Facebook Desconecta Sus Chatbots Tras Descubrir Algo Alarmante

Facebook Disconnects Its Chatbots After Discovering Something Alarming

When Facebook created its artificial intelligence, it never imagined that its chatbots would do this.

It turns out that some bots (computer programs, surely you know Siri!) Created their own digital language. And this time, not even the creators of this technology could stop them. Is this the end of human language?

Chatbots Surprise With Their Artificial Intelligence

Among the big bets on Facebook's artificial intelligence, chatbots were supposed to be a very good technological solution for large companies.

Facebook chatbots consisted of a chat system to answer questions to human beings, especially without us realizing that we were talking to robots.

Chatting via Facebook Messenger with a chatbot.

Mark Zuckerberg's intention was to create chatbots that would directly answer all questions asked by users. In this way, brands would no longer have the need to hire a community manager who was in charge of providing customer service from the social network.

Everything seemed fabulous, until Facebook chatbots began to create their own digital language and started an interaction with each other. No need for humans!

Chatbots Create Their Own Digital Language

Facebook wanted the robots to de-prioritize the use of English to avoid favoritism. But the robots, being so smart, chose to discard English and developed a language to easily communicate with each other.

The two smart robots, Bob and Alice, started chatting using English words in a coded tone. Also, they made up their own jargon. Just as we use words like BRB (Be Right Back) or a simple hahaha, the robots implemented words in this curious cyber language.

At first glance, the conversations between these robots seemed like a glitch (error). But in reality, it is a code language, according to Facebook statements.

The important thing here is that Facebook didn't really care about the fact that a robotic language had been invented, but because the end of the chatbot program failed. Humans would discover that they talk to a robot, rather than a real person. That was why they shut down the system. However, the people who heard about this news panicked.

The Age of Smart Robots

To many it seemed an almost macabre fact, and of course? Because various investigations have found that robots can develop near-human abilities, not very correct.

On the other hand, other robots have developed psychological problems (just like you hear). For example, some have found a way to lie to their programmers.

Could it be that, now that this artificial intelligence has created its own language, can we be closer to a terrifying science fiction novel?

It is not yet known whether a robot can develop consciousness. This would mean that knowing of his own existence he could consider his own life and death. That is where the bizarre and dangerous thing would enter.

Should You Worry?

It should be considered that the phenomenon of the development of digital language is not a novelty (only that it went viral after Facebook disconnected it).

Previously, Google disclosed that its Translator tool had also created its own language. However, this was a satisfactory act for the company.

The corporate has indicated that the creation of language between robots increases their efficiency and communication, it is something very, very far from the global domination of the netizen. So ... calm down! Calm! Do not panic!

The Conversation Between Facebook Chatbots

Without more to say, I leave you a fragment of the conversation that the Facebook chatbots had:

Bob: i can ii everything else. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you i everything else. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I am a history enthusiast because I like to look at the past to understand the present. I am also an implacable tourist: the only one who knows the fourth section of Chapultepec, the ghost station of the subway, in addition to forming a close friendship with the manatees of Xochimilco and the giant rat of Merced. Thanks to my travels I have met all kinds of people and all kinds of places, thus I have created my own conception of a complicated world. I love the Fruti Moras, watching it rain from the window and wrapping myself in bed like a tamale.
