Having background in physics, cognitive science and complex systems, Dániel Czégel's main research interest is to quantitatively understand high-level (collective) human cognitive processes. These include statistical modeling of diachronic semantics and human text generation, studying the possible connections between neural darwinism, bayesian learning theories and statistical physics, and the theoretical background of those such as information theory and network science. In his free time, he loves to travel and to play basketball.

Dániel Czégel: The laws of semantics
Date: 23 November 2016 at 10.00-11.30
Venue: Sgraffito-House Jurisics sq. 7. (iASK Library)
Strict syntactic rules that govern the local structure of language streams are familiar to everyone. Interestingly, similar strict quantitative laws exist describing the large-scale statistical organization of texts. In this talk I introduce these laws along with their possible origins rooted in cognitive or cultural processes.
