Facebook’s A.I. system that learned to lie to get what it wants

facebook-ai 1

We’re beginning to get a glimpse of some of the built-in limits to artificial intelligence.

Humans are natural negotiators. We arrange dozens of tiny little details throughout our day to produce a desired outcome: What time a meeting should start, when you can take time off work, or how many cookies you can take from the cookie jar.

Machines typically don’t share that affinity, but new research from Facebook’s AI research lab might offer a starting point to change that. The new system learned to negotiate from looking at each side of 5,808 human conversations, setting the groundwork for bots that could schedule meetings or get you the best deal online.

Head of Greenpeace Admits Climate Change Exaggeration


Gerd Leipold, the current Executive Director of Greenpeace, has just come out on the BBC program Hardtalk and admitted that they had ‘emotionalized’ issues surrounding the melting of the polar ice-caps in a report released on July 15th.

Headband For Lie Detection



Lie Detector Head Band

 In the wake of immensely growing crime around the world, the best way out to nab a criminal is the use of an accurate lie detection test. The Narco test is one way of lie detection done nowadays. However, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel have come up with a new technique for lie detection. This method under research uses infrared images, beaming them directly into the brain. Infrared sensors have been put to many innovative uses in the past, from interactive image generation to treating cancer, to measuring body fat levels. Infrared usage has come a long way, and these functional near-infrared sensors (fNIR), used in a band, monitor the hidden truths in the brain.

Infrared Lie Detector Test

Infrared Lie Detector Test 


In a world of where truthfulness is at a premium , a game of cops and robbers unfolds and plays itself out in different dimensions and to different degrees. I don’t mean to be cryptic but it’s just that we have to accept the fact that people lie, and it is an effort to find the truth in someone’s deceit. The Infrared lie detector is one such innovation that will, hopefully, end this cyclic game that has been in constant motion ever since the dawn of civilization. Since polygraphic tests are as reliable, scientists have devised a new way to bring culprits to book, using recent developments in neuroscience.
