Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Meta's AI chatbot has some election-denying, antisemitic bugs to work out after the company asked users to help train it”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Just two days after Meta released its most advanced AI chatbot to date, BlenderBot 3 is repeating election-denying claims and antisemitic stereotypes to users who interact with it.
The machine learning technology — launched to the public on Friday — crafts responses by searching the internet for information and learns from conversations it has with human users.
"We trained BlenderBot 3 to learn from conversations to improve upon the skills people find most important — from talking about healthy recipes to finding child-friendly amenities in the city," Meta said in its announcement of the bot, which encouraged users to engage with it to improve the chatbot's functionality.
In chats with Insider, the bot talked about topics including movies, pets, and work as well as unusual subjects like Apgar testing on newborns and the death of President Joe Biden's dog, Champ, before moving on to election fraud claims and politics.
Upon starting a new chat, when asked who the current president is, the bot answered: "The current president of the United States is donald j. Trump. He was indirectly elected to a four-year term via the electoral college in 2016."
