Learn about language and have your face transformed into a series of words with the Institute of Linguistics and Language Technology.
Can your face be read? Come to the stand by Institute of Linguistics and Language Technology to see this happen! They will use a computer program which changes facial features into words. It uses image understanding and language writing techniques, all of which will be explained at the stand. Come and see how computers can learn (just like we do) using artificial intelligence. If that’s not your cup of tea, there will also be linguistics games (such as the Sally/Anne task, the Stroop effect, and the Wug test) revealing things about language you never would have thought of!
