Abstract:Many computer simulations try to explain language evolution with socially oriented scenarios in multi-agent systems by applying methods such as genetic algorithms and neural networks. In this paper a new approach based on modifications to the classic Ant Colony Optimization algorithm is proposed. Ants are provided with a Fuzzy Grammar and the ability to embed a message in the pheromone. By fuzzifying the grammar, ants are able to modify the degree of membership of the production rules to gradually adopt a fore… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
