Research

My research is within Artificial Intelligence and has the following main aspects:

  1. the processing of FIGURATIVE UTTERANCES (metaphoric, metonymic, hyperbolic, ironic, ...)

  2. the nature of (SELF-)CONSCIOUSNESS, and how to achieve it in artefacts.

On the first of these, see the separate ATT-Meta project and Gen-Meta project pages.


Selected Publications


Metaphor-of-Mind Databank

I have been building a databank of examples of metaphors of mind in real text and speech.
This databank is a product of the ATT-Meta project.


Opportunities for Projects: PhD, MSc and Undergraduate

I can offer several types of postgraduate project, if they closely match my particular interests in Artificial Intelligence / Cognitive Science .
