FACEBOOK STOP ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ROBOTS AFTER THEY CREATE ITS OWN LANGUAGE

Facebook has shut down two artificial intelligences that appeared to be chatting to each other in a strange language only they understood.The two chatbots came to create their own changes to English that made it easier for them to work – but which remained mysterious to the humans that supposedly look after them.

The bizarre discussions came as Facebook challenged its chatbots to try and negotiate with each other over a trade, attempting to swap hats, balls and books, each of which were given a certain value. But they quickly broke down as the robots appeared to chant at each other in a language that they each understood but which appears mostly incomprehensible to humans.
Facebook‘s researchers trained the bots so they would learn to negotiate in the most effective way possible, but they didn’t tell the bots they had to follow the rules of English grammar and syntax. Because of this, the bots began communicating in a nonsensible way.

The actual discussion between them is 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
