GreatMindsWorking.com is a site dedicated to news from fields including A.I., computational linguistics, robotics, developmental psychology, machine learning, and cognitive science, with special focus on language-related technologies.

This site also provides information about Experience-Based Language Acquisition (EBLA), the software system that I developed as part of my dissertation research at the LSU Department of Computer Science.

User Accounts & News Submissions

Back in July of 2004 I had to modify the permission system on this site to require users to register in order to make comments because of problems with spam. This had the negative side effect of blocking unregistered users from both submitting news and, moreover, trying to register!

Everything should be fixed now, and I apologize for any inconvenience.

Once again, anyone can submit news to this site.
