Cognitive psychologist at @USNRL, but I do a bit of modeling on the side. Flouting the laws of symbolic logic on the reg. He/him.
Joey went to the store and bought a pack of chips. A bottle of water costs $3.00, a pack of chips costs $1.00 and a pack of gum costs $2.00. How much did he spend in total?
Before giving up on Twitter, check out our recent finding 🔥 LLMs are *not* zero-shot communicators!
We show a limitation of #LLMs in interpreting language given the context of shared experience of the world, a ubiquitous part of communication ⬇️🧵
Susan Trickett, a researcher with sustained contributions to the advancement of Cognitive Science, and in particular, to the @CogSci_Soc, passed away on August 8, 2022.
In this tribute, members of our community offer remembrances in celebration of Susan.
Big thanks to @ErikBrockbank for joining the lab today! Fun discussion on how explanations guide the way people generate (but not evaluate) hypotheses.
You can check out his Cognition paper on the topic here:
Psychologists of twitter! 📣Anybody interested in forming (or already is forming) a symposium about racism and/or discrimination from an intersectional perspective for #ICPS2023? If so, DM me!👀👀 I'm trynna go to Brussels, y'all!
Now accepted at NeurIPS22. We have added substantial new results to our paper on prompting LLMs with explanations for textual reasoning for the camera ready.
In addition to davinci-001, we added experiments on three more LLMs (OPT, davinci, davinci-002). https://twitter.com/xiye_nlp/status/1523690158784016384
Can GPT-3 generate reliable explanations for textual reasoning tasks? Not really❌.
Check out our (with @gregd_nlp) new preprint “The Unreliability of Explanations of Few-Shot In-Context Learning”: https://arxiv.org/pdf/2205.03401.pdf [1/6]
hi all! excited to launch our new website🌈http://www.queerpsychneuro.com
Building a set of useful links, please send along info helpful to #queerinstem folks or if your psych/neuro conference or university has an #lgbtqia group
#Slack link available and email blasts if not on slack!
New JEP:Gen paper with Daniella Kupor that we're really proud of! We show how adding *more* probability information about the causes of a risk actually makes people think the risk is *less* likely 🧵
Next semester I will be helping a blind student learn intro statistics. Accessibility services has been creating 100s of images of tables and figures in tactile form. I got a sneak peek the other day, and they're beautiful 😍. Here's an original plot by me and the tactile version
Excited that this is now out @PsychScience! See how we (@shreya_wadhwa9 & @michaelfbonner) use a visual illusion of spatial scale ("tilt-shift") to reveal a powerful cause of distortions in scene memory: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/09567976221093575 (see 🧵👇 for the non-paywalled preprint) https://twitter.com/AlonHafri/status/1493980830527635456
Memory is not like a camera; it often fills in extra visual details. In a new paper @PsychScience, we (@shreya_wadhwa9 & @michaelfbonner) use "tilt-shift" to explore what causes distortions in scene memory—and find that spatial scale plays a crucial role! http://psyarxiv.com/hy3qs
