I am pleased to announce you the publication of my book :
Oudeyer, P-Y. (2006) Self-Organization in the Evolution of Speech
<http://www.csl.sony.fr/%7Epy/book.htm>, Studies in the Evolution of
Language, Oxford University Press. (Translation by James R. Hurford).
Keywords: self-organization, cultural and biological evolution,
phonetics, sensori-motor coupling, neural networks, agent-based modeling
This book studies the interactions between self-organization and natural
selection in the origins of combinatorial speech sounds. In particular,
it aims to show how concepts coming from complex systems sciences and
how computational modeling tools involving neural networks and agents
can help formulate new theories about the origins of culturally shared
speech codes. It also includes detailed discussions about the
epistemological foundations of computational modeling in human sciences.
