Jay McClelland's Rumelhart Prize Lecture and Related Events
Two other events related to the Rumelhart Prize occurred at the Cognitive Science society meeting. One was the Rumelhart Prize Symposium, organized by my former student Tim Rogers, featuring four outstanding speakers including Tim speaking about topics related to several themes I have stressed in my work: Graded activation, interactive processing, and distributed representation. The other was a special symposium featuring the first 10 Rumelhart prize winners discussing outstanding questions in cognitive science. The symposium features another clip of Rumelhart himself speaking about what the thought, in 1987, were the future issues that needed to be addressed in the Parallel Distributed Processing framework. These items can all be found on The Science Network, along with interviews of many of the Rumelhart Prize Winners and other leaders in the field of Cognitive Science.
