Welcome to the UW Phonology Lab!
How can neural networks be used to model human speech production and perception? What do these networks learn and how is their learning similar and different from phonological learning? What aspects of phonology result from cognitive biases and what aspects are emergent from the transmission of language in space and time? These are the central questions that the UW Phonology Lab aims to answer by combining computational models of phonological learning, statistical models of sound change, and behavioral experiments.
We’re happy to announce acquisition of a new EEG equipment. We now have a 64-channel Compumedics NeuroScan EEG in our lab.
Gašper gave two invited talks over the weekend on Generative Adversarial Networks and phonetic and phonological acquisition. Modeling phonetic and phonological processes with Generative Adversarial Networks (Nov 22, 2019 … Continue reading Gašper presents at Stanford and Berkeley
