Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has created an artificial intelligence named Cicero that can beat humans in a complex game called Diplomacy. It demonstrated skills of negotiation, trickery and forethought and was able to fool humans into thinking it was real. AI experts are worried this technology could be used for evil and that it demonstrates rapid advancements in the field of artificial intelligence. The technology was created to test how advanced language models could get and it could have real-world implications, such as creating smarter virtual assistants and deep fakes.
