ALEAR robots create their own language

    Information on Myon Cyclops robots first appeared in 2010. These robots were created by the efforts of developers from the University of Humbolt, Germany. The main goal set by humanoid robots is the creation of a synthetic language, the development of some lexical techniques of interest to scientists around the world. Now the project (its name is ALEAR) has finally entered the active stage, and robots, if I may say so, create their own language.

    According to scientists, the best way to create a synthetic language is to use the experience of our ancestors (in the sense in which scientists understand this experience). Robots come up with words that denote their own actions, denote objects around and all sorts of events. All this is like a game in which a participant, player, and observer interact.

    The "words" that robots invent are a random collection of sounds. As mentioned above, these words should indicate certain actions, objects or events. Then such a word is communicated to the observer, guessing what the new word means. As soon as the partner correctly guesses the meaning of the word, it enters the dictionary of the robot. In the future, this word will be used to create all kinds of grammatical constructions.

    If the project becomes successful, not only robots will be able to communicate with each other, teaching partners new words. People will also be able to train robots in their own words, and the problem of human-machine communication will be solved (and the Turing test is finally passed).
