Facebook robot is shut down after it ‘invented its own language’

Initially it looks like absolute gibberish, but it became clear that the machines – nicknamed Bob and Alice – were actually communicating with one another. In a Frankenstein twist on their research, the robot abruptly stopped using English and could only be understood by other AI.

It comes after other AI developed in a similar pattern elsewhere, like when Google Translate invented its own language. The so-called ‘neutral network’ started translating phrases easier using it’s own language, according to the New Scientist.

To which Alice replied: ‘balls have zero to me to me to me…It is thought that the robots were trying to resolve problems they had encountered because ‘I’ and ‘to me’ reflects problems one AI is having and the response from a so-called ‘negotiating agent’.

Scientists have built the robots to switch to more efficient call-and-responses, but it ended up being gibberish to humans. Facebook robot is shut down after it ‘invented its own language’. ‘There was no reward to sticking to English language,’ Georgia Tech scientist Dhruv Batra told Fast Co. Design.

‘If I say “the” five times, you interpret that to mean I want five copies of this item. This isn’t so different from the way communities of humans create shorthands’.
Although Facebook switched their robots off, the AI at Google encouraged the reporters and they have continued to use their ‘neutral network’.
