Visit to Stanford

Stanfords beautiful campus has more galleries than corridors I spent these past two weeks visiting Stanford university, at the invitation of Martin Kay, thinking about how to enrich distributional models to handle more situtational factors, how to work on what features of an utterance encode such aspects of semantics that might be most relevant to situational models, and on various other ideas tangentially connected to these thoughts. I hope to return for a longer visit next year. (As it turns out, these two weeks were well chosen, in view of the inclement weather back home in Stockholm.)
