Facebook Teaching Chat Bots How To Chat Like Humans


Facebook's AI Team - FAIR (Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research) is testing a new program that teaches bots how to chat like humans.

According to the research team, they used a special 164,000-utterance dataset known as “Persona-Chat” to teach its Artificial Intelligence how to chat like humans.

Persona Chat consists of more than 160,000 lines of dialogue which are sourced from workers found on Amazon’s “Mechanical Turk” marketplace.

Let me explain how Amazon’s MTurk works.

MTurk is a crowdsourcing internet marketplace which enables businesses and individuals to coordinate the use of human intelligence to perform tasks that computers can’t do

The results were a bit satisfactory, the test showed that the persona-driven bots didn’t score much on “fluency” and “consistency”. However, they were way better than normal chatbots.

This new test from Facebook is important because last year the company had to shut down one of its AI systems when they found that their chatbots created their own language and started communication in an entirely new language which they created without human input.

It sounds like a script from a sci-fi movie but believe me, it's true.

Let's hope the bots don't create new languages anymore and overthrow their human masters. 😂 😂.
