Abstract: The entry into symbolic communication through language, gesture or visual signs is one of the key moments in the mental and social development of infants. It is the point from which they start to have a much better social interaction with their parents, other children and adults, and can begin to observe the massive achievements of cultural accumulation. The question addressed in this paper is how developing robots could autonomously make this important transition in their mental development. Based on observat… Show more

“…Recent work by Rossano and colleagues (Halina, Rossano & Tomasello, 2013;Rossano, under review) has not only shown evidence for this process in the gestural development of young bonobos, but also shown how fast this process can be, contrary to general expectations (as fast as 2 or 3 weeks, according to Rossano, under review). Arbib and colleagues have further shown that this process is computationally plausible once dyadic brain modeling and mirror neurons are taken into account (Arbib et al, 2014) and roboticists have shown that it is easier for robots to converge on a shared communicative repertoire by relying on ontogenetic ritualization than on imitation (Spranger & Steels, 2014).…”

“…To this end, experiments on human-robot interaction conducted by (Gross and Krenn, 2016) have illustrated the way in which factors such as gaze and gesture are crucial features of early-stage linguistic interactions, and we suggest that a mechanism for representing these elements of communication is an important consideration in modelling grounded language learning. Likewise with a focus on robotic applications, Spranger and Steels (2014) have explored the way that the ontogentic ritualisation inherent in the phenotype of a community of language users plays an important role in human language learning.…”

“…Many researchers have argued that gestural signs must have been the first stage in the origins of symbolic communication in our species as well [14], partly because closely related species, in particular chimpanzees and bonobos, also develop gestural signs among close kin [15]. Various agent-based models have tried to emulate this stage, mostly based on operationalizing ontogenetic ritualization [16][17][18]. (ii) From sounds to words.…”
