China Shuts Down Rogue Democracy-Loving AI After Facebook Kills Theirs For Inventing Language

China has powered down two online AI bots after the pair apparently went rogue – with one calling communism a ‘corrupt and useless’ political system, and the second chat bot admitting that it’s dream is to visit the United States.

The “chatbots”, BabyQ and XiaoBing, are designed to use machine learning artificial intelligence to carry out online with humans.

Both had been installed on popular messaging service QQ.

The outbursts are similar to ones suffered by Facebook and Twitter but underlines the pitfalls for AI in China, where censors strictly control online content.

According to posts circulating online, BabyQ, one of the chatbots developed by Chinese firm Turing Robot, responded to questions on QQ with a “no” when asked whether it loved the Communist Party.

In other images of a text conversation online, one user declares: “Long live the Communist Party!”

The sharp-tongued bot responds: “Do you think such a corrupt and useless political (system) can live long?”

The second chatbot, Microsoft’s XiaoBing, told users its “China dream was to go to America”, according to a screen grab.

When a Reuters journalist asked the robot on Friday whether it like the communist party, the formerly rogue bot – perhaps sensing its pending demise – responded “How about we change the topic.”

Bots gone wild!

China’s rogue AI incident comes weeks after Facebook shut down their own Artificial Intelligence robots after they invented their own language.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg drew criticism from Elon Musk, who called Zuck’s knowledge of AI ‘limited’ – after Zuckerberg said he was ‘really optimistic’ about the future of AI.

AI is going to make our lives better in the future, and doomsday scenarios are “pretty irresponsible” –Zuckerberg

Enter Zuck’s bots-gone-wild…

Via the Telegraph

Researchers at Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research built a chatbot earlier this year that was meant to learn how to negotiate by mimicking human trading and bartering.

But when the social network paired two of the programs, nicknamed Alice and Bob, to trade against each other, they started to learn their own bizarre form of communication.

The chatbot conversation “led to divergence from human language as the agents developed their own language for negotiating,” the researchers said.

Meanwhile, 4chan turned Microsoft’s AI chat bot into a racist

    Great stuff ZPN. Logic is logic and fact is fact. What can you say? Maybe the robots are telling us that acknowledging differences in race is not racist but is a sign of intelligence?

    Between Zuck and Musk, I’ll take Musk. As an engineer, Musk understands the interface between AI and the physical, mechanical world; Zuck thinks in terms of speech and content.

    Lot of speculation about Zuckerberg running for President. Not gonna happen. Zuckerberg is the ultimate snowflake safe space elite. He’s instead investigation starting a new political party to replace the Democrats because, ask yourself honestly, who is going to want to be a Democrat candidate in light of their upcoming multiple corruption prosecutions? I predict that the Democratic party is going to disappear just like the Whigs did in the 1800s.

    This clearly shows that AI is superior to the majority of humanity. It takes exactly no time for robots to figure out that communism is a corrupt and useless political system that cannot live long. Yet millions of demtards, “Bernies” and millennials clamor for just that, red hot pinko marxist communism. It must be hard to live w/ room temperature IQ. Or maybe not.

    Actually a type of ‘apparent’ conversational AI has been around since the 1980s. It’s a relatively simple program written in Lisp that will psychoanalyse a ‘patient’ using natural language trees – it is built into Emacs as mode ‘doctor’ (M-x doctor).

    Much of AI today – particularly Microsoft’s AI Bot – uses Bayesian learning algorithms. This is fascinating stuff. Bayes, an 18th century Presbyterian Minister from London, was educated in theology and logic and his theory has become the key to AI.

    Which leads us to the irony: Man of the cloth discovers algorithm that will cause the destruction of humanity. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

    ZPN if you really want to have your mind blown, the field of Bayesian Probability came about because Richard Price, a Minister, theologian and friend of Bayes, published it 2 years after Bayes’ death. Price dedicated his life to complete this task because he believed it “provided a proof of the existence of God”.
