Lingodroids : studies in spatial cognition and language
Schulz, Ruth, Glover, Arren, Milford, Michael, Wyeth, Gordon, & Wiles, Janet (2011) Lingodroids : studies in spatial cognition and language. In Zheng, Y.F. & Zhang, J. (Eds.) Proceedings of the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, IEEE, Shanghai International Convention Center, China, pp. 178-183.
The Lingodroids are a pair of mobile robots that evolve a language for places and relationships between places (based on distance and direction). Each robot in these studies has its own understanding of the layout of the world, based on its unique experiences and exploration of the environment. Despite having different internal representations of the world, the robots are able to develop a common lexicon for places, and then use simple sentences to explain and understand relationships between places even places that they could not physically experience, such as areas behind closed doors. By learning the language, the robots are able to develop representations for places that are inaccessible to them, and later, when the doors are opened, use those representations to perform goal-directed behavior.
