For computers to serve humanity adequately they must be able to work with human language. Only then will we have ...
Data derive from a variety of sources. Imperfect, mixed, varied, and inconsistent, data's first challenge is to accept its inherent messiness. The second challenge is to accept its uncertainties.
The mind is this century's scientific frontier. Exploring it with intelligent use of technology will give us ...
These technologies have the potential to transform the way we solve social problems.
Data derived from government and commercial sources, including social media sites, mobile phones and transaction data — are offering new ways to understand and predict human behavior. Can this potential be exploited for the good of society? What opportunities are presented by big data? What are the dangers?
Nowhere is the data problem more technically challenging than with text. Words, utterances, documents contain information vital to commerce, science, and public governance. The insights afforded by the analysis of large volumes of textual data are yet to be fully understood and appreciated.
Computational neuroscience is poised to give us the most significant window ever into the human mind and human behavior.
