Online Learning Mechanisms for Bayesian Models of Word Segmentation


In recent years, Bayesian models have become increasingly popular as a way of understanding human cognition. Ideal learner Bayesian models assume that cognition can be usefully understood as optimal behavior under uncertainty, a hypothesis that has been supported by a number of modeling studies across various domains (e.g., Griffiths and Tenenbaum… (More)
