You can now test LaMDA artificial intelligence from Google, which seemed conscious to one of the company’s employees. Anyone interested can sign up in the AI Test Kitchen and get access to the AI beta.
LaMDA is an artificial intelligence that analyzes human speech and recognizes commands in it. Voice assistants Siri and Alexa work on a similar principle, as well as the technology for creating subtitles in real time.
It will be possible to experiment with LaMDA in a controlled environment. It is now being made available within several managed demos. Starting last week, AI was opened to a limited number of Android users. In the coming weeks, it will also be available on iOS.
“he first demo, “Imagine It,” lets you name a place and offers paths to explore your imagination. With the “List It” demo, you can share a goal or topic, and LaMDA will break it down into a list of helpful subtasks. And in the “Talk About It (Dogs Edition)” demo, you can have a fun, open-ended conversation about dogs and only dogs, which explores LaMDA’s ability to stay on topic even if you try to veer off-topic,” says a Google blog post.
Although the AI has been rigorously tested, the model may still have some flaws, as the Google team warns. The developers hope that beta testing will help make LaMDA even better.
