Categorization in artificial agents: Guidance on empirical research?

Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic researchpeer-review


By comparing mechanisms in nativism, empiricism, and culturalism, the target article by Steels & Belpaeme (S&B) emphasizes the influence of communicational constraint on sharing color categories. Our commentary suggests deeper considerations of some of their claims, and discusses some modifications that may help in the study of communicational constraints in both humans and robots.
