The Register: Those Stanford whiz kids have done it again. Now a chatty AI bot to negotiate sales for you with Craigslist riffraff

The Register: Those Stanford whiz kids have done it again. Now a chatty AI bot to negotiate sales for you with Craigslist riffraff . “Artificially intelligent bots are notoriously bad at communicating with, well, anything. Conversations with the code, whether it’s between themselves or with people, often go awry, and veer off topic. Grammar goes out the window, and sentences become nonsensical. Remember the time this happened between a pair of Facebook-built chatbots, when they freaked people out so much that folks began to think the software had, supposedly, invented its own language? Well, a group of researchers at Stanford University in the US have figured out how to, in theory, prevent that chaos and confusion from happening.”
