Understanding Memory by Building It: Constructing Semantic Memory Using Large-Scale Naturalistic Data

Saturday, May 24, 2014, 9:00 AM - 9:35 AM
Imperial Ballroom B

Memory research has a rich history using carefully controlled laboratory experiments. However, semantic memory develops over a lifetime of linguistic and perceptual experience, making it necessary to study semantic acquisition at a human scale. This presentation will evaluate models of semantic learning that are ‘grown’ on large real-world datasets, demonstrating the importance of scale for human learning.

This is part of the Big Data: Understanding Patterns of Human Behavior Theme Program.
