New article published on modeling metaphor using distributional semantics

An article is out from some of us who worked together at Queen Mary University of London: Stephen McGregor, myself, Karolina Rataj (well, not based at QMUL), Matthew Purver, and Geraint Wiggins. Our work is entitled, Re-Representing Metaphor: Modeling Metaphor Perception Using Dynamically Contextual Distributional Semantics.

Last week I presented a talk entitled "A Computational Approach to Modelling the Perception of Pitch and Tonality in Music" at the 37th Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society took place in Pasadena, California, 23-25 July 2015. The theme was Mind, Technology, and Society. A copy of the conference proceedings paper may be found here:
