The Tale of the One Thousand Signs

Robots do not comprehend notions of time differentiation (such as past, future, imperfect), which are incredibly subtle notions that are implicit to our languages. So we try to make them formulate concepts of time differentiation and time description, to make them invent words that allow them to speak about time among themselves. The idea is to see whether, through these iterative language games, robots can begin to conceptualise time on a general level.
