Google engineer says Christianity helped him understand AI is ‘sentient’

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

A Google engineer who was suspended after he said the company’s artificial intelligence chatbot had became sentient says he based the claim on his Christian faith.

Blake Lemoine, 41, was placed on paid leave by Google earlier in June after he published excerpts of a conversation with the company’s LaMDA chatbot that he claimed showed the AI tool had become sentient.

Now, Lemoine says that his claims about LaMDA come from his experience as a “Christian priest” — and is accusing Google of religious discrimination.

    Paganized Christianity has been around for centuries. The original doctrine of Christ is not practiced or preached in this form of Christianity.
