  • K.Claire and J.Weng, "WWN-Text: Cortex-Like Language Acquisition with "What" and "Where"," in Proc.10th IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning, Ann Arbor, MI, Aug 18-21, 2010.

Academic Projects:

  • WWN: Language Acquisition and Generalization Using Association (Master's Thesis): Worked on a developmental, general purpose model for language acquisition using multiple motor areas. The neural network that was primarily cortex inspired, modeled the human lexical semantic area along with the dorsal and ventral pathways. The system was the first what-where network for language acquisition that could perform association based reasoning or generalization to create new sentences and learn semantics. I was able to simulate early language acquisition in children of ages 2 to 6.
  • Phishing Solution (Network security project): Developed a program to detect phished websites used data mining and hashing methods to identify the content of the page.
  • Baseball MVP Prediction: DataMining project that ranked the players according to their statistics to predict the Most Valuable Player.
  • E-ARMOR: Software engineering project focusing on the various cycles of software development, I was a part of a team of four that designed and develop an electronic equivalent of the Physician's Desk Reference to provide the health analysis and polypharmacy effects of the various drugs being administered based on a patient's vitals.
