The Talking Heads
The Talking Heads experiment raises questions in three areas of research: How do words get their meanings? Is artificial intelligence possible? How should machines interact with humans? The questions are raised through a playful but technologically highly advanced experimental setup. This website describes both the human/scientific aspects of the experiment, and the machine/technological aspects. Public Talking Heads experiments ran from 26.05.1999 to 05.11.1999, and from 21.01.2000 to 10.08.2000. The project is currently dormant, but you can still take the guided tour or explore the agent world. Some results from the second run are now online.
