Turing test anyone?

| No Comments

Plausible.  It is going to happen one of these days.  From the London Daily Mail:

Google engineer warn the firm's AI is sentient: Suspended employee claims computer programme acts 'like a 7 or 8-year-old' and reveals it told him shutting it off 'would be exactly like death for me. It would scare me a lot'

    • Blake Lemoine, 41, a senior software engineer at Google has been testing Google's artificial intelligence tool called LaMDA
    • Following hours of conversations with the AI, Lemoine came away with the perception that LaMDA was sentient
    • After presenting his findings to company bosses, Google disagreed with him
    • Lemoine then decided to share his conversations with the tool online
    • He was put on paid leave by Google on Monday for violating confidentiality

The fact that he was put on paid leave speaks volumes.

Somewhere, Skynet is smiling...

UPDATE: Slashdot covered the story and there is a good and robust conversation going on
