Artificial Language Evolution on Autonomous Robots (ALEAR)

Start: 
February 2008
End: 
January 2011
Funding: 
EU-STREPS

ALEAR is a tightly focused project in which the emergence and evolution of language is studied within a "whole systems approach". This means that we model the complete chain going from robotic embodiment and sensori-motor processing to conceptualization and language. Each project partner brings in specific know-how and expertise in order to achieve these integrated experiments. ALEAR has chosen three specific domains which will be investigated: space, tense-aspect, and event structure.

Project Partners

  • Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany
  • Sony Computer Science Laboratory Paris, France
  • Universität Osnabrück, Germany
  • Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain
  • University Alexandru Ioan Cuza of Iasi, Romania
