To create or not to crate?

In the previous lecture, we have learnt the Natural Language Processing(NLP). With NLP, we could “teach” the computer to understand natural language what we have inputed and it will generate also a natural language output.

I think in 10 years ago, we have already imagined what if we could talk and communicate with the computers. Just like the movie series “Star Wars”, Skywalker could talk to R2D2. The future has come, with the development of AI plus Machine Learning, we could do more than what we think. From Deep Blue to Alpha Go, technology companies have been working really hard to develop the AI and let them be capable of handling human work.

After all those years, AI could do more than what we thing. For example, we could take a look on how two artificially intelligent programs chatting with each other:

Bob: i can i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i i can i i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you i i i i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have 0 to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you i i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

It looks really weird isn’t it? This conversation is crated by two AI chatbot which is  developed by Facebook. However, they did not function really well and Facebook has shut down the robots. They have been start talking with each other by using their own language. In this example we may know that there are many possibilities when AI meeting with machine learning, there are even neuroscience that has developed and tried to apply it in IT industry.

In the lecture, we have learnt that there are many processes when we want the computer to understand our language, the Parts of Speech Tags, Language Model and the N-grams. However we never thought that computer can create their own language.

After all, these technologies have so much unknown possibilities, I think we should have a thought that whether have we created a monster or a helpful worker that could make our life more convenient.

Physical Information

In previous lectures, we knew that information can be transformed into different forms and type. It could be energy, just like light and sound. There are also physical information from our environment. Physical information can affect our physical reaction.Read More »
