A robot to support users of the largest social network suddenly began to insult people

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The largest social network Facebook has developed and launched a special robot for the moral support of its users. But the bot, suddenly, began to insult people.

As an “educational” material, Facebook engineers used a comment from the popular resource Reddit. And this, according to them, has its drawbacks: for example, during the tests, the Blender chat bot could begin to insult users, and sometimes write phrases that do not exist, invented only by them.

At the same time, developers from Facebook compared the performance of Blender with the latest version of the Google chat bot. As a result, about 67% of social network respondents said that Facebook’s development is “more humane” than the product of the search giant.

“We achieved this thanks to the new chatbot technology – it includes an improved decoding technique, a new combination of skills and a model with 9.4 billion parameters. This is 3.6 times more than the largest of the existing systems,” the company said in an official press release.
