Straight from a Sci-Fi Movie: Google Suspends Engineer For Sounding Alarm On The Company’s Dangerous ‘Sentient’ AI LaMDA Robot

STL commentary: This is frankly terrifying! A computer, a man-made “brain” capable of reason and logic, but without conscience, without God-given moralality, that developes self-awareness and thus innate self-preservation instinct? How does this not end up pitting AI vs humanity itself?

And these people want AI to run the world? If AI is sentient, if it acquires “personhood” without a soul, just imagine what a legion of demons could do with that!–(End STL commentary)

A Google engineer was placed on administrative leave after sounding the alarm on the company’s “sentient” AI robot. Software engineer Blake Lemoine, an employee with Google’s Responsible AI organization began testing Google’s artificial intelligence tool LaMDA — Language Model for Dialogue Application — in the fall of 2021. While testing whether the computer program could…
