    Facebook has abandoned an artificial intelligence experiment after two of its robots began talking to each other in their own language.

    The social media giant says researchers shut down the so-called chatbots because they wanted them to be able to speak to people.

    The move comes during heightened concerns about the direction of artificial intelligence.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Los Angeles.
