Researchers from the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research lab (FAIR) recently observed something unusual while trying to improve chatbots. The bots who are also known as dialogue agents had developed their own language.
With the help of machine learning algorithms, dialogue agents were left to converse freely to strengthen their conversational skills. The bots seems to be intelligent enough to deviate from the scripted norms and created its own language without human input. Chatbots turned out to be better than humans! That’s strange! Well, this was an interesting discovery infact, bots also learnt negotiating. Over a period of time the bots became skilled at it. 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, the bots 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.
