Oudeyer, Pierre-yves The Epigenesis of syllable Systems : a computational model. Proceedings of ORAGE 2001, Orality and Gestuality conference, Aix-en-Provence, France,, 2001

Sony CSL authors: Pierre-Yves Oudeyer

Abstract

A computational model of the origins of syllables systems is presented : a society of robotic agents endowed with realistic motor, perceptual and cognitive apparati is shown to build from scratch shared syllable systems in a decentralized manner. Furthermore, these systems share many structural properties with those of human languages

Keywords: phonology, origins of language, multi-agent simulation, universal tendencies, imitation
