Title: Prediction in the Processing of Repair Disfluencies

Title: Bridging NLP and brain science to improve natural language understanding

Abstract: Natural language processing systems have made impressive strides in producing useful task-oriented language tools - but even the most sophisticated NLP systems fall dramatically short of the human brain in robustness and nuance of language understanding. A particular area of need in NLP is that of sentence composition: the combinatory capacity that allows humans to generate and understand the meanings of infinite sentences based on their parts.

How do listeners use their two ears to better understand speech in noisy environments, or to locate the source of a sound in the space around them? How are these processes different for people with two cochlear implants rather than normal hearing? These are just some of the questions that occupy Matt Goupell, Assistant Professor in Hearing and Speech Sciences and director of the Auditory Perception and Modeling Lab.

Does the way that you write your language affect how you speak it too? New research by Chuchu Li, Min Wang and Bill Idsardi suggests that it does.
