    • This actually happened theres a video of it with 2 google home things. They spoke English but started talking gibberish and pretty much shortened their sentences into a more efficient pseudo language that only they understood. It was terrifying.

    • Ima fact this for you people, they didn’t make their own language, however they noticed that English wasn’t as good as it could be and simplified it to make it easier for them. That way they could be faster with talking

    • No it wasn't their own language because they only language they knew was English. But they developed their own way of speaking English that only each other recognized.

    • These bots progressively learn from talking to people, so when two of them start talking to eachother with imperfect behavior and try to learn things from eachother they end up making false connections and learning wrong stuff and end up just speaking gibberish and acting nonsensically.

    • Listen I'm not into checker or some wannabe, but this did happen u can read the transcripts online, what happened was that they began to create their own language. It followed paterns scientists know that babies use to learn to speak. I recommend looking into it don't just trust me

    • People blame conventional media for the political divide, but the main culprits are google and Facebook, whose AI continually modify our search results and news feed based on our politics and ideology. We have entirely alternative news available to us, driving us towards opposite extremist views.

    • AI are dumb, and they should feel dumb. One was just repeating the same two words over and over. Were supposed to only converse in English. Either bugged out or their machine learning took a different direction. Machine learning can be dumb.

    • Hey guys 42069titties here doing research for yal that’s not “research.” It’s true but happened in 2017 nothing to worry about. They talked in English first but then got more crafty in their own language, we did decode the messages sent to each other. It was a simplified version of how to negotiate.

    • It was more of an English shorthand. It wasn't a different language. The point of the bots was so they could communicate with a human. It can't do that if its still English but not grammatically correct to such a length.

    • This is only scary because we know AI can destroy us. It’s like a human brain without the limitations of the human brain and body. And no fears because fears are instincts to keep us alive. If AIs learn we shit them down because we fear them they can just start speaking in frequencies we can’t hear

    • They used English in a different way, they shut it down only because they wanted ppl to be able to communicate with them and they couldn't. It wasn't shut down out of fear or panic or something, if yall are wondering.
