    Titre : Rethinking the Physical Symbol Systems Hypothesis Résumé : It is now more than a half-century since the Physical Symbol Systems Hypothesis (PSSH) was first articulated as an empirical hypothesis.  More recent evidence from work with neural networks and cognitive architectures has weakened it, but it has not yet been replaced in any satisfactory manner.  Based […]

  • Séminaire DIC-ISC-CRIA – 5 octobre 2023 par Ellie PAVLICK

    Titre : Symbols and Grounding in LLMs Résumé : Large language models (LLMs) appear to exhibit human-level abilities on a range of tasks, yet they are notoriously considered to be "black boxes", and little is known about the internal representations and mechanisms that underlie their behavior. This talk will discuss recent work which seeks to illuminate the […]

First, I will rehearse the arguments, in joint work with Raphaël Millière, that motivate the claim that language grounding (but not language understanding) is possible, and in […]

    Benjamin BERGEN – 14 septembre 2023 Titre : LLMs are impressive but we still need grounding to explain human cognition RÉSUMÉ : Human cognitive capacities are often explained as resulting from grounded, embodied, or situated learning. But Large Language Models, which only learn on the basis of word co-occurrence statistics, now rival human performance in a variety […]
