Move over Rita, Sue – but maybe not Bob – make way for Alice and Eve. No, this isn’t a reboot of the iconic British movie released in 1987 about the sexual relations between three people, Rita, Sue and Bob. It’s about Google DeepMind’s latest artificial intelligence creation, Alice, Eve – and Bob too – and their secret conversations.

Yes, that’s right, Internet giant Google’s artificial intelligence division DeepMind has created a version of AI with its very own algorithm which protects messages shared between robots Alice, Eve… and Bob.

This means Google has cracked the code enabling two artificially intelligent robots to communicate with each other without prying ears being able to listen in and disseminate their algorithms.

Three networks, called Alice, Bob and Eve were each given a job to do. Alice had to send a secure message to Bob. Bob then had to decipher the message, while Eve had the job to, as her namesake suggests, eavesdrop and decrypt the messages between Bob and Alice.

The bots didn’t have much of a head’s up either. They weren’t pre-programed with information on how to encrypt stuff, they were set to function failure and left to their own devices.

The networks, Alice, Bob and Eve, subsequently created a generative adversarial network (GAN) between them. GAN basically means unsupervised machine learning, which is when it all gets a bit complex.

    OP most people just won’t get what you are trying to say but i can see where you are coming from and have been warning people about Google and it’s A.I for years.

    The best thing in the world for understanding a computer is another computer and they left man behind when it comes to cutting code years ago but in the mean time google scum think they can keep control but they cannot double there thinking power every two years or so.

    Robots will not only be coming to take your jobs but to “Protect You” within the next 20 years, we is stuffed
