Solving the Puzzle of Language
When Edward (Ted) Gibson (DC’91) came to Carnegie Mellon University in 1986 to pursue a Ph.D. in computational linguistics, he saw language as a puzzle to be solved.
Fast-forward to today: Gibson is still putting the pieces together and making fascinating discoveries. And the world has taken notice. His research was recently featured in “Nature’s Numbers,” a BBC Discovery documentary series that examines the origins of mathematical understanding in humans.
