The most important current project is the Neural Theory of Language effort in natural language understanding and learning, previously known as L0.
A new book on the NTL project is now available: From Molecule to Metaphor: A Neural Theory of Language,
MIT Press 2006. There is also a related website m2mbook.org that has news and reviews of the book and also will hopefully help further the development of a Unified Cognitive Science.
I am also active in activities to enhance the availability of IT to underserved groups. The major undertaking is the Community of Practice Environment CoPE, which aims to facilitate online group cooperation without requiring IT expertise. This is a multidisciplinary project, based at ICSI and is affiliated with the UC Berkeley CITRIS endeavor, which works on a variety of issues concerning Information Technology and Society.
A completed project is the Sather language, compiler, libraries and system. My personal work focused on the parallel extension which is called pSather.
Undergraduate Course on the "Neural Basis of Language and Thought", CS182/Cog110/Ling109
