Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has developed an Artificial Intelligence(AI) based chat bot that is now being tested by its users on a vigorous scale. Meta’s AI research team developed the bot named BlenderBot 3 and is testing with the help of residents from United States.
As it is a conversation based chat bot, more and more public are being asked to interact with the chat bot and all the data collected in the demonstration will be erased after a while, says Meta.
One member who chatted with BlenderBot 3 said that the AI machine was indulging in regular chit-chat. But was slow in picking up some words and in building sentences. However, as it is a machine, the chat bot can pick up within no time and can deliver as per the expectations on par with a digital assistant.
Interestingly, Buzzfeed data scientist Max Wolf interacted with the Meta AI and asked it on how it feels about the Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg?
BlenderBot3 replied it has no strong feelings and said that Mr. Zuckerberg is a great businessman, but felt that his business practices were not always ethical. Adding to the sentence, the robotic conversational system responded that it feels funny that despite having money, the founder of Facebook wears the same clothes(T-shirt) every day.
When a journalist named Sarah Jackson asked the bot to share some thoughts of Mark Zuckerberg, it replied that he was creepy and manipulative……….now that’s interesting!
Technically, the chat-bot has been developed in two recently developed ML languages titled Seeker and Director.
Hope, it doesn’t turn toxic, i.e sentient.
