On the Predictive Power of Neural Language Models for Human Real-Time Comprehension Behavior

2 Jun 2020Ethan Gotlieb WilcoxJon GauthierJennifer HuPeng QianRoger Levy

Human reading behavior is tuned to the statistics of natural language: the time it takes human subjects to read a word can be predicted from estimates of the word's probability in context. However, it remains an open question what computational architecture best characterizes the expectations deployed in real time by humans that determine the behavioral signatures of reading...
