Facebook Not at Risk from its Smart AI
Recently news had been flooding the internet, saying Facebook shut down its AI after bots developed their own language. A robotics professor also commented saying that the incident of the two bots talking to each other, proves that this technology would be lethal if used by military forces.
Facebook designed the two bots to demonstrate the possibility of different goal-oriented dialogue agents to engage in start-to-finish discussions with people to arrive at a common outcome.
FAIR said that chatbox was developed to learn from human interactions to negotiate deals with such fluency that people are unaware they are talking to robots. Facebook succeeded at doing this, however when two semi-intelligent bots were made to talk to each other, they were not programmed to communicate according to rules of English, resulting in a rather creepy communication which was simply an effort to learn from each other.
Facebook did indeed to shut down the conversation between the two semi-intelligent bots, however they were not threatened about the potential Skynet. In fact, they intended to have the bots talk to other people and not with each other, according to FAIR on August 1, 2017.
The machine learning technology could be used in medical diagnostics and by the police to predict emerging riots. However, this incident of bots communicating with each other leads to the understanding that bots need to be programmed so as not to develop their own languages which humans would not understand. These machine learning programs should not be used in professions where they could cause impending danger.
