I’m always glad to see more methods from research in Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning getting coverage in the media and being explained with some level of detail. Take a look at these two articles on applications of Artificial Intellgience methods in the study of the learning language in infants and in the effects of psychedelic drugs diagnosis. They give a nice high level overview of two powerful approaches that are not quite standard in AI and Machine Learning. The language learning robot is doing supervised learning with reinforcement learning approach where the agent randomly explores a landscape and weights good experiences to improve it’s model. The drugs study is applying a classifier to text descriptions about psychedelic trips and trying to predict the drug that causes it.

Researcher. Educator. Blogger. Optimist.
The best way to summarize me is to link to the places where you can read my writing.
I am a currently a postdoctoral scholar at Oregon State University on the search for a great faculty job in Computer Science. My research is generally in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Specifically, I look at the computational challenges to making good decisions about how to act in the face of uncertainty when actions need to be taken at many locations in space at each moment in time.
Currently, I am very excited and involved in a new field of research called Computational Sustainability which attempts to combine advances in AI, Machine Learning and Operations Research and other fields with the ridiculously challenging problems that exist in Ecology, Sustainable Resource Management, Forest and Wildlife Management and Climate Change.
Everything else I have to say tends to show up on Google+, so feel free to look me up there and say hi.
