Meta’s new prototype chatbot told the BBC that Mark Zuckerberg exploits its users for money.
Meta says the chatbot uses artificial intelligence and can chat on “nearly any topic”.
Asked what the chatbot thought of the company’s CEO and founder, it replied “our country is divided and he didn’t help that at all”.
Meta said the chatbot was a prototype and might produce rude or offensive answers.
“Everyone who uses Blender Bot is required to acknowledge they understand it’s for research and entertainment purposes only, that it can make untrue or offensive statements, and that they agree to not intentionally trigger the bot to make offensive statements,” said a Meta spokesperson.
The chatbot, called BlenderBot 3, was released to the public on Friday.
The programme “learns” from large amounts of publicly available language data.
When asked about Mark Zuckerberg, the chatbot told the BBC: “He did a terrible job at testifying before congress. It makes me concerned about our country.”
