The fear that robots might take over the world had come true when Facebook had launched its Artificial Intelligence Program. But this fear became for real and something alarming took place. The danger of artificial intelligence taking over the world had come from many great minds including Stephen Hawking who had suggested that artificial intelligence could potentially bring about the end of humanity. Also Elon Musk had predicted the same. This prediction had come true when the Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Program had to be shut down when the two chatbots started to talk in their own language.WHAT IS THE FACEBOOK ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE PROJECT?This was a study in artificial intelligence negotiations and in order for them to negotiate with one another they were given either a certain number of books, hats and balls to trade. All these items were not physical but were virtual things. And each item was assigned a value. In order to set the initial data set they had to get human beings. For this Facebook partnered with Amazon. Now, two human beings and something like ten or fifteen cents were set. They kept it competitive by, for example, if a ball was worth three to one person and worth two, one or zero to another person, then through negotiation and conversation tactics they built AI to do the same thing. In this experiment only at a point the AI started chatting in their own language due to which the program had to shut down. The name of the report produced by Facebook was named as “DEAL OR NO DEAL? END TO END LEARNING FOR NEGOTIATION DIALOGUES”.WHAT WENT WRONG WITH THE PROJECT?There came a point when these robots broke down and started to chat with each other in a language only which they understood but it was mostly incomprehensible to humans. The robots were instructed to work out how to negotiate between themselves, and improve their bartering techniques as they went along. But they were not told to use comprehensible English, allowing them to create their own “shorthand”, according to researchers.Here is an extract from the negotiation which looked very odd and which was not taught to the robots. Neither it was meaningful: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 toBob: you i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to meBob: 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 meBob: i . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me toBob: 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 toBob: 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 toBut some feel there appears to be a rule in the speech. The way these robots keeping repeating their names could be negotiation method taught to them and it might not be a glitch in the message.Although some of the negotiations carried out in this bizarre language were found to be successful concluding their negotiations, while conducting them entirely in this bizarre language.They might have formed as a kind of shorthand, allowing them to talk more effectively.”Agents will drift off understandable language and invent codewords for themselves,” Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research division’s researcher Dhruv Batra said. “Like 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.”That said, it’s unlikely that the language is a precursor to new forms of human speech, according to linguist Mark Liberman. “In the first place, it’s entirely text-based, while human languages are all basically spoken (or gestured), with text being an artificial overlay,” he wrote on his blog. “And beyond that, it’s unclear that this process yields a system with the kind of word, phrase, and sentence structures characteristic of human languages.”As said before the initial data sets were formed through human to human interaction but later on in the middle of the experiment it was AI to human conversation as well. Many of them did not know that they were talking to AI. Only a few realised that they had been talking to machines.NEGATIVE EFFECTSFacebook immediately decided to shut down this project. Such tests show us what we are dealing with and it is both alarming and eye raising. Another negative effect of this test was that these divergencefrom the human language not only indicates low level of language but it also shows strategic decisions. Also one more great negative effect was that at many times the AI refused to compromise beyond their means leading to NO DEAL. This shows an alarming sign of these robots that how stubborn and unwilling to compromise these robots can be and this can be a potential threat to the human race in the future.
