Mark Zuckerberg has informed us a while ago that Facebook is working on developing an artificial intelligence that can converse with social network users on Messenger. It’s possible however that it could do more than that.
In a post on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg said the old Chinese game “Go” is one of the last games in which the best players in the world can still beat even the most advanced AI.
Because Zuckerberg really “cares” about people, he gathered a team to build the best AI in the world and probably the first to smoothly beat the best human players at the famous Chinese game.
According to his post, it seems that scientists are trying for 20 years to build an AI that can win a Go game, but failed. Zuckerberg is bragging that he managed to do in a year what others did in twenty years: Facebook researchers have managed to build an AI that can make moves on the game board in 0.1 seconds, which is as fast as other artificial intelligence who have taken 20 years to be developed.
Facebook artificial intelligence operates on a unique principle of searching for solutions that shape every possible move during the course of the game. At the same time, the AI will always follow the pattern and will try to develop new strategies.
It is yet unclear if the AI developed by Zuckerberg is somehow related to “Facebook M”, the artificial intelligence developed for Messenger. It remains to see exactly why Facebook is developing a “calculator ” that can play Go.
