Simulated Robot Swarm Learns Language

New Scientist is carrying a story (link) about a group of cognitive systems researchers who have simulated a batch of robots who can teach each other using elements of language. This has lead to robots who have a conceptual basis in reality for the words they learn.


Note the manipulation of human-head-shaped objects is the task they learn first.

The second thing they will learn is how to crush the human-head-shaped objects with their virtual forelimbs.
