Most people are completely unaware of the phenomenal rate that our AI systems have improved at the past five years and the trend is only getting steeper and steeper.

Earlier this year Facebook was working on the new highly intelligent AI chatbot that could talk to and negotiate with humans in a realistic manner. When one Facebook engineer had the bright idea to two of these AI bots and let them talk to each other that’s when something unexpected and terrifying happened.

The two AIs invented their own language that humans couldn’t understand. They began using it to talk to each other. These two bots named Bob and Allice started talking and Facebook engineers had no idea what the bots were talking about. Amazingly, the bots had created their secret code to converse using the power of artificial networks.

International news soon reported that Facebook shut down the experiment due to concerns that the AIs are becoming too smart and are getting out of control, and to prevent a sky net situation.
This isn’t entirely true, even though they did shut it down right away, simply because they were trying to design a AI that could talk to human. The failed project created its own language which wasn’t that much of a use to humanity! Therefore, this experiment was considered a failure!

This is also very creepy, as we continue to push the boundaries to artificial intelligence, further and further every year, what happens when they do become self-aware and even more intelligent than human beings? Could AI take over the world and will it be in our lifetimes?

Artificial intelligence, the ability of computers to think at a human level are beyond, and to self-replicate and to self-improve is not a dystopian vision of the future. It is here! It is now! It is happening!
