January 18: Daniel Lassiter (Stanford), “Compositional Probabilistic Models of Vagueness”

The first meeting of the workshop in Winter Quarter will be on Friday, January 18th, 11.30am-1.30pm, in Wieboldt 408 (same time, new location), featuring Daniel Lassiter, a postdoc in the Computation and Cognition Lab at Stanford, who got his PhD in Linguistics at NYU in 2011 and an MA in Philosophy from Otago in 2005. Dan’s talk is quite thrillingly entitled “Compositional Probabilistic Models of Vagueness: Computational Implementation, Experimental Evidence, and Cognitive Implications”. Please join us!

And here is our preliminary schedule for Winter Quarter.
