This page just summarizes my records in the graduate school. To see my full records, come to my website,
  • Connectionist models (PDP models): deep learning, neural information processing
  • Cognitive science: computational models of cognitive processes. I want to understand how the brain works on an algorithmic level.
  • Language models for machine learning
  • Learning inference and knowledge structures
