The birth of a word

Deb Roy at USI

Deb Roy, MIT researcher, wanted to understand how his infant son learned language. To do so, he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son’s life. He then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch “gaaaa” slowly turn into “water.” The result is an astonishing and data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn. Deb Roy’s session will present the conclusions of his research.
