Title: “Human and machine learning”

Abstract: Human cognition still sets the standard we aspire to in many
areas of machine learning, including problems such as identifying causal
relationships, acquiring and using language, and  learning concepts from a
small number of examples. In these cases, human and machine learning can
establish a mutually beneficial relationship: we can use the formal tools
developed in machine learning to provide insights into human learning, and
translate those insights into new machine learning systems. I will use the
case of causal induction to illustrate the value of this approach, but also
highlight some applications in language and concept learning. I will also
argue that the same kind of mutually beneficial relationship could
potentially exist between developing data-intensive approaches to cognitive
science and making sense of large volumes of behavioral data in computer
