Vogt, P. and Haasdijk, E. (2007) Social learning of skills and language In Acerbi, A., Marocco, D. and Vogt, P. (Eds.) Proceedings of Int. Workshop on Social learning in embodied agents.
Abstract In this paper, we explore how human-like social learning can be implemented in artificial life models. We focus on the social learning of both skills and language and we illustrate our considerations and design issues based on our developments in the NEW TIES project. We conclude that our assumptions regarding autonomy, embodiment and situatedness impose many limitations and, consequently require difficult design choices.
