Abstract
In this project we propose to study two important aspects of knowledge: learning and communication. Our approach is computational. Thus
on the one hand our theories of learning and communication are formulated mathematically and as computational processes, and on the
other hand, as a consequence of being computational these theories lend themselves to fairly direct computer implementation, both for
experimentation and for development of applications.
Learning and communication are interelated; for example learning a language involves trial communication, and participation in
communication typically leads to learning. Here we structure our investigation of these mixed fields in three broad categories: Learning, Learning/Communication, and Communication, each subdivided into theory and applications, with theory generally
providing the necessary foundations for applications.
The learning theory part studies entailment bases for query learning and machine learning and mining in data streams; learning
applications are public health, finance and social networks. The learning/communication theoretical part covers learning probabilistic finitestate
machines as models for formal languages; the learning/communication applications are animal communication, child language
evolution and acquisition of semantics. The communication theoretical part includes model theory and proof theory of categorial logic; the
communication applications are parsing/theorem-proving and computational grammars of English, Catalan and Spanish.
