The season of mists, mellow fruitfulness and academic upheaval is upon us. Freshers’ Week is almost over, so I’m gearing up for the final course leaders’ induction talk tomorrow. Meanwhile, some PhD students are leaving and others are joining. I said goodbye to Albert this morning, who has finished his corrections and is now heading back to Hong Kong (and thence to Japan for a job with NTT Research). Very cool work on collective semantics which has garnered quite a bit of interest from the community, most recently this piece in the Communications of the ACM.
I have a new shared student courtesy of the EnAKTing project; this is the spiritual successor to the AKT. All very exciting.
