The Talking Heads experiment currently being conducted at Sony CSL Paris implements a network of mobile cognitive agents. Each node consists of a workstation with two cameras through which the agents can perceive the world. When embodied on a node, agents construct classifications of what they 'see' through the cameras and interact to develop a simple language for communicating their representations to each other. Agents travel between nodes via the Internet, using standard communications protocols.

Keywords: teleportation, multi-agent systems, agents, Talking Heads
