    We conducted a naturalistic study in which German mothers interacted with their three-month-old infants during diaper changing as an everyday activity. Following the idea that “acoustic packaging” educates infants' attention, we explored whether the verbal input to the infants in natural interactions simultaneously contains action information. Applying a microanalysis method, we firs... View full abstract»

    Infants are able to adaptively associate auditory stimuli with visual stimuli even in their first year of life, as demonstrated by multimodal habituation studies. Different from language acquisition during later developmental stages, this adaptive learning in young infants is temporary and still very much stimulus-driven. Hence, temporal aspects of environmental and social factors figure crucially... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the relationship between embodied interaction and symbolic communication. We report about an experiment in which simulated autonomous robotic agents, whose control systems were evolved through an artificial evolutionary process, use abstract communication signals to coordinate their behavior in a context independent way. This use of signals includes some fundamental aspects... View full abstract»

    The current study addressed the degree to which maternal speech and action are synchronous in interactions with infants. English-speaking mothers demonstrated the function of two toys, stacking rings and nesting cups to younger infants (6-9.5 months) and older infants (9.5-13 months). Action and speech units were identified, and speech units were coded as being ongoing action descriptions or nonac... View full abstract»

  • Are We There Yet? Grounding Temporal Concepts in Shared Journeys

    An understanding of time and temporal concepts is critical for interacting with the world and with other agents in the world. What does a robot need to know to refer to the temporal aspects of events-could a robot gain a grounded understanding of “a long journey,” or “soon?” Cognitive maps constructed by individual agents from their own journey experiences have been use...

  • An Experiment on Behavior Generalization and the Emergence of Linguistic Compositionality in Evolving Robots

    Populations of simulated agents controlled by dynamical neural networks are trained by artificial evolution to access linguistic instructions and to execute them by indicating, touching, or moving specific target objects. During training the agent experiences only a subset of all object/action pairs. During postevaluation, some of the successful agents proved to be able to access and execute also ...
