What are the origins of language?

How did language evolve? This question is among the great unsolved mysteries. Other big questions about our nature as human beings and our place in the universe have at least tentative approaches to answers. Questions like where the universe came from, how life evolved, how human beings evolved as a species... most people can frame at least a rough response. They have a grip on these questions. The question of the origin of language - that capacity perhaps most characteristic of our species - remains mysterious. This is a fundamental scientific challenge.

Our vision

We investigate ways in which artificial agents can self-organize languages with natural-language like properties and how meaning can co-evolve with language. Our research is based on the hypothesis that language is a complex adaptive system that emerges through adaptive interactions between agents and continues to evolve in order to remain adapted to the needs and capabilities of the agents. We explore this hypothesis by implementing the full cycle of speaker and hearer as they play situated language games and observing the characteristics of the languages that emerge.
