Michael N. Jones
Cognition and computation
Dr. Jones' research program uniquely combines computational, experimental, and large-scale corpus methods to demonstrate how humans acquire and process semantic knowledge. His theoretical work models learning from sequential word order, statistical properties of the input, and perceptual information simultaneously. Jones' models also can be scaled to apply to real-world problems.
Michael Jones receives the 2014 Early Career Award from Governing Board Chair Jeremy Wolfe during the opening session of the 2014 Annual Meeting in Long Beach, California.
