Facebook shuts down chatbot experiment after AIs spontaneously develop their own language

Two Facebook AI bots started conversing in their own language, researchers decided to shut off the project

Facebook shuts down AI program after bots start to communicate in their own language

Facebook AI researchers were forced to disable a pair of artificial intelligence chatbots when they discovered that the two had created their own language, shutting out their human operators.

Relax, there is no rogue artificial intelligence system shut down by Facebook because it was trying to avoid communicating with humans. The researchers on the project reportedly shut down the A.I. once they realized they could no longer understand its language. The A.I. programs could have developed a more efficient language with which to communicate.

The bots were attempting to imitate human speech when they developed their own machine language spontaneously - at which point Facebook chose to shut them down.

Not being offered any incentive to carry out their conversations in English like a normal person would do, the AI bots started creating a shorthand/dialect of the English language to improve their efficiency at negotiations.

The seemingly weird conversation between the two came about when Facebook challenged the chatbots to negotiate with each other on the trade of hats, balls and books, each of which was given a certain value. Initially the AI agents used English to converse with each other but they later created a new language that only AI systems could understand, thus, defying their objective.

At one point, Alice said "balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me" to which Bob responded with: "i i can i i i everything else". Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me toBob: you i i i i i everything else. When negotiating about how to split items such as books, cowboy hats and basketballs, the agents "drifted" from standard English with their own codewords.

"There was no reward to sticking to English language", Facebook researcher Dhruv Batra told FastCo.

Despite what a lot of rabid AI supporters might think, Musk is not against the use of intelligent machines.

The second experiment was done to make the bots learn and develop communicating skills.

The negotiations appeared to break down as the robots departed from standard English and used a mostly incomprehensible language.

Researchers from the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research lab designed two AI agents to negotiate with humans.

The conversation continues with variations of the number of the times Bob said "i" and the number of times Alice said "to me" in the discussion. This was actually news earlier this year, but it's making the rounds anew because Elon Musk gave us a fresh warning that AIs were the biggest threat to humanity today.
