The research team of Laura Graesser, Kyunghyun Cho, and Douwe Kiela used the latest in artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to create a computational framework “in which agents equipped with communication capabilities simultaneously play a series of referential games, to study the properties of natural language.” According to the team, theirs is a novel framework because they used the latest-generation deep reinforcement learning that could process rich sensory input.
Freudian theorists claim that conscious beliefs and desires ultimately play a pretty small role in explaining why people do what they do, and that the real drivers of human behavior are subconscious forces. When we look at human behavior via the unified system, three key processes frame our understanding.
While you want to be heard, understood, and respected—and these are very important for maintaining family balance and harmony—the even bigger task at hand is to show your child what it feels and looks like to be consistent, balanced, and fundamentally respectful and relatable over time.
