Stephen Pulman "Language, Learning, and Creativity"

With every new wave of progress in artificial intelligence, such as that promised by the current ''deep learning'' paradigm, it's natural to ask the question whether these advances get us any nearer to a machine that could pass the Turing test, or that could use language creatively. In this talk, I'll explore these issues, in particular looking at some parallels between the implications for human learning that we could derive from current deep learning methods, and the intellectual climate of behaviourism and empiricism in language learning and use that Chomsky was reacting against.
