AI Group Receives John Templeton Foundation Grant

October 15, 2010
AI Group members have received a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, an organization that supports research on "big questions" in science. Professor Jerome Feldman and group leader Srini Narayanan received funding to broaden applied work on the Neural Theory of Language to language communities, public discourse, and more fundamental questions. Their project is titled "Embodied Cognition, Communities, and Foundational Issues in AI and Mathematics." Feldman also presented a paper at a recent Templeton Symposium on Top-Down Causation. A version of the paper, "Causality and Context in Cognitive Science," will be published this year by the UK Royal Society.
