Our research aims to provide a means for independent entities to autonomously develop a set of shared conventions which will allow them to communicate with each other. The communication system thus developed needs to be e cient, robust, learnable and tolerant of noise occurring at all stages in the communication process. This paper proposes a system based on repeated interactions, coupled with learning procedures that allows shared communication systems to be developed even in the presence of…

Spatially Distributed Naming Games

TLDR
The paper investigates the dynamical properties of spatially distributed naming games and shows that diversity can be shown to arise, and changes, in population contact lead to language changes.

Net-mobile embodied agents

The Talking Heads experiment currently being conducted at Sony CSL Paris implements a network of mobile cognitive agents. Each node of the network consists of a workstation with two digital cameras

evolution of case grammar

TLDR
These experiments demonstrate that case systems may emerge because they have a selective advantage for communication: they reduce the cognitive effort that listeners need for semantic interpretation, while at the same time limiting the cognitive resources required for doing so.

Babel: A Testbed for Research in Origins of Language

TLDR
An open-ended, extensible testbed called Babel is implemented which allows rapid construction of experiments and flexible visualization of results, and the mechanisms and processes involved in language emergence and adaptation are looked at.
