(New) 9 March 2021, Machine learning, logic, and structured knowledge, Balder ten Cate

Date & Time: Tuesday 9 March 2021, 18:15-19:00
Speaker: Balder ten Cate (Google Research)
Location: Online via Zoom

Over the last decade, advances in machine learning have taken the computer science community by storm, enabling new applications and pushing the envelope on existing ones. Even on tasks that are traditionally viewed as falling in the domain of logical reasoning (e.g., reading comprehension tasks), deep neural models are now the state-of-the-art. Furthermore, logic and learning are perceived by some as being distinct or even opposing approaches. At the same time, while various algorithmic and hardware limitations that inhibited deep learning solutions in the past have been successfully addressed, other fundamental problems arise, such as problems concerning fairness, explainability, and controllability. In this talk, I will discuss a few problems at the intersection of machine learning and logic, including providing deep models with means to access structured knowledge.

(New) 29 - 30 March 2021, Workshop Lexical Restrictions on Grammatical Relations

Date & Time: 29 - 30 March 2021, 09:00-16:30
Location: Online via Zoom

In many languages grammatical relations are to some extent lexically restricted, in the sense that certain verbs or verb classes take different argument coding frames than others. While such constraints are well studied for case marking, they have also been reported for grammatical relations defining other types of constructions, including a range of voice- and valency-related constructions and some clause-combining constructions. This hybrid (on-line/on-site) workshop aims to unite scholars from different (sub)disciplines, bringing together descriptive, comparative, corpus-based, and experimental studies, as well as studies that compare linguistic data with genetic and/or socio-historical evidence. Together, we hope to further our understanding why lexical restrictions should exist, how they are processed and acquired, and why/how/where they persist in languages.
