But this robot isn’t defective; its language capabilities aren’t malfunctioning. In fact, this AI has, with the other AI, created its own language. Researchers shared this interaction as an example:Bob (AI1): “I can i i everything else”Alice (AI2): “balls have zero to me to me to me…” It was reported that the rest of the conversation continued with variations of these two sentences. This “language” doesn’t seem great—it comes off as badly interpreted, broken English. But it has, according to these researchers, a much more advanced explanation.

They use repetition (like with “i” and “to me”) to condense information in sentences in a manner that the researchers, after analysis, described as highly logical, more so than many English phrases.In an interview with Fast Co. Design, one of Facebook’s AI researchers, Druv Batra, said that “Agents will drift off from understandable language and invent code-words for themselves…Like if I say ‘the’ five times, you interpret that to mean…
