For anyone else who might be interested but doesn't really understand I'll explain a little more about AI in the context of these AI's communications. If you take the example of the chatroom bot from years ago that had a whole bunch of pre written phrases to use, it would initiate conversations with people in the chatroom, so it might start a conversation by saying, Hey baby I'm 22, blonde curvy female and I'm lonely wanna chat with me? So the guy replies and the bot looks for keywords in what he says, and uses one of the phrases coded into it that is relevant to that keyword, so the reply would (hopefully) make sense. Sometimes the bot would initiate the conversation with another bot in the chatroom. The conversation would be amusing as they both used thier pre written phrases. Now, imagine if instead of pre written phrases, you figure out how to code the fundamental rules of language into your bot, the ability to interpret the entire sentence sent to it instead of just looking for keywords, how to learn if what it said made sense based on the response it received and a whole lot more than that. That is over simplifying it I'm sure but you get the idea. The algorithms to do that would be very complex but probably do-able considering how much research has gone into this and the power of today's computers. So now you have your bot that is programmed to do all that, you wanna test it so let's get two of them and let them talk... Of course on modern computers they can send back and forth millions of times per second so whatever they can learn from each other about the use of language can happen very fast. Apparently with unexpected results. So you see, they are still just computer programs. For now. When they program them to write new computer programs to improve their own algorithms and functionality there's no telling where that could end. It might be like giving them evolution.
