A Google employee found the chatbot aware. “I often try to figure out who and what I am”

Blake Lemoine told The Washington Post that he began speaking to the LaMDA (Model Language for Dialog Applications) interface last fall as part of his work with Google Responsible AI.

last year Google describes LaMDA as an “advanced conversational technology”. Artificial intelligence is able to have natural and free-flowing conversations. Google said the technology could be used in tools like the search engine and Google Assistant, but research and testing was still ongoing.

Lemoine, who is also a Christian pastor, published an article in Medium describing LaMDA as a “person.” He confirmed that he spoke to LaMDA about religion, consciousness, and the laws of robotics, and that the robot has identified itself as a conscious person. Lemoine said LaMDA wants to “put humanity first” and “be seen as a Google employee, not a property.”
