Markus Waibel writes, "In the new episode of [EPFL podcast] Talking Robots we interview Luc Steels on the complex topic of language evolution. Luc Steels is professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Brussels (VUB) and director of the Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris. He talks about his famous Talking Heads experiment, the cognitive and genetic basis for language, and the importance of embodiment and robot experiments for understanding the evolution of communication and language."
