Popular AI chatbot Lee Luda is REMOVED from Facebook after being accused of bigotry

Amazon isn't the only tech giant whose artificial intelligence has developed a mind of its own. 

Last July, Facebook shut down a controversial chatbot experiment after the two AIs developed their own language to talk to each other.

The social media platform was experimenting with teaching two chatbots, Alice and Bob, how to negotiate with one another. 

But the researchers discovered that the bots had deviated from the script and were inventing new phrases without any human input. 

As part of the learning process they set up two bots, known as a dialog agents, to teach each other about human speech using machine learning algorithms.

The bots were originally left alone to develop their conversational skills.

Like Amazon, Facebook has encountered some creepy errors with its AI tech. Last year, the social media giant's chatbots Alice and Bob were left alone as part of an experiment by researchers. When they returned, the bots had developed their own language

When the experimenters returned, they found that the AI software had begun to deviate from normal speech.  

Instead, they were using a brand new language created without any input from their human supervisors. 

Below is part of a transcript of the Facebook bots conversation:

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

Bob: i i can i i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to
