New paper: "Relating dynamic brain states to dynamic machine states: Human and machine solutions to the speech recognition problem"

Hey!

I just had a paper published in PLOS Computational Biology.  It's on some work I did with the Centre for Speech, Language and the Brain at Cambridge University.  In it, we used a machine model of speech recognition to map phonetic sensitivities in human auditory cortex using magnetoencephalography neuroimaging data.

The paper is open-access, so you can read it here.

If you're interested, you can read more about the kind of research I do over at my "professional" website.

Here's what I'm doing this week: the 28th annual Mathematical Foundations of Programming Semantics conference.  I am presenting a paper there, "A graphical foundation for schedules", joint work with my PhD supervisors Guy McCusker and John Power.  There's a preliminary version of the paper which will eventually appear in ENTCS.  The talk had slides, though they contained unnecessary illustrative animations which are not there on the pdf.
