Most approaches to semantics in computational linguistics represent meaning in terms of words or abstract symbols. Grounded-language research bases the meaning of natural language on perception and/or action in the (real or virtual) world. Machine learning has become the most effective approach to constructing natural-language systems; however, current methods require a great deal of laboriously annotated training data. Ideally, a computer would be able to acquire language like a child, by being exposed to language in the context of a relevant but ambiguous environment, thereby grounding its learning in perception and action. We will review recent research in grounded language learning and discuss future directions.
