Il ricercatore del MIT Deb Roy voleva capire come il suo bambino imparasse la lingua — così ha riempito la sua casa di videocamere per catturare ogni momento (con alcune eccezioni) della vita di suo figlio, ha quindi analizzato 90.000 ore di video casalinghi per guardare "gaaa" trasformarsi lentamente in "water". Una ricerca strabiliante e ricca di dati, con profonde implicazioni su come impariamo.

Cognitive scientist
Deb Roy studies how children learn language, and designs machines that learn to communicate in human-like ways. On sabbatical from MIT Media Lab, he's working with the AI company Bluefin Labs. Full bio
