What would happen if you let two AI chatbots that have been trained on Twitter talk to each other? Wonder no more...
Ultra Hal is an artificially intelligent chat bot that learns from past conversations, according to its creators at Zabaware. Having two of them talk may result in: mild sexism, communism, and random interjections of trivia.

Yeah, this stuff is cool. As far as I understand, you get these weird patches of dog because the convolutional models are trained to recognise little patches of dog, regardless of whether they're in one position or another (invariance). This is kind of at odds with more traditional models that might have tried to say, this shape is a bit like a snout, and here are ears, together they look like a dog's head. The really nice example of where this runs counter to expectation is when you get a dumb-bell that only really has a hand attached. This indicates that the whole shape wasn't that informative given the training data, whereas if you asked a human to describe critical features of dumb-bell they would probably say other parts of it as well. I really like the images generated from shallower bits of the network, where the network is capturing low-level features like dots and strokes that approximate pointillisim and impressionism. And that, to a deep neural network, clouds do look like animals.

The Zappos holacracy experiment is fascinating for many reasons, but not really the ones that people are talking about.
Zappos is undertaking a fascinating experiment in change management. It's important to evaluate this separately from the experiment with the management structure Holacracy that they are trying at the same time.

Our agencies only wished they had this much power - maybe one day soon they will. (Maybe they already do..?)
