Facebook created an AI system that is able to understand the theory of the mind. Noam Brown is a researcher at Facebook AI, and he spoke about the theory of mind, “The theory of mind is the idea of understanding the beliefs and intentions of other agents or other players or humans.” He also notes that this is something that humans are easily able to understand, however, AI systems have struggled to understand this concept in the past.
This means that Facebook's AI system is groundbreaking, as it is able to address one of the consistent limitations that are observed across AI systems. Facebook's research could have huge implications for the future uses of AI systems, as they could now be able to potentially understand the motivations of third parties.
