MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn. Deb Roy studies how children learn language, and designs machines that learn to communicate in human-like ways. On sabbatical from MIT Media Lab, he's working with the AI company Bluefin Labs. A quiz, thought provoking question, and links for further study are provided to create a lesson around the 20-minute video. Educators may use the platform to easily "Flip" or create their own lesson for use with their students of any age or level.

We are a group of volunteer CSD scientists and clinicians passionate about bridging the gap between scientific research and clinical practice.

While there are many ways to increase research access and awareness, our 2020–2021 goal centers squarely on self-archiving and "green" open access options.

WHY? Our field relies on high-quality, peer-reviewed research to support evidence-based practice. Yet, much of our work remains inaccessible to practitioners, researchers, and people in the community who are not affiliated with universities or national organizations.

By teaching CSD scientists how to self-archive, and providing them with the support needed to make it happen, we can empower our colleagues to make research accessibility the norm in our field. Because when free, legal versions of our field's best research is made available to the public, it can improve the sustainable value of all of our work.

A Grammar of Moloko
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This grammar provides the first comprehensive grammatical description of Moloko, a Chadic language spoken by about 10,000 speakers in northern Cameroon. The grammar was developed from hours and years that the authors spent at friends’ houses hearing and recording stories, hours spent listening to the tapes and transcribing the stories, then translating them and studying the language through them. Time was spent together and with others speaking the language and talking about it, translating resources and talking to Moloko people about them. Grammar and phonology discoveries were made in the office, in the fields while working, and at gatherings. In the process, the four authors have become more and more passionate about the Moloko language and are eager to share their knowledge about it with others.
