Experience-Based Language Acquisition (EBLA) is an open computational framework for visual perception and grounded language acquisition. It can "watch" a series of short videos and acquire a simple language of nouns and verbs corresponding to the objects and object-object relations in those videos. Upon acquiring this protolanguage, it can perform basic scene analysis to generate descriptions of novel videos. While there have been several systems capable of learning object or event labels for videos, this is the first known system to acquire both nouns and verbs using a grounded computer vision system.
SwingSet is an Java toolkit that contains data-aware replacements for many of the standard Java Swing components. It currently includes replacements for JTextField, JTextArea, JComboBox, JCheckBox, JSlider, and JLabel. There is also an image component, a graphical record navigator, and a data grid component. All of the primary components are available as JavaBeans.
