This means a lot
How do we learn the meaning of new concepts?
Inspired by projects like HistWords, we use natural language processing techniques to model changes in word meanings during an introduction to computer science course. Our goal is to then use this model to predict changes in neural activity that occur as students learn new ideas.
Methods & tools:
- Natural Language Processing (NLP)
- High-performance computing (HPC) (on prem)
- Python3, TensorFlow & PyTorch
- Functional MRI
- Pattern analysis (MVPA)
