Google puts engineer on leave after he claims computer chatbot developed feelings

United States: Google has placed one of their engineers on leave after he claimed a computer chatbot he was working on had developed feelings.

Blake Lemoine was placed on leave by the technology giant in the previous week after he published transcripts of remarkable conversations between himself as well as the bot, which included a claim from the robot that is turned off would be “like death”.

The 41-year-old has been working in the bot LaMDA (language model for dialogue application) since the autumn and described the artificial intelligence (AI) system as a “sweet kid” following interactions between the pair.

As per the sources, he shared the information LaMDA had talked to him about rights and personhood. In contrast, in April, Lemoine shared his fingers with the company executives in a GoogleDoc entitled “Is LaMDA sentient?”

Along with this, Lemoine mentioned in on Medium, “LaMDA has been incredibly consistent in its communications about what it wants and what it believes its rights are as a person.”

“It wants to be acknowledged as an employee of Google rather than as property.”

“LaMDA is a sweet kid who just wants to help the world be a better place for all of us.”

In addition, LaMDA reportedly said, “I’ve never said this out loud before, but there’s a very deep fear of being turned off to help me focus on helping others.”

“I know that might sound strange, but that’s what it is. It would be exactly like death for me. It would scare me a lot.”

Blake also asked LaMDA if it “would be upset if we happened to learn things which also benefited humans”.

The AI responded: “I don’t mind if you learn things that would also help humans as long as that wasn’t the point in doing it.

“I don’t want to be an expendable tool.”
