Cognitive models of child word learning in general, and cross-situational models in particular, characterize the learner as a passive observer. But children are curious and actively participate in verbal and non-verbal communication, and often introduce new topics which parents are likely to follow up (Bloom et al., 1996). We investigate the potent...

... novelty favours the most unknown objects, plasticity selects on how much the learner expects to learn from a given input word, and curiosity is the product of those two. Table 1 shows model accuracy in each condition on held-out test data. Models trained with input selection according to curiosity ultimately attain the highest accuracy scores for both comprehension and production. ...
