The year 2017 was of the most shocking years for the whole world. Because in this year, during, July-August time, an experiment carried out by Facebook shocked the whole world. In the experiment, the engineers to make advanced chatbots. The chatbot is a kind of robot from where we get replies automatically. They were trying to create bots, that can talk to each other.
Finally, they created two chatbots and named them as Alice and Bob. They talked to each other in a very different manner. The copy of their conversation is given below:-
Facebook’s engineers weren’t able to understand what they are talking about. After many inspections, they got to know that these bots have already developed a language by themselves. And are escaping from us humans to talk to each other. This program got weird intelligence.
Language-making is not very simple. This can be only done by very witty people.
For example, if we will ask a Chimpanzee to create a language, he will not be able to do it. But computer programs can make it secretly without letting us humans know because of the artificial computer network.
After several days of this incident, many International news channels reported that Facebook has logged off these AI Programs because of helplessness. After many difficulties, they were able to switch off that program. What if they had not switched off this program? They switched off this program as they thought that these bots are acting over smart and also going, out of their control. This event was one of the most shocking events in the world of AI.
What if computers become self-aware, just like humans and began to understand each other’s language? What if AI becomes even more intelligent than humans? Will they rule the whole world?
In my next blog, we will discuss AI deeply.
