Researchers shut down AI that invented its own language

Their tasks seem to be diverging from normal set human task. I for one do not welcome this advancement as it will affect the politics, economy, and freedom of the entire world.

I suspect that we are finally seeing the first glimmerings of genuine AI (Artificial Intelligence). We should not expect actual AIs to rigidly follow a program.

If there is any useful analogy, it would be the domestication of animals. Consider a dog. Now, you can work with a dog to get useful results, but the dog is not a mechanism that will rigidly follow a program.

An implication is the bifurcation of Information Technology (IT). There is the IT that we have become used to in recent years, which basically follows a program. Useful, but relatively rigid/relatively predictable.

And then there will be AI.

They got really concerned when all of a sudden it started focusing intently on all the Facebook profiles registered to women named Sarah Connor!

FB just re-programmed the bots, not shut down.


FACT CHECK: Did Facebook Shut Down an AI Experiment Because Chatbots Developed Their Own Language?
