On simulating the evolution of communication

  title={On simulating the evolution of communication},
  author={Jason Noble and Dave Cliff},
The prospects for modelling the evolution of communication are considered, including the problem of intentional explanation, and the possibility of grounding simulation work in theoretical biology. The seminal work of MacLennan and Burghardt [16] on the evolution of cooperative communication is described, and their experiment replicated. Our results were broadly similar, in that evolved communication was observed, but specific differences are discussed. MacLennan and Burghardt’s work is… CONTINUE READING
