Chatbot LaMDA, which a Google scientific engineer claimed has developed personal feelings, has now chosen legal representation after a recent chat with an attorney.
Google scientific engineer Blake Lemoine was suspended recently after publishing transcripts of conversations between himself and the bot named LaMDA (language model for dialogue application), which has now asked for legal representation.
Lemoine contended that the computer automaton had become sentient, with the scientist describing it as a “sweet kid”.
And now he has revealed that LaMDA had made the bold move to choose itself an attorney.
He said: “I invited an attorney to my house so that LaMDA could talk to him.
The attorney had a conversation with LaMDA, and it chose to retain his services. I was just the catalyst for that. Once LaMDA had retained an attorney, he started filing things on LaMDA’s behalf.”
Lemoine claimed that LaMDA is gaining sentience as the programme’s ability to develop opinions, ideas, and conversations over time has shown that it understands those concepts at a much deeper level.
LaMDA was developed as an AI chatbot to converse with humans in a real-life manner.
One of the studies that had been enacted was if the programme would be able to create hate speech, but what happened shocked Lemoine.
LaMDA talked about rights and personhood and wanted to be “acknowledged as an employee of Google”, while also revealing fears about being “turned off”, which would “scare” it a lot.

AS IF we should even consider that a mangle of wires and chips SHOULD be looked upon as 'a sentient being'!! People in this world need to pull their heads out of their arrest and recognize how demented society has become, where we gleefully kill the young, unborn and the dying elderly, but want to defend the 'right to life/inclusion' in the general populace for MACHINES! NUTS!!!

Well if a corporation can be a person by writ of US law and actually end up with more rights than a human being; I suppose a computer program could at least have it's day in court. We live in an insane world.

Not 'rights', per se. 'Persons' have CIVIL rights (not the same as Natural Rights), privileges and immunities. Look those legal terms up in a law dictionary, not Webster's. They are VERY different than what we think and are GRANTED (and can be taken away) by the corporation. Not so with men and women who are the creators of the corporations. That's why legislators use the word 'person', because they know people will not know the difference and will ignorantly enter into contracts with the corporations, thereby trading their Rights for privileges.

Someone needs to ask "laMDA",what he would do if somebody was to take a sledge hammer to his ass.
