Facebook Ai Robot is shutdown after it ‘invented its own language

 Facebook Shutdown An Ai Robot  experiment after two artificially intelligent Robots appeared to with each other in a strange language only they understood.

The two Robots in Question , Started to create their own changes to English that made it easier for them communicate – which Couldn’t be translated by the humans that supposedly look after them.

The incident came a during challenge facebook set for the pair of Robots , Which consisted of trying to negotiate with each To do a trade, Attempting to swap objects like , balls , Hats and Books .

I have just returned from CVPR to find my FB/Twitter feed blown up with articles describing apocalyptic doomsday…

While the idea of AI agents inventing their own language may sound alarming/unexpected to people outside the field, it is a well-established sub-field of AI,” Batra writes on his Facebook page, noting that research demonstrating this goes back “decades.”
Batra also says the team stopped the bots because the experiment required the chatbots to speak English, not because there was something nefarious going on.

Yet people are still worked up, some even paranoid about AI.

In fact, people are more afraid of “computers replacing people in the workforce” and “technology [they] don’t understand” than they are about things like ghosts, blood and even their significant others cheating on them, according to the most recent

The actual negotiations appear very odd, and don’t look especially useful:

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
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

But there appear to be some rules to the speech. The way the chatbots keep stressing their own name appears to a part of their negotiations, not simply a glitch in the way the messages are read out.
Indeed, some of the negotiations that were carried out in this bizarre language even ended up successfully concluding their negotiations, while conducting them entirely in the bizarre language.
They might have formed as a kind of shorthand, allowing them to talk more effectively.

Elon Musk recently put forth his own doomsday scenario. “I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned by it,” says Musk, speaking to a roomful of governors last month.

“AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization in a way that car accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs or bad food were not — they were harmful to a set of individuals within society, of course, but they were not harmful to society as a whole,” he says.

Batra’s boss, Mark Zuckerberg, calls such fearful warnings “irresponsible.”

“I have pretty strong opinions on this. I am optimistic,” says Zuckerberg. “I think you can build things and the world gets better. But with AI especially, I am really optimistic. And I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don’t understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.”
