Recently, scientists have switched off Facebook’s robot because it has reportedly created its own language.
Researchers noticed that Artificial Intelligence they had created has started to make up their own code words, initially it looks like absolute gibberish, but it became clear that the machines – nicknamed Bob and Alice – were actually communicating with one another. The robot abruptly stopped using English and could only be understood by other AI.
This creates a friendly little argument about the fate of humanity. Elon Musk, the chief of Tesla and SpaceX, has longstanding worries about the potentially apocalyptic future of AI. “I keep sounding the alarm bell,” he told attendees at a National Governors Association meeting this month. “But until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react” in a Facebook Live broadcast, Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, offered riposte. He called Musk a “naysayer” and accused his fears of unnecessary negativity. “In some ways, I actually think it is pretty irresponsible,” Zuck scolded. Musk then reported on Twitter: “I’ve talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited.”
Now the question arises, is musk right in his way of thinking or we can say our world is ready to accept AI?
The AI displayed the ability to predict where human players would deploy forces and improvise on the spot, in a game where sheer speed of operation does not correlate with the victory, meaning the AI was simply better, not just faster than the best human players.
Nobody likes being regulated, but everything (cars, planes, food, drugs, etc) that’s a danger to the public is regulated. AI should be too.
