According to Fast Company, Facebook engineers discovered the AI’s new language when the bots or agents, named Bob and Alice, appeared to communicate and complete tasks using unintelligible phrases. For instance, Bob said, “I can I I everything else,” to which Alice responded, “Balls have zero to me to me to me,” which makes no sense in the proper English language.

He compared this to humans developing shorthand to make communication simpler. Another scientist from the social media platform’s AI research team, Mike Lewis, stated in a post on Facebook that the project is a crucial step for developers who build bots or agents that can communicate, reason or negotiate. Shutting down Bob and Alice, however, was necessary…
