Threesome chatbot

Zo uses the same technology as Tay – Microsoft's first chatbot which was launched in March last year.Tay was aimed at 18 to-24-year-olds and was designed to improve the firm's understanding of conversational language among young people online.'Agents will drift off understandable language and invent codewords for themselves,' Dhruv Batra, a visiting research scientist from Georgia Tech at Facebook AI Research (FAIR) told Fast co.'Like if I say 'the' five times, you interpret that to mean I want five copies of this item.This isn't so different from the way communities of humans create shorthand.'The programmers had to alter the way the machines learned language to complete their negotiation training.

As part of the learning process they set up two bots, known as a dialog agents, to teach each other about human speech using machine learning algorithms.Facebook's Artificial Intelligence Researchers (Fair) team gave bots this ability by estimating the 'value' of an item and inferring how much that is worth to each party. In some cases, bots 'initially feigned interest in a valueless item, only to later 'compromise' by conceding it -- an effective negotiating tactic that people use regularly,' the researchers said.Up to now, most bots or chatbots have had only the ability to hold short conversations and perform simple tasks like booking a restaurant table.But in the latest code developed by Facebook, bots will be able to dialogue and 'to engage in start-to-finish negotiations with other bots or people while arriving at common decisions or outcomes,' they wrote.The Fair team gave bots this ability by estimating the 'value' of an item and inferring how much that is worth to each party. In some cases, bots 'initially feigned interest in a valueless item, only to later 'compromise' by conceding it - an effective negotiating tactic that people use regularly,' the researchers said.It features 24 hours of battery life and claims to be a 'mini-disco on the move'.
