Thanks to the simplicity of its syntax, the jingulu allows you to reduce computational costs and easily change its context of use to transfer AI between different domains.
An article Scientist published in the journal Frontiers in Physics describes some characteristics of the Jingulu language of the Jingili people, an aboriginal community in northern Australia, that allow it to be translated into complex artificial intelligence commands (AI).
The study, led by Professor Hussein Abbass of the University of New South Wales, Canberra, was based on “swarm systems” or “artificial ant systems”. Under this technology, groups of robots or other artificial intelligence agents collaborate to solve very complex problems or perform tasks.
Previously, the researcher had studied systems based on gestures, direct commands and even music, but all of them faced difficulties, as they are linguistically richer or did not fit the calculations used by artificial intelligence to guide and control.
Everything changed one day, when the teacher, out of curiosity, looked for studies on syntax, the order and relationship of the words of the Australian Aboriginal languages and among them the jingulu appeared.
In collaboration with Professor Eleni Petraki, expert in linguistics, and Dr. Robert Hunjet, the team created JSwarm, a jingulu inspired language that can be used in any r situation where communication between humans and a large number of AI agents is necessary.
The jingulu is unique, even among aboriginal languages. Having only three verbs come, go and do it effectively communicates spatial movements. “For us, jingulu is a dream come true,” stated Abbass.
Thanks to its simple syntax, jingulu allows you to reduce computational costs and change its context of use with ease to transfer AI between different domains. It is also a human language that anyone can understand.
Jingulu is also valuable because it is a language that was born and is used in Australia to support research and innovation in the country. Abbass noted. “Aboriginal people have a long history of contributing to the benefit of Australia,” he added.
During World War II, Aboriginal languages were used in secret communications. “Today we are discovering that the richness of Aboriginal languages and cultures could hold the secret of the interaction between humans and artificial intelligence,” concluded Abbass.
