Facebook Training AI Bots to Negotiate with Humans – News Center

See how Facebook used #GPUs + #AI to train bots to negotiate and compromise with humans.

  • In a new blog post, Facebook explains how existing chatbots can hold short conversations and perform simple tasks such as booking a restaurant – but building machines that can hold meaningful conversations with people is challenging because it requires a bot to combine its understanding of the conversation with its knowledge of the world, and then produce a new sentence that helps it achieve its goals.
  • To help build their training set, the team created an interface with multi-issue bargaining scenarios and crowdsourced humans on Amazon Mechanical Turk to negotiate in natural language to divide a random set of objects.
  • The models were trained end-to-end from the language and decisions that humans made, meaning that the approach can easily be adapted to other tasks.
  • Reinforcement learning was then used to reward the model when it achieved a good outcome which prevents the AI bot from developing its own language.
  • In their experiments, majority of the people didn’t know they were talking to a bot and FAIR’s best reinforcement learning negotiation agent matched the performance of human negotiators – achieving better deals about as often as worse deals.

Researchers at Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) published a paper introducing AI-based dialog agents that can negotiate and compromise.

Thinking Machines: 7 of the Best Books on Artificial Intelligence

Thinking Machines: 7 of the Best Books on Artificial Intelligence

  • & &

    Decades ago, if you were writing about robots, it was probably in one of two forms: either a science fiction narrative, or something short about the handful of robots that could be purchased for home or recreational use.

  • Home devices can recognize and respond to speech, prosthetic technology has been dramatically advanced, and our very understanding of what constitutes a robot has significantly changed.
  • With these advances in technology have come other questions, some pertaining to the nature of intelligence, some relating to the lines between humanity and machines, and still more that use our research into robotics to explore what makes us human.
  • So, with that in mind, here’s a look at a handful of the best books on artificial intelligence, dealing with questions of robots, body modification, the Singularity, and more.
  • Crank up Flight of the Conchords’s song set after a robot uprising and dig in.

The world’s best poker bot is learning, now crushing humanity again

The world's best #poker bot is learning, now crushing humanity again #AI #MachineLearning

  • The world’s best poker bot is learning, now crushing humanity again
  • Teaching AI poker could have significance outside of the poker world (although it has already transformed how humans play poker ).
  • For a few days, it looked like the humans had it figured out .
  • AI will likely have beaten humans on another competition .
  • By the end of day 10, it was up a likely insurmountable $677,000, with all of the humans down six figures. (You can see the latest ).

“Libratus’s algorithms runs all the time on the supercomputer, so the supercomputer keeps outputting improved strategies every day.”

Google Is Making AI That Can Make More AI

Google Is Making #AI That Can Make More AI

  • What’s more, using AIs to build more AIs may also increase the speed at which new AIs can be made.
  • Once you’ve trained an AI to accomplish a certain goal, you can’t necessarily crack it open and see how it is doing it.
  • The downside is that AI building more AIs sure seems like it’s inviting a runaway cascade and, eventually, Skynet.
  • Google Is Making AI That Can Make More AI
  • The lab is reportedly building AI software that can build more AI software , with the goal of making future AI cheaper and easier.

There’s no way this could go wrong.

Artificial Intelligence for Submersible Drones

NASA JPL Researches Artificial Intelligence for Submersible Drones

  • NASA JPL Researches Artificial Intelligence for Submersible Drones
  • The drones also sensed how the ocean actively changed around them.
  • “Autonomous drones are important for ocean research, but today’s drones don’t make decisions on the fly,” said Steve Chien, one of the research team’s members.
  • NASA has announced that a team of researchers from its Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) and other institutions recently visited Monterey Bay, California as part of ongoing research into developing artificial intelligence for submersible drones.
  • A fleet of six coordinated drones was used to study Monterey Bay.
