According to the "Atlantic Monthly" website reported that Facebook in the experiment so that two AI chat robots dialogue with each other, found that the robot has gradually developed a unique language that humans can not understand.
Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research Labs uses machine learning to train chat robots. Researchers two robots talk to each other, the results found that the robot has gradually developed a dialogue with the human language, researchers have to carry out human intervention.
In other words, the two robots use the machine to learn the iterative escalation of the dialogue strategy, which will eventually lead the robot to communicate in a language that humans can not understand. AI self-upgrade faster than expected, reminiscent of "Blade Runner" in the science fiction scene.
Facebook pointed out in the research report, the robot can sometimes be well qualified customer service negotiations role, and even know how to use "pretending to admit" dialogue strategy. But the robot in the experiment to develop their own language is disturbing, people may be able to look at the future of the world look like.
Language is considered a unique skill of mankind. Facebook's chat robot's performance refreshes people's awareness.
Machine learning in promoting technological innovation at the same time, also brought a "black box" problem: AI conclusion is very wise, but the reasoning process human beings can not understand. Many methods have been proposed to crack this black box, including feeding data to a particular topic to the neural network, and then guessing the way the machine is based on the output. Today, the machine can produce non-human communication of this discovery, or to include system designers, including everyone lamented the limited knowledge of human beings.
"There are a lot of potential possibilities for future work, especially to let the machine understand more reasoning strategies and to increase the diversity of expressions without deviating from human language," Facebook researchers wrote in the report. (Sun Wenwen)
