Cross-Situational Learning: A Mathematical Approach
Abstract. We present a mathematical model of cross-situational learning, in which we quantify the learnability of words and vocabularies. We find that high levels of uncertainty ar...

Evolving Distributed Representations for Language with Self-Organizing Maps
We present a neural-competitive learning model of language evolution in which several symbol sequences compete to signify a given propositional meaning. Both symbol sequences and p...
