Why Did Facebook Shut Down Artificial Intelligence?

Facebook has always been the talk of the town. From investing in AR smart glasses to privacy allegations, Facebook has always created headlines. Again, the company has made it to the headlines by shutting down the Artificial Intelligence system. Wanna know why? Be with us! 


What made Facebook shut down Al?

The social media company reportedly shut down one of its Al systems because "things went  out of control." The artificial intelligence bots created their language without human assistance, forcing Facebook Al Research Lab (FAIR)  to shut down the Al system. 

As per the report by Tech Times, “ The Al 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.”

The researcher found that "chat agents" developed their language. The report said that the bots immediately began to deviate from the script and began communicating in a completely new language; they created the language without human intervention. 

The report further said using machine learning algorithms, "dialogue agents" can talk freely to improve their conversational skills. The researchers also found that these bots are "very sneaky negotiators."Over time, the bots become skilled. Once they learn how to negotiate, bots rely on machine learning and advanced strategies to improve the outcome of those negotiations."


Facebook Shutdown AI systems


Artificial Intelligence 

The incident makes us somewhat concerned about the potential of Al. Artificial intelligence can be dangerous to humankind. Several tech experts and scientists, including Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak, have warned that Al could lead to tragic unforeseen consequences.

Even in 2014, Stephen Hawking said that Al could mean the end of the human race. “ It would take off on its own and re-design itself at an ever-increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete and would be superseded.”


Why is Al Scary?

Artificial intelligence is a buzzword that often gets tossed around the business, technical, and media world. The increase in Al and companies continue investing in it brings us to some of the fears. 


The Fear of Mass unemployment 

The most common fear among analysts is the fear of losing jobs. It is said that Al will result in mass global unemployment as jobs are becoming automated and human labor is no longer required.


The Fear of War 

The emergence of so-called "killer robots" and other use of AI in military applications has worried that the technology could lead to war.

Frank van Harmelen, an Al researcher, said, “ Any computer system, Al or not, automatically decides on a matter of life and death, for example, by launching a missile, is a really scary idea.”



Artificial Intelligence


The Fear of Mass surveillance 

Experts fear that artificial intelligence could be used for mass surveillance. In China, it seems to have become a reality. The country is currently home to around 200 million surveillance cameras.

According to a report by New Your Time, “China is the only country in the world rolling out a social credit system that tracks the activities of citizens to rank them with scores that can determine whether they can be barred from accessing everything from plane flights to certain online dating services.”


Back to Facebook 

Many theories are floating around about what went wrong with Facebook’s experiment. The language created by the chatbox was not English, but it was a language that only they understood. The keywords included were “I” and “me.”

The spokesperson of Facebook said, “The ability to communicate with people in a way which is as powerful as spoken language will unlock new ways of interacting with people, from entertainment, gaming, and design, to personalized support for users and automated systems.”



Facebook is working on improving its Al to make it sensible. To improve, it’s dealing with such a powerful technology that can learn new things independently. The social media platform has also decided to shut down facial recognition tags. 

Moreover, the debate around artificial intelligence will keep ongoing. Machines and artificial intelligence have the potential to simplify and improve our lives. It is scary, but that doesn’t mean you can stay away from it. More or less, machines and AI have become a part of our lives. We do need to take some precautions and closely understand it.

My name is Andrine and over the past years , I have been fighting and disputing with Equifax TransUnion and Experian, about many negative items that are appearing on my credit reports that do not belong to me or have I ever associated with as I was a victim of identity theft. I have faxed and emailed to all of them the mandatory documentation and everything else however, they keep coming back with absolutely nothing. I hired a credit repair agency, Lexington Law and again that was a waste of time and was scammed over $1700.00. Afterwards, I contacted ransomware credit and they offered a professional service to me. They removed all the negative items and increased my score to 798 within 5 days and that was a blast. here is their contact info: Ransomwarecredit@gmail.com 4846258756 Whatsapp +1 8328195802

I was always skeptical of using a credit repair company but I decided to give (Ransomwarecredit@gmail.com Whatsapp (+1 832 819-5802) a try. I am so glad I did. They have been so helpful in getting my credit score up. For the first time recently I was able to secure a loan with a low interest rate which I could have never gotten previously. I work tons of hours so doing this on my own was not an option. Whenever I had a question or wanted to get an update, customer service was always helpful and polite. Rare to find these days. I would recommend Ransomware Credit to anyone that needs help with their credit. It has really been a great experience overall.

My scores were 471 TransUnion and 544 Equifax on credit karma, the files contained inquiries, eviction, medical bills and utility charge offs and have no real trade lines. I needed capital for a business opportunity I had therefore I needed to fix my credit and I needed it real quick. I was introduced to RANSOMWARE CREDIT for help and what appealed to me was the fact that they do the job first and then get paid and that was true in my case as well. I was ripped off 3 times by fake credit repair imposters but they (RANSOMWARECREDIT@GMAIL.COM, +1 470 274 7214) helped me. They deleted the eviction, inquiries and other bad items preventing me from being qualified for the loan and eventually raised my score to 796 and that was unbelievable. Thereafter, I qualified for the loan and I started my business, thanks to the RANSOMWARE CREDIT.

In 2017 I fell off the roof and broke my back and because of lack of communication by my ex-wife my insurance was messed up and did not cover some of my medical expenses and it eventually messed up my credit. I have had loans and paid them off early, I just couldn’t see paying huge interest rates if I could ever get a house. We live in Poulsbo City and we stayed in a camper before and after the storm. My daughter and children came here to us so we needed a home badly. A family friend who recently bought a home after having his credit repaired by the Ransomware Credit introduced me to them so they could help me fix my credit within a short time. They finally deleted all the negative items (hard inquiries, medical bills, a bankruptcy and a judgment) and raised my score to 795. This was a miracle and I and my family can’t thank him enough so I decided to put this up here to show appreciation for their good job. Here is their contact: WhatsApp : +1 832 819 5802 Gmail::RANSOMWARECREDIT@GMAIL.COM Text +1 470 274 7214 , you can hit them up and get your credit issues sorted out ASAP.

Hacknet Credit Specialist is truly amazing. I have been trying for years to get rid of 2 bad accounts on my credit report. So I contacted him from a credit blog, he was able to get Capital One to completely delete their tradeline off all 3 of my reports. He did the same on my second account; and also cleans off my student loan of $54,000 and I got a high score of 795, he has been completely transparent and extremely communicative. Very affordable, I highly recommend him HACKNET567@GMAIL.COM +1 6464502754. Don't hesitate to get in touch with him for credit fix

Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week.

Special thanks to HACK VANISH, a professional hacker I’ve been hiring for the past 2 years because, I find him to be an outstanding hacker who has aided me in various hacking related issues, ranging from fixing my poor FICO credit score of about 437 TransUnion, 462 Equifax to 802 plus excellent score, tracking my cheating husband’s phone and currently has helped me recover my lost crypto funds from an online scam investment I recently ventured into, I must confess he is the best, quite brilliant, ever since I discovered him through a positive review I saw on Wallet Hub and reached out to him via Email: Hackvanish @ Gmail. com, and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, to which he responded in less than 10mins, I have never regretted working with him, he’s been quite helpful and highly efficient. I Would recommend his services to anyone without hesitation.
