Dear All,
*Apologies for cross-posting*
We are pleased to announce an opportunity for a funded Ph.D. studentship
about (*Computational Modelling of Language Compositionality through
Human-Robot Interaction*) at the Center for Robotics and Neural Systems
(CRNS) at Plymouth University, UK. The closing date for applications is *12
noon on 04 May 2022* *(funding conditions for the international (non-home
fees / non-UK-based) students are available in the link below)*.

This exciting project tries to investigate language compositionality (*from
the word to sentence levels*) through human-robot interaction with a view
to making a robot able to understand human instructions. This requires
*inferring
the* *latent syntactic structure* of language through perceptual
information (e.g., visual and/or haptic perception) and defining its
mechanism of compositional development. This project will set the basis for
learning the meaning of words and their syntactic categories (e.g., nouns,
verbs) through perception in the surroundings, and learning language
grammar - through an unsupervised approach - so as to understand phrases
and sentences (*more details and research questions are available in the
link below*).
More details *about the topic*, *how to apply*, *eligibility criteria for
home students / international students*, *and* *funding conditions* are
available at:
