Facebook has begun rolling out its new chatbot platform on Messenger, and it's available to try out right now.
The long-awaited 'Bot Platform' was unveiled by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the first day of the F8 developer conference, and the company hopes it's going to change the way we all use the web.
The bots that help teams run more efficiently in Slack aren’t trying to pass as human.
There are exceptions–bots built with Toy Talk’s Pull platform, for instance, put an emphasis on personality–but in most cases, the relationship is transactional, and pleasantries are an afterthought.
It may seem paradoxical, but this shift away from humanity might be what finally allows chatbots to succeed.
In 1966, long before Hoffer and his colleagues created Smarter Child, an MIT computer scientist named Joseph Weizenbaum published ELIZA, a program for mimicking human conversation.
'” The language evolved as the researchers introduced tougher tasks, with the robots eventually learning to work together by composing sentences comprising multiple words.As the language continues to develop and grow more and more complex, the researchers hope to build a translator bot capable of translating their communications for humans.“We hope that this research into growing a language will let us develop machines that have their own language tied to their own lived experience,” concludes the Open AI post.The team used a technique called reinforcement learning, presenting the challenges as cooperative rather than competitive, and rewarding the robots for completing them.“We've just released initial results in which we teach AI agents to create language by dropping them into a set of simple worlds, giving them the ability to communicate, and then giving them goals that can be best achieved by communicating with other agents,” wrote the Open AI team in a blog post.The critically unloved 1999 film Bicentennial Man seems like an odd turning point in the evolution of chatbots, but for Robert Hoffer, Robin Williams’s performance as an intelligent robot was an inspiration.“I wanted to build that, you know?
