Google sacks senior software engineer Blake Lemoine after claiming its AI chatbot is a ‘sentient’ being

“It is unfortunate that, despite his long involvement on this issue, Blake continues to choose to persistently violate clear employment and data security policies that include the need to safeguard product information,” a Google spokesman told Reuters. Google’s MDA uses vast amounts of data from the Internet to produce human-like responses to user requests. The tech giant senior software engineer says you can “seamlessly engage with a seemingly endless number of topics.” Mr. Lemoine, who worked at Google for seven years, began interacting with LaMDA as part of his job at the AI ‚Äč‚Äčorganization responsible for the company.

He told The Washington Post that he believed LaMDA was a self-aware person after testing whether he could use discriminatory or hate speech. In April, he shared a document with top company executives titled ‘Is LaMDA Sensitive?’ which included some of her conversations with him. He was placed on administrative leave in June for violating Google’s privacy policy. After news of his firing was first reported by industry newsletter Big Technology, he said he is now considering starting his own AI company to develop better storytelling in video games.

Google has fired a senior software engineer after he claimed the company’s AI chatbot is a “sentient” being. The search engine’s parent company, Alphabet, said that Blake Lemoine’s claims about LaMDA (its language model for dialog applications) are “totally unfounded”.
