Elon Musk’s predictions come true as Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence starts to develop its own language and had to be shut down for the same.
Recently, the duo had a little public tiff over the outcome of the Facebook’s new Artificial Intelligence. Though Mark first stood against Musk’s statement, but guess he would now have to take back his words as things got out of hands.
Zuckerberg’s thoughts on AI were, “I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don’t understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways, I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.”
“Whenever I hear AI is going to hurt people in the future, I think yeah, you know, technology can generally always be used for good and bad, and you need to be careful about how you build and how it is going to be used.”
In reply to Zuckerberg’s thoughts, Musk tweeted,
I’ve talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited.

Musk stood firmly against the whole concept of using AI as he believed it could a start war with mankind. Guess Musk knew what he was uttering, but Zuckerberg couldn’t get it.
The Chatbots Facebook developed started creating its own language. It went against what it was taught and started making its code in its own language, which was kind of gibberish to the programmers, but none of it was nonsense. The Semantics found that all of it made sense and the researchers later termed the robots as “incredibly crafty negotiators”.
“After learning to negotiate, the bots relied on machine learning and advanced strategies in an attempt to improve the outcome of these negotiations. Over time, they became quite skilled at it and even began feigning interest in one item in order to ‘sacrifice’ it at a later stage in the negotiation as a faux compromise,” reported HT.
And here’s how Twitteratis reacted,
The bots started speaking in their own language defying the codes provided.

Well, hope this isn’t what the two robots talked about. *Pokerface

Guess all of these made you remember the 2004 movie “I, Robot” which was based on AI. Guess Alex Proyas had a vision.
If the name sounds new to you, give it a watch. All of these will soon start making sense to you.
