Current Research Projects

The major current project is the Neural Theory of Language effort in natural language understanding and learning, previously known as L0.

There is a recent book on NTL. From Molecule to Metaphor: A Neural Theory of Language, MIT Press, 2006. There is also a related website  that has news and reviews of the book and also will hopefully help further the development of a Unified Cognitive Science.

  I am also active in a variety of efforts to extend opportunities in IT to underserved groups. The major current project is CoPE,  a Community of Practice Environment. This is a multidisciplinary group, based at ICSI and affiliated with the UC Berkeley  CITRIS  endeavor, which works on a variety of issues concerning Information Technology and Society. Another ongoing project is BFOIT, the Berkeley Foundation for Opportunities in Information Technology.

A completed project is the Sather language, compiler, libraries and system. My personal work focused on the parallel extension, which is called pSather.
