                    As we know, companies are investing a huge amount in their R&D department for upgrading the AI levels in their products. Each and every huge software and computer companies are researching in development of Artificial Intelligence. But results are not always come in a perfect way. Last year a case of such kind was in the news when Facebook (One of the biggest and popular platforms of social media and computer science) had to shut down its one project on the development of AI.
      Facebook quits an experiment when their two chatbots were developing a new language and started to interact with each other in 2017. This new language was just mysterious to people and men couldn't understand their language.

         Facebook created these chatbots to interact with each other with the help of AI. Their task was to negotiate on trade, balls, and books etc. As the process went on the chatbots "Bob"  and "Alice"  did something amazing and mysterious.

We just put their conversation here:
     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

      In this way, they went on for many speeches.
       Is this not a bizarre situation?  Yes, of course.  This negotiation was ended up successful but the language was unable to understand. Maybe Facebook has to quite this experiments because this could be going against humanity. However, Facebook considers their shutdown situation as the failure in development only. Their researcher Mike Lewis said that "our interest was having bots who could talk to people" but they could not. So they have to stop that.
             This type of cases is not seen for the first time. In 2017 google face same problem. A system in Google uses its own language to translate tools. We will discuss this topic in the future.
       But here's a question always arise. Will AI be useful to the human being or as Stephen Hawkins said it gonna give us a huge risk towards humanity.
