CIS Distinguished Lecturer Series

Edit, Sat 11 Mar 2006 - Here's the CIS Seminar List if you aren't familiar with it. I learned later from Greg Monaco in Psychology that a lot of people who are potentially interested in computational models of cognitive processes are not on our seminar list because:

  • a) there haven't been that many speakers in the areas of human-computer interaction (HCI), natural language processing (NLP), cognitive science, computational neuroscience, brain theory, and cognitive psychology

  • b) most of the "language processing" talks in our department are hardcore programming languages talks (the one last Friday on Example-Based Machine Translation by Violetta Cavalli-Sforza was a rare exception), and are harder for cogsci folks to grok

  • c) most Psych people are unaware of our seminar website or our mailing list (possibly what our department actually does as research, too, but that's another story)

From now on, I'll be reposting links to Distinguished Lecturer talks from the seminar site here, just in case.
