In the CSLI program, interns will work closely with a faculty, postdoc, or grad student mentor on an original cognitive science research project. They will gain experience developing the project, collecting data, and analyzing the results. In addition to their individual projects, interns will attend a weekly seminar with such topics as reading a scientific paper, introduction to the R data analysis platform, statistics and visualization, and presentation skills. The program will culminate with each intern presenting their work to an interdisciplinary audience.

The topical focus of the program will be on language, learning, computation, and cognition, with an emphasis on giving students the technical skills they need to complete an independent project. Mentors will be from cognitive science departments across Stanford including Michael Bernstein (Computer Science), Michael Frank (Psychology), Noah Goodman (Psychology), Dan Lassiter (Linguistics), Chris Potts (Linguistics), and Meghan Sumner (Linguistics).
