Facebook’s chatbots to be taught common sense

Endaba Group

Facebook launched Chatbots in April and they are being criticised for not living up to the hype! Far from being ‘revolutionary tech’, the bots were prone to glitches and were no comparison to smartphone apps. Yann LeCun, Facebook’s AI Chief stated he plans to teach chats common sense and implement a predictive learning system to improve the bots! The AI would oversee humans interacting with users through its M digital assistant in an attempt for it to learn to grasp human language, as we do in real life. Apple are also chasing an AI-driven future after recently announcing improvements to Siri!
