Speaker: Marie-Lou Barnaud, GIPSA-lab Speech and Cognition, Grenoble, France.
 
Title: Bayesian modeling of the joint development of perception, action and phonology

Abstract: Both auditory and motor components intervene in speech perception as well as in speech production. However, their specific role in the speech communication process stays under debate. In this talk, I will present a Bayesian model of speech communication, named COSMO, enabling to study the joint development of perception, action and phonology. After describing the overall model, I will focus on the learning process. I will first show how specific differences between sensory, sensory-motor and motor processes can affect and shape the respective roles of auditory and motor representations in speech perception. Secondly, I will expose three principles facilitating exploration during sensory-motor learning. Then, I will address some results concerning developmental variability likely to result in the observation of idiosyncrasies. Some implications regarding hierarchies in sensory-motor and phonological structures and brain implementations will also be discussed. Finally, I will describe some prospects for future work.
