Natural Language Does Not Emerge ‘Naturally’ in Multi-Agent Dialog
Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP)
In this paper, using a Task & Talk reference game between two agents as a testbed, we present a sequence of ‘negative’ results culminating in a ‘positive’ one – showing that while most agent-invented languages are effective (i.e. achieve near-perfect task rewards), they are decidedly not interpretable or compositional.
