And we crave more pixels, pixels talking to us, responding to us, acknowledging us—as often as possible.“It’s just a reality that social life is moving through screens,” says Eric Klinenberg, director of the Institute for Public Knowledge at NYU and the author of .
“There’s research showing that people who stay off of social media are more prone to isolation because they’re missing out on the place where the action is.”At any moment in time, that action could stall out.
Another study at Open AI found that artificial intelligence could be encouraged to create a language, making itself more efficient and better at communicating as it did so.

But doing it through a website never really felt right.”Once SMS and app-based shopping services such as Magic and Alfred became trendy, the team decided a text-message chat bot was the way to go.

They would, for instance, pretend to be very interested in one specific item – so that they could later pretend they were making a big sacrifice in giving it up, according to a paper published by FAIR. (Researchers did not shut down the programs because they were afraid of the results or had panicked, as has been suggested elsewhere, but because they were looking for them to behave differently.) The chatbots also learned to negotiate in ways that seem very human. "And beyond that, it's unclear that this process yields a system with the kind of word, phrase, and sentence structures characteristic of human languages." The company chose to shut down the chats because "our interest was having bots who could talk to people", researcher Mike Lewis told Fast Co. This isn’t so different from the way communities of humans create shorthands.” "In the first place, it's entirely text-based, while human languages are all basically spoken (or gestured), with text being an artificial overlay," he wrote on his blog.
