    Over blown.. This specific project failed to achieve its objective and that was the reason they shut it down. AI did not invent a new language. It was tasked to communicate in english but it started using english words that made no sense. The two bots that "communicated" didn't really attain their objective either. That's why they shut it down as it was useless.

    Trust me, if FB has an AI that's really capable of conversing in efficient manner. They'd never reveal it in public. They can make billions out of it.

      Media made this into a huge deal. its not. They were turned off because theyre, the machines, too dumb not because they were too smart. Come on guys read past just headlines.

      Thank you. Creating a new language wasn’t a threat, it was shut down because continuation would have been a waste of resources/money/time.

    For God sake no one panicked. They just made a slight mistake so they had to correct it. This has been blown out of proportion.

    real question is: did they shut it down fast enough? We may never know until it's too late.

    on a simplistic level - computer programs already talk with each other in their own language aka their own protocols for various needs. they don't need to invent their own language based on English words.
    I reckon it was just an ai experiment that didn't work out and shutdown. blown way out of proportion that they had to shut it down just in time before the ai started bitching about humans.

      we need to be afraid because we are limited by our biological evolution....AI will surpass us... and we are risking humanity.

      If you haven't seen ExMachina, it's an amazing movie that has a lot of quotes about this at the beginning.

    Almost fake news. Just like the AI robot in Japan that kept commiting suicide when exposed to human behavior.
