I think you're really going to enjoy today's show. Our guest this week is Dominique Simmons, applied research Scientist at AI tools vendor Dimensional Mechanics. Dominique brings an interesting background in cognitive psychology and psycholinguistics to her work and research in AI and, well, to this podcast. We cover the implications of cognitive psychology for neural networks and AI systems, and more.
In particular, we dig into how an understanding of human cognition impacts the development of AI models for media applications. We also discuss her research into multimodal training of AI models, and how our understanding of the human brain has influenced this work. We explore the debate around the biological plausibility of machine learning and AI models as well. It was a great conversation.
