Workshop - Grammars Everywhere: Language, music, art, perception & the legacy of Remko Scha

07Dec2017 09:00 - 16:00


Workshop at the international conference ‘SMART Animals’ at the University of Amsterdam.

Workshop description

Remko Scha (1945-2015) was professor of computational linguistics at the UvA’s Institute for Logic, Language and Computation. During his career, he made significant scientific and artistic contributions to areas as diverse as question answering, discourse analysis, the semantics of plurals, Data-Oriented Parsing, aleatoric music, algorithmic art, and theories and models of visual perception and creativity. In this workshop we celebrate these contributions with talks on current developments in many of the areas he was interested in.
