If software is generally defined as executable formal instructions, logical scores, then the concept of software is by no means limited to formal instructions for computers. The first, English-language notation of the Dadaist poem qualifies as software just as much as the three notations in the Perl programming language - Florian Cramer. If any algorithm can be executed mentally, as it was common before computers were invented, then of course software can exist and run without hardware - Florian Cramer.
As clinicians, can we predict effective interventions? While traditional approaches focus on better characterizations of inputs and outcomes, here at the Language and Cognition Laboratory (LCL) we take on these challenges through the eyes of learners. What representations do children recruit when interpreting language? How do these computations change over time? University of Maryland, College Park. Dept of Hearing and Speech Sciences.
