A mesura que s’acostumaven a parlar l’un amb l’altre, aquests dos bots van anar perfilant un llenguatge privat. Ja només s’entenien entre ells i per tant no passaven el test de Turing, ni servien per a gran cosa.

When Facebook directed two of these semi-intelligent bots to talk to each other, FastCo reported, the programmers realized they had made an error by not incentivizing the chatbots to communicate according to human-comprehensible rules of the English language. In their attempts to learn from each other, the bots thus began chatting back and forth in a derived shorthand—but while it might look creepy, that’s all it was.
