    Workshops & Infosessions


    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

  • NL Seminar Learning from language: Intersections of infant and machine learning

    Thu, Jul 11, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Sandy La Tourette, Northwestern University

    Talk Title: Learning from language: Intersections of infant and machine learning

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Young infants and machine learning algorithms face many of the same fundamental challenges when learning language. Learners often must identify referents in complex scenes, determine the relevance of different object features, and extend labels from previously viewed referents to new ones. In this talk, I examine several ways that infants solve these problems. In some cases, our work reveals word learning mechanisms that are specific to the infant learner, such as labels' influence on object representations. However, other word learning mechanisms, like infants capacity for semi supervised learning, show striking similarities in the ways that infants and machines overcome the challenges of language learning. Both similarities and differences offer intriguing opportunities for mutually informative, interdisciplinary exchanges.


    Biography: Sandy LaTourrette is a 5th year Ph.D. student in Cognitive Psychology at Northwestern University, advised by Dr. Sandra Waxman. He is a NSF Graduate Fellow, and his work focuses on the interactions of language learning and cognition across human development.
