It took just one weekend for Meta's new AI Chatbot to become racist

Mashable

Just when you think life online can't get worse than it already is, Meta steps in to prove you wrong. The company's new BlenderBot 3 AI chatbot -- which was released in the U.S. just days ago on Friday, August 5 -- is already making a host of false statements based on interactions it had with real humans online. Some of the more egregious among those include claims Donald Trump won the 2020 U.S. presidential election and is currently president, anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, as well as comments calling out Facebook for all of its "fake news." This, despite being owned by the company formerly known as Facebook. Meta's BlenderBot 3 can search the internet to talk with humans about nearly anything, unlike past versions of the chatbot.


How Revolutionary Are Meta's AI Efforts?

#artificialintelligence

Mark Zuckerberg introduced Facebook's rebranding to Meta at the company's annual Connect event last year to reposition the company for the "new internet," the metaverse. The metaverse has been around for some time as a kind of urban legend, perhaps aptly described in the 2011 science fantasy book Ready Player One. That was until some of the biggest names in tech started investing heavily in related technologies, including virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI). Today AI is one of the most exciting technology fields to work on. Zuckerberg said the metaverse is something he's wanted to work on since even before the conception of Facebook.

Last Week in AI #177: OpenAI commercializes DALL-E 2, Sony AI beats human competitors in racing game, Gmail getting smarter searches, and more!

#artificialintelligence

Last week OpenAI moved DALL-E 2, the image generation tool, into Beta (the company hopes to expand its current user base to 1 million) while granting users the "the right to reprint, sell, and merchandise" images they generate with DALL-E. This is useful for users who wish to use the generated images for commercial purposes, like making illustrations for children's books. Other openly available AI image generation models face similar problems. Also, it's not clear if OpenAI violated any IP laws for just training on these Internet images and then commercializing their model. While the UK is exploring allowing commercial use of models trained on public but trademarked data, the U.S. may not follow suit.
