An internationally recognized leader in the field of cognitive development will deliver a keynote address at the upcoming International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS), to be held 23-25 March in Vienna, Austria.
APS Fellow Linda B. Smith of Indiana University Bloomington will deliver her address, titled “How Infants Break Into Language” on Friday, 24 March.
Smith plans to discuss the computational complexity of visual object recognition as understood in human and machine vision. Smith’s recent research has employed robot technology to demonstrate the role that bodily position plays in memorizing words or the names of objects. For more information on this area of research, including Smith’s own work, read the feature story Robots for Research in the Observer, APS’s membership magazine.
