An ExtremeTech online article of May 17 by Alan Henry reports that a group
of Australian researchers have managed to teach robots how to invent and
use spoken language. The goal of the research is to understand how language
evolves and develops naturally over time.

The robots or LingoDroids are equipped with microphones, speakers, cameras,
range finders, and sonar that they use to map their surroundings and speak
to one another.
