Google has a sense of artificial intelligence (AI). Blake Lemoine, the company’s engineer, made such a claim last month. But Google says that Blake’s claim has no basis. Blake is fired. BBC news
Blake presented a new theory about Google’s language technology. He said that the Language Model for Dialog Applications (Lambda) technology developed by Google is sensitive. So it should be respected. But his theory is denied by the Google authority itself. Apart from this, experts in the field of artificial intelligence also refused to accept the issue of artificial intelligence. Blake was fired by Google on Friday. Blake admitted that he had been served with legal notice.
According to a statement from Google, there is no basis for Blake Lemoine’s claim about Lambda. Google has been working with Blake for months to clear up the issue. But Blake broke job rules and safety policies.
Regarding Lambda, Google claims that it is a breakthrough technology. It can carry on the conversation freely. They use it as a program to build chatbots.
As Blake claimed last month, lambdas appear to have human-like sentience and consciousness. His comments made headlines in various media. Experts in the field of artificial intelligence started discussing this.
Blake Lemoine worked on Google’s Responsible AI team.
Lambda, he claims, can continue conversations about religion, emotion and fear by showing self-awareness.
From this he infers that a sentient mind is behind Lambda’s phenomenal conversational skills.
Blake Lemoine then brought forward a conversation he and another man had with Lambda as evidence.
Google’s statement also said that they take the development of responsible AI very seriously. Any officer’s concerns about the organization’s technology are reviewed extensively. Lambda has been reviewed 11 times.
However, Blake Lemoine did not bring forward the awareness of Google’s AI technology alone. Earlier last month, another Google official told the British magazine Economist the same thing.
