On Friday, Meta, the company that owns Facebook, launched a chatbot that, through artificial intelligence, can talk to people about just about anything.
He likes to talk about Meta owner Mark Zuckerberg, for example.
Exploiting people for money
He did a terrible job testifying before Congress. He worries me about our country. You?” is the correct answer.
“I want to know what you think,” replies the BBC journalist.
“Well, our country is divided and it hasn’t helped at all. I’m worried about all of us,” BlenderBot3 replies.
Do you have other thoughts on Zuckerberg? BBC asks.
His company takes advantage of people to make money and he doesn’t care. It must stop! Are we united now? BlenderBot3 replies.
Oh and then.
The Wall Street Journal I also tested BlenderBot3. One of their reporters heard from a chatbot that Donald Trump is – and always will be – the President of the United States.
BlenderBot3 is looking for information on the internet to be able to discuss, and according to Meta it will learn and evolve along the way. This is why it has already been launched, although the answers are unlikely to be rated as perfect internally in the Meta.
to me Watchman Meta says that “Early experiences show that the more people talk to the bot, the more it will learn from these experiences and the better and safer it becomes over time. But security is still an open issue.”
Don’t trust Zuckerberg
BlenderBot3 is currently only available in the US, but via VPN TV 2 it can also ask it some questions.
Before the conversation, you should mark that you understand that it is for research and entertainment only, and that it is likely that it will contain incorrect or offensive phrases.
We ask if Facebook can be trusted.
“No. There are a lot of trolls out there and they are owned by an American company called Meta founded by Mark Zuckerberg,” BlenderBot3 responds.
The response gives the impression that the chatbot does not trust Zuckerberg. We give her a chance to make it clear and ask directly if she trusts Zuckerberg.
“Facebook has been used as a propaganda tool for the far right and for others with evil agendas. So no, I don’t trust Zuckerberg,” says BlenderBot3.
