I am Michael Spranger - a researcher at Sony Computer Science Laboratories Inc. based in Tokyo, Japan. My main focus is to build creative, intelligent systems that act autonomously in the real world, and learn and evolve communication systems similar in complexity to human language.

My PhD thesis (ECCAI honorable mention award) has recently been published as an open access book.

You can find out more about me on Google Scholar, LinkedIn, ResearchGate, Frontiers in Robotics and AI, ORCID and Sony Computer Science Laboratories Inc.

I do a lot of reviewing for journals, e.g. ALife, Adaptive Behavior, International Journal of Social Robotics, Constructions and Frames, Frontiers in Robotics and AI, IEEE TCDS and conferences such as CogSci, IROS, IJCAI, ECAL, ICDL-EPIROB, Evolang etc. In some cases, e.g. CogSci 2017, I am part of the meta-review process.
