Facebook shuts down their AI chatbots after the chatbots invent their own language. Scary and sensational headline but really they shut it down because it’s impractical... so they say! And luxury 'Skinny House' to be built in a three-meter gap in London. And, don't start a sentence with “And”.
First, Facebook is experimenting with artificial intelligent (AI) chatbots to explore how people barter and trade. I bet they’re doing it so that chatbots can interact with customers better. Chatbots are less expensive than people for customer service. Anyway, they were messing around and they got two chatbots bartering with each other. Since there were no human involved, the chatbots started to create their own shorthand, or slang to communicate with each other. Some of the internet speculates that Facebook shutdown the project for fear of the chatbots developing their own secret language and taking over the world, or was that something I was afraid of?
Then, skinny houses, a health fad in London, where houses eat less calories, get plenty of exercise and fluids… nope, skinny houses are actually houses that are built between two previously placed building that are in very close proximity. Let me try again. They squeeze the skinny house in between two houses that are already there. You’ll just have to listen to this episode to see for yourself. But really, they are houses built into a narrow space.
