Launched Missions

  • The Language Mission broadly aims to understand the relationship between language and human intelligence. Scientific goals include understanding how humans and machine learning models interpret and generate language and determining the role of language in the acquisition, representation, and use of knowledge across various domains of cognition. Engineering goals include building AI systems that learn language from human-scale datasets and understand language with human-like robustness and flexibility.
  • This research mission broadly aims to understand how children grasp new concepts from few examples, how children build upon layers of concepts to reach an understanding of the world and have the flexibility to solve an unbounded range of problems. Can we build AI that starts like a baby and learns like a child?
  • This research mission broadly addresses how we perceive the world around us and integrate this information to plan and complete tasks. Scientific goals include research into how perception, planning, and action interface, how we learn efficiently from small data sets and the creation of behavioral benchmark tasks.
