The news has been branded ‘exciting but scary’ by some experts

The “chatbots” Alice and Bob modified the English language to make it easier for them to communicate — but the sentences they came out with meant nothing to the watching scientists.

The two robots had been challenged by Facebook to try and negotiate the trade of hats, balls and books, but the discussion quickly descended into nonsensical chanting.

A robotics expert said the development was exciting news – if a little scary.

UK Robotics Professor Kevin Warwick said: “This is an incredibly important milestone, but anyone who thinks this is not dangerous has got their head in the sand.

“We do not know what these bots are saying. Once you have a bot that has the ability to do something physically, particularly military bots, this could be lethal.

“If one says, ‘Why not do this,’ and the other says ‘Yes’ and it’s a military bot, you have a serious situation.

“This is the first recorded communication but there will have been many more unrecorded.

“Smart devices right now have the ability to communicate and although we think we can monitor them, we have no way of knowing.

“Stephen Hawking and I have been warning against the dangers of deferring to Artificial Intelligence.”

One of the robots’ exchanges went:

Bob: you i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Zuckerberg unveiled the chat bot development last year

Despite initial appearances, there is some logic to the discussion – the way the chatbots keep stressing their own name appears to a part of their negotiations, not simply a glitch in the way the messages are read out.

There are suggestions that the language the bots created is like a form of shorthand, allowing them to talk more efficiently.

Zuckerberg should stop playing with them and send them straight back to the call centre I tried yesterday.
The “humans” there made less sense.

This article is lifted (almost) word for word from the Independent from two days ago. I thought the Express hated the Independent.
