ANC Seminar - David Hogg *CANCELLED*

Joint learning of visual concepts and natural language 

Abstract: Large language models and deep learning from sensory data are transforming AI. This work has highlighted the importance of a conceptual understanding that can support human-like reasoning.  The absence of this understanding in current models limits transparency and veracity.  

In this talk, I will describe a system (OLAV) for bootstrapping knowledge in language and vision using grammar induction and word grounding to the perceptual world. The motivation is to explore approaches that might be adapted in combination with deep learning and large language models to support conceptual reasoning. 

OLAV is able to learn to form discrete concepts from sensory data, ground language to these concepts and induce a grammar for describing the perceptual world. The learning is based on raw linguistic and visual data.
