2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
virtual sound propagation.  ...  In this paper, we will present a method for generating conversations between human-like agents and this will be done by proposing specific parameters for inter-agents messages with an approximation of  ...  We will also demonstrate in this paper how to handle the sound propagation in an approximated way, without focusing on accurate 3D rendering of spatial sound.  ...

Semantic interpretation of noun compounds using verbal and other paraphrases

Preslav I. Nakov, Marti A. Hearst
2013 ACM Transactions on Speech and Language Processing  
We study the utility of using such paraphrasing verbs, with associated weights, to build a representation of the semantics of a noun compound, e.g., malaria mosquito can be represented as follows: carry  ...  We also explore the potential of using multiple paraphrasing verbs as features for predicting abstract semantic relations such as CAUSE, and we demonstrate that using explicit paraphrases can help improve  ...  The EU 's budget , as an economic policy 's instrument , amounts to 1.25 % of European GDP .

Robot Communication Via Motion: A Study on Modalities for Robot-to-Human Communication in the Field

Michael Fulton, Chelsey Edge, Junaed Sattar
2022 ACM Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction (THRI)  
We perform two pilot studies to guide our development of the system, then evaluate it alongside an audio communication system, an LCD display, and a system of blinking LEDs.  ...  Second, we present results from our development of this motion system, showing that it is easier to learn than a baseline blinking LED system, viable for use underwater, aerial, and terrestrial field robots  ...  contributions to this work, in helping to prepare or administer studies, edit and analyze video, and general advice/suggestions.  ...

Manga vision: cultural and communicative perspectives

Bounthavy Suvilay
2017 Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics  
Acknowledgements Thanks to Dr Lewis Mayo for feedback on this chapter.  ...  Ekphrasis opens the door to inter-media translations and this can only propagate broader understandings of works, not narrower ones.  ...  Silent Language Sound is an integral element of manga, but so is silence. Somewhere between 60 per cent and 90 per cent of human communication, it is thought, is expressed non-verbally (cf.  ...

The Impact of Technological Developments on the Contextual Imperatives of Performance in the Delivery of Verbal Folklore

Francis Mowang Ganyi Francis Mowang Ganyi
2013 IOSR Journal of Humanities and Social Science  
Using the Bakor society as an example therefore, this paper stresses the need for an emphasis on contextual delivery of folk materials that root for tradition rather than those that emphasize blind modernization  ...  The artists' role should therefore be to propagate and portray these cherished values rather than allow for the bastardization of culture through profuse responses to technological demands that impact  ...  Esigie sent some envoys to Portugal in 1540. Their presence in Portugal was attested to by de Barros, though he could not really account for their actual mission (Ryder, 1969; 72).  ...

Environmental constraints shaping constituent order in emerging communication systems: Structural iconicity, interactive alignment and conventionalization

Peer Christensen, Riccardo Fusaroli, Kristian Tylén
2016 Cognition  
The second experiment shows that participants' choice of constituent order is also reliably influenced by social-interactional forces of interactive alignment, that is, the tendency to re-use an interlocutor's  ...  Together, our results demonstrate that constituent order in emerging gestural communication systems is shaped and stabilized in response to multiple external environmental and social factors: structural  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Nicolas Fay for constructive and insightful feedback in early phases of this research project and Karen Nissen Schriver, Ditte Sofie Hylander Poulsen, Mette  ...

A New Approach to Creation of an Artificial Intellect and Method of its Implementation

Wladimir Stalski
2021 Journal of Artificial General Intelligence  
In accordance with the proposed new approach, the development of an artificial intellect is achieved by teaching a natural language to an ARb, and by its utilization for communication with ARbs and humans  ...  Agent robots (ARbs) propagate and their population evolves; that is ARbs develop cognitively from generation to generation.  ...  Language is not only a verbal communication but is also an instrument of thinking and is an instrument of cognition. The automaton has speech.  ...

The Emergence of Propositions from the Co-ordination of Talk and Action in a Shared World

Brian Hazlehurst, Edwin Hutchins
1998 Language and Cognitive Processes  
We rst describe a process in which agents coordinating their actions and verbal productions with each other in a shared world leads to the development of propositional structures.  ...  We present a connectionist model that demonstrates how propositional structure can emerge from the interactions among the members of a community of simple cognitive agents.  ...  This system is made possible by the development of co-ordination between structure that is internal to an agent and the shared external structure created in situated language use.  ...

Auto-organization and Emergence of Shared Language Structure [chapter]

Edwin Hutchins, Brian Hazlehurst
2002 Simulating the Evolution of Language  
Grammar refers to properties of language involving sequences of lexical forms.  ...  Meanings are generally taken to be mental structures which, on the one hand, shape agents' interactions with a world of objects and, on the other hand, also shape agents' interactions with forms.  ...  A primary goal of these simulations is to demonstrate that learning devices employed in the service of inter-agent communication can produce the specific type of mappings characteristic of language.  ...

The Information in Emotion Communication [article]

Alison Duncan Kerr, Kevin Scharp
2020 arXiv   pre-print
How much information is transmitted when animals use emotions to communicate? It is clear that emotions are used as communication systems in humans and other species.  ...  One important application of the information theory of emotion communication is that it permits the development of emotion security systems for social networks to guard against the widespread emotion manipulation  ...  Thank you to our families for their unwavering support. And, to each other.  ...
