Welcome to the Neural Networks Research Group web site.

The group is directed by Prof. Risto Miikkulainen and is located at the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin.


Two Projects on Language Rehabilitation Started

The two projects continue our collaboration with Swathi Kiran's lab at Boston University. The first is a new 5-year NIH grant where the the BiLex model of bilingual lexical naming will be extended to slowing down decline in dementia, and to language control in aphasia and dementia. A related project with Constant Therapy looks into recommending exercises in rehabilitation in a mobile app. Uli Grasemann and Chloe Chen will be the key contributors to these projects at UT. A recent Austin Next podcast described these topics and the role of AI in general.
