Four Problems Solved by the Probabilistic Language of Thought

Steven T. Piantadosi, Robert A. Jacobs
2016 Current Directions in Psychological Science  
We argue for the advantages of the probabilistic language of thought (pLOT), a recently emerging approach to modeling human cognition.  ...  approaches, (c) explains the origins of novel and complex computational concepts, and (d) provides a framework for abstraction that can link sensation and conception.  ...  Acknowledgments We are extremely grateful to Jay McClelland and Jacob Feldman for providing detailed and insightful comments on this article.  ...

Quantum Metalanguage and The New Cognitive Synthesis

Alexey V. Melkikh, Andei Khrennikov, Roman Yampolskiy
2019 NeuroQuantology  
The process of cognition within the framework of the concept of a quantum metalanguage involves the selection of adequate a priori existing (innate) programs (logical variables and rules for working with  ...  Why are a priori inferences possible? Why can a human understand but a computer cannot?  ...  It is this language that distinguishes people from computers. People, in addition to logical rules, have meta-logical rules.  ...

A Bidirectional Relationship between Conceptual Organization and Word Learning

Tanya Kaefer, Susan B. Neuman
2013 Child Development Research  
In order to examine this model, we recruited 104 4-year olds from Head Start classrooms; 52 children participated in a two-week training program, and 52 children were in a control group.  ...  We proposed a bidirectional model in which increases in word learning lead to increases in taxonomic organization, which, in turn, leads to further increases in word learning.  ...  Many thanks are due to Ashley Pinkham for her helpful comments and to the children who participated in this research.  ...

First Language Acquisition: Psychological Considerations and Epistemology

Davood Mashhadi Heidar
2012 Theory and Practice in Language Studies  
In this article I mainly present a general overview of theoretical/epistemological and classical/modern accounts and approaches to the study of first language acquisition.  ...  In other words, the present paper is to investigate the psychological/epistemological considerations of first language acquisition with the aim of shedding a bit of light on this human-species phenomenon  ...  Neither logical analyses nor computational modeling alone will be conclusive in building a comprehensive theory of language acquisition unless supplemented by empirical research.  ...

Word learning and the acquisition of syntactic--semantic overhypotheses [article]

Jon Gauthier, Roger Levy, Joshua B. Tenenbaum
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We show that children applying such inductive biases are accurately reflecting the statistics of child-directed speech, and that inducing similar biases in our computational model captures children's behavior  ...  Thus solving a more complex joint inference problem may make the full problem of language acquisition easier, not harder.  ...  We modify this lexical induction process by using a probabilistic model to seed initial weights for these candidate interpretations.  ...

One model for the learning of language

Yuan Yang, Steven T. Piantadosi
2022 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Until recently, the computational requirements of language have been used to argue that learning is impossible without a highly constrained hypothesis space.  ...  The model is able to successfully induce the latent system generating the observed strings from small amounts of evidence in almost all cases, including for regular (e.g., an, (ab)n, and {a,b}+), context-free  ...  We are grateful to Yim Register, Frank Mollica, Sam Cheyette, Holly Palmeri, Josh Rule, András Kornai, and Ced Zhang for helpful comments and conversations about this work.  ...

Bootstrapping in a language of thought: A formal model of numerical concept learning

Steven T. Piantadosi, Joshua B. Tenenbaum, Noah D. Goodman
2012 Cognition  
We present a computational framework for understanding this inductive leap as the consequence of statistical inference over a sufficiently powerful representational system.  ...  The model shows that bootstrapping can be made computationally and philosophically wellfounded as a theory of number learning.  ...  , Justin Halberda, Liz Spelke, Irene Heim, Dave Barner, Barbara Sarnecka, Rebecca Saxe, Celeste Kidd, Leon Bergen, Eyal Dechter, Avril Kenney, an anonymous reviewer, and members of CoCoSci and TedLab for  ...
