<> This project investigates a novel approach to building computer systems that can recognize visual situations;

the approach explored integrates two previously-studied approaches: brain-inspired neural networks for lower-lever

vision and cognitive-level models of concepts and analogy-making.

<> Project is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

<> Advisor: Melanie Mitchell , Computer Science, Portland State University.

<> Content/curriculum creation for large-scale courses for http://www.complexityexplorer.org,

a web-based repository of educational materials related to complex systems science.

<>Advisor: Melanie Mitchell, Computer Science, Portland State University.
