2020 arXiv   pre-print
The ability to cooperate through language is a defining feature of humans. As the perceptual, motory and planning capabilities of deep artificial networks increase, researchers are studying whether they also can develop a shared language to interact. From a scientific perspective, understanding the conditions under which language evolves in communities of deep agents and its emergent features can shed light on human language evolution. From an applied perspective, endowing deep networks with
