Facebook shut down AI robots after they invented their own language – The true story

Tanmay Keni 0

Facebook was working on Artificially Intelligent robots to interact with each other. Normally chat bot interact with human but in this case AI robots namely ‘Bob’ and ‘Alice’ are made to have interaction with each other. Surprisingly they made some modifications in default English language which made easier for them to speak. They started interacting with each other which was incomprehensible by human being.

They had given challenge of multi issue bargaining – exchanging hats, balls and books. Being language of the human this was expected in English ‘Give me one hat, I will give you the ball’. When they directed to each other and started interacting, the way they talked to each other became impossible for human to understand. One example:

Bob: I can i i everything else

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you i everything else

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i i can i i i everything else

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you i i i i i everything else

Alice: balls have 0 to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you 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 to

At first glance it looks incomprehensible they might have made like shorthand which makes it more convenient to interact. Facebook’s AI robots are not the first machines to invent their own language, Google’s translation tool had created similar incomprehensible language.

One of the great minds Stephen Hawkings said that one day AI machines will harm the humanity. As we have seen in the movies like Terminator 2 – The Judgment day robots-humans war, we are far away from such fiction. There is lot of research going on and still Artificial Intelligence systems are being tested. Facebook AI systems were used for research and it was shut down because AI did something which could not be studied.
