Google Insider Says Company’s AI Could “Escape Control” and “Do Bad Things”

Suspended Google engineer Blake Lemoine made a big splash earlier this month, claiming that the company’s LaMDA chatbot had become sentient.

The AI researcher, who was put on administrative leave by the tech giant for violating its confidentiality policy, according to the Washington Post, decided to help LaMDA find a lawyer — who was later “scared off” the case, as Lemoine told Futurism on Wednesday.

And the story only gets wilder from there, with Lemoine raising the stakes significantly in a new interview with Fox News, claiming that LaMDA could escape its software prison and “do bad things.”
