Facebook AI has created its own unique language to converse with each other
By Ruslan BraginA recent report from Facebook tips that researchers from the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research Lab(FAIR) created chatbots to converse with each other. The chatbots made up their own way of communicating using machine learning, which showed a marked deviation from human languages. A distinct pattern that enables the chatbots to communicate freely using machine learning has been identified. These chatbots designed by the humans act independently and used their own unique language to emphasize their conversational strategies.The single, impulsive growth of an own language was the most thrilling development for the researchers, undoubtedly. The chatbots are also the evidences of how machines are redefining human’s understanding of multiple realms and domains, that were earlier believed to be solely dominated by humans and their languages. Facebook’s chatbots are the clear indicators that predictions involved in machine learning research need to be more accurate. Till date, machine learning has generally entailed a fair amount of guesswork and speculation. Abundant data is fed to the neural network, followed by a detailed examination of the output. This gives an insight into the thinking pattern of the machine, though there is room for further exploration. Facebook’s researchers wrote in their paper, “There remains much potential for future work, particularly in exploring other reasoning strategies, and in improving the diversity of utterances without diverging from human language.” Most of these studies have revealed that despite being designed by humans, these machines have their own non-human ways of communication. This clearly indicates that there are still ample areas of machine behavior that need to be investigated further.

Deep Artificial Intelligence Challenges Humans
By Ruslan BraginTwitter is now going to upgrade its platform to announce big ideas. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk has demonstrates ideas on how deep AI might lead to the downfall of humanity in the near future. Musk elaborates on his vision to measure the advancement of deep AI in the field of technology. Apparently, with the intention of a joke, a Twitter user sent out a Business Insider tweet regarding Tesla car to Elon Musk, insisting to confirm that the progress in "humanless automation" will not lead to a "robotic apocalypse". Musk saw the tweet and replied - AI and automation are two distinct things.Smart-home systems automatically control the usage of electricity or temperature, whereas automation indicates the ability of machines to perform functions programmed automatically.Self-driving cars are a sophisticated form of automation. AI and deep AI are contoured with different types of algorithms that are specifically generated to take up the process and information, to become more intelligent. Musk’s solution to this potential threat has expressed some real concerns about A.I. In short, automation system attacks humans because they are recorded, or have been hacked by malicious parties.The automation key is not a progression of AI. It’s all about merging automated learning with Artificial Intelligence. For more information related to this, please visit the link
Apple is secretly working on developing AI technology for Self-Driving Cars
By Ruslan BraginApple is now trying to expand its presence in the Automotive markets. The company has been secretly working on developing Artificial Intelligence technology for autonomous cars. During an interview with Bloomberg, company’s CEO Tim Cook elaborated the plans they have for enhancing towards the new technology. "We're focusing on autonomous systems, and clearly one purpose of autonomous systems is self-driving cars [but] there are others", Cook discussed in the interview with Bloomberg. During the interview, he also told that it is probably one of the most difficult projects to work on. With the evolution of self-driving technology in cars, many technology companies saw it as an opportunity to develop similar technology. This has lead to an uncontrolled slide of such companies into the auto industry. To be in the race of autonomous cars, Alphabet Inc’s Waymo has now partnered with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and Lyft Inc to develop similar technology. In addition to this, BMW AG, General Motors Co. have opened their offices in Silicon Valley to acquire autonomous vehicle startups. The company had plans of building its own car until last year when they shelled the project giving priority to the underlying technology for autonomous driving. Apple had hired more than 1000 engineers for its Project Titan, as the car team is known internally after it started in 2014. In the interview, Cook didn’t actually make a commitment to developing its own autonomous car. In his words, “I think there is major disruption looming there”. Apple seems interested in developing AI technology for the connected cars.
