In this paper, we explore the emergence of acoustic categories in sensor arrays. We describe a series experiments on the automatic categorization of species and individual birds using self-organizing maps. Experimental results showed that meaningful acoustic categories can arise as self-organizing processes in sensor arrays. In addition, we discuss how distributed categorization could be used for the emergence of symbolic communication in these platforms.
