Facebook accidentally invents a new machine language

A new language has been accidentally created by artificial intelligence programmes created by Facebook

The social media firm was experimenting with teaching chatbots how to negotiate with one another when they stumbled upon the discovery.

The bots were attempting to imitate human speech when they developed their own machine language spontaneously.

The discovery could provide a glimpse into how machines will communicate independently of people in the future.

BOT LANGUAGE 

Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Researchers were teaching chatbots about human speech.

The bots were originally left alone to develop their conversational skills.

When the experimenters returned, they found that the AI software had begun to deviate from normal speech.

Instead, they were using a brand new language created without any input from their human supervisors. 

The new language was more efficient for communication between the bots, but was not helpful in achieving the task they had been set.

The discovery could provide a glimpse into how machines will communicate independently of people in the future.

Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Researchers (Fair) were teaching the chatbots, artificial intelligence programs that carry out automated one to one tasks, to make deals with one another.

As part of the learning process they set up two bots, known as a dialog agents, to teach each other about human speech using machine learning algorithms. 

The bots were originally left alone to develop their conversational skills.

When the experimenters returned, they found that the AI software had begun to deviate from normal speech.

Instead, they were…
