Submission Agents learning to talk to each other

bbc writes: "When programs talk to each other, they need to share a common language before they can initiate the conversation. PhD student Jurriaan van Diggelen developed a system called Anemone that will let agents learn each other's languages during the conversation. The problems that he foresees for such a system are words that an agent doesn't understand, and concepts that an agent doesn't understand.

Van Diggelen will defend his thesis called Achieving Semantic Interoperability in Multi-Agent Systems on March 21 in Utrecht."
