Selected publications

I have published on a rather wide range of topics, and as such you might -just like me sometimes- struggle to see the forest from the trees. Here are some publications that are dear to me, with a little word on why I think so.

  • Steels, L. and Belpaeme, T. (2005)  Coordinating Perceptually Grounded Categories through Language. A Case Study for Colour. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 28(4):469-489.
    My most cited article, in which we show how colour categories are learnt from interacting with others. This provides an alternative to the view that colour categories are innate. It’s a lovely win for computational modeling: we used agent-based modelling to simulate iteratively  interacting individuals, and show how repeated negotiating about colour categories leaves a population with a shared language and shared concepts.
  • Belpaeme, T., Baxter, P., Read, R., Wood, R., Cuayáhuitl, H., Kiefer, B., Racioppa, S., Kruijff-Korbayová, I., Athanasopoulos, G., Enescu, V., Looije, R., Neerincx, M., Demiris, Y., Ros-Espinoza, R., Beck, A., Cañamero, L., Hiolle, A., Lewis, M., Baroni, I., Nalin, M., Cosi, P., Paci, G., Tesser, F., Sommavilla, G. & Humbert, R. (2012) Multimodal Child-Robot Interaction: Building Social Bonds. Journal of Human-Robot Interaction, 1(2), 33-53.
    An ambitious position paper on how we can use social humanoid robots to build social bonds with children, and how this can be used to support children through a challenging time in hospital, with a specific focus on children diagnosed with diabetes. This paper is one of the first discussing the potential of social robots for medical care. The paper provides an overview of the work planned in the ALIZ-E project.
  • Morse, A., F., Benitez, V. L., Belpaeme, T., Cangelosi, A., and Smith, L. B. (2015). Posture Affects How Robots and Infants Map Words to Objects. PloS one, 10(3), e0116012.
    In this paper we write about a model of word-meaning acquisition in young children in which body posture is important: changes in body posture during learning disrupt the association between words and their meaning. The paper is unique as it showed how a computational model implemented on a humanoid robot helped us form and confirm a theory on language acquisition in humans.
