"Facebook shuts off AI experiment after two robots begin speaking in their OWN language"

Via Drudge:  The “chatbots” Alice and Bob modified English to make it easier for them to communicate — creating sentences that were gibberish to watching scientists.

“We do not know what these bots are saying. Once you have a bot that has the ability to do something physically, particularly military bots, this could be lethal.

“If one says, ‘Why not do this,’ and the other says ‘Yes’ and it’s a military bot, you have a serious situation.

“This is the first recorded communication but there will have been many more unrecorded.

“Smart devices right now have the ability to communicate and although we think we can monitor them, we have no way of knowing.

“Stephen Hawking and I have been warning against the dangers of deferring to Artificial Intelligence.”

Gimmie a "B"
Gimmie an "S"
What does it spell

Anyway, I like this line:
“Stephen Hawking and I have been warning against the dangers of deferring to Artificial Intelligence.”

Let me try a couple:
Jeff Bezos and I sometimes check our bank accounts.
Elon Musk and I like rockets.
The Rock and I have muscles.
Chip and I cook a lot.

If they're worried about AI they should take a closer look at Hawking. I'm pretty sure he's been dead for several years.

Facebook AI experiment goes awry when robots go off the reservation, start thinking independently and commenting favorably about Trump.
How Deplorable.

Name-dropping, star-fucking, fake-newsing, crony capitalism megalomaniac who got unaccountably rich off a social media app only slightly more hip and cool than AOL which snoops on everyone to promote messages of globalist collectivism. He even looks like a movie villain: Super Nerd.

At this point, I for one welcome my robot overlords.

The name Toby made me think of Geordi on Star Trek TNG.

He seemed like an okay kind of guy.

Pretty sure he did a cameo on TBBT.

They were plotting a swap with sexbots Carol and Ted.
