics, and AI can contribute to each other.


Recently I was interviewed on Ginger Campbell’s podcast Brain Science.

You can hear more about me, the show, and a bit about deep learning and how it relates to neuroscience if you’d like.
