FACEBOOK SHUTS DOWN AI SYSTEM AFTER BOTS CREATE THEIR OWN LANGUAGE
Facebook has reportedly shut down one of its AI systems because “things got out of hand.” The AI bots created their own language, from the scratch and without human input, forcing Facebook to shut down the AI system. The AI bots’ step of creating and communicating with the new language defied the provided codes.
According to a report in Tech Times on Sunday, “The AI did not start shutting down computers worldwide or something of the sort, but it stopped using English and started using a language that it created.” Initially the AI agents used English to converse with each other but they later created a new language that only AI systems could understand, thus, defying their purpose.
This led Facebook researchers to shut down the AI systems and then force them to speak to each other only in English.
XIAOMI’S EXPANSION PLANS RECEIVES US$1 BILLION BOOST
Electronics giant Xiaomi has announced that they have secured a US$1 billion loan in debt financing from a group of 18 banks led by Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley.
The Beijing-based company also raised around $1.45 billion in equity financing from venture capital firms like Qualcomm Ventures and IDG Capital.
The money will allow the company to pursue their plan of building more offline bricks-and-mortar stores, which ranks as a top priority for development by the Chinese company.
Growth has been sluggish for Xiaomi in recent years and the company will be hopeful that this latest round of financing will help it to catch up with rivals Huawei Technologies, Oppo and Vivo.
