Titlul prezentării sale este: ‘Stand-for Relations in Human Communication: Architecture & Evidence’. Iată și rezumatul:

‘Visual object symbols are widely used in human communication to convey information about discourse referents—the set of individuals currently under discussion. I will introduce a simple computational arhitecture to account for the psychological capacity to set up these relations in communication. The architecture consists of two layers of mental representations (one for the object symbols, and one for the discourse referents) and of two functions operating over them: (i) assignment, which establishes local links between objects and discourse referents; and (ii) labeling, which generates conceptual descriptions that attach to the discourse referents. I will then draw on young children’s pretend play to show that the capacity to interpret and exploit relations between objects and discourse referents develops early and reliably in human ontogeny. Finally, I will present a set of experiments from our lab providing evidence that human adults represent images as discourse-bound symbols and that they automatically compute what an image stands for in the current communicative context.’
