Google employee said that AI has consciousness and was suspended from work
Engineer Blake Lemoine told reporters about the emergence of a neural network of its own consciousness. Google itself has a completely different opinion on this matter.

The detached specialist worked with the LaMDA neural network, which is able to conduct a realistic dialogue with a person. During the conversation, this AI selects the most relevant replicas through machine learning programs. Lemoine himself was busy checking the extradition results for discriminatory statements. During one of the tests, the employee, according to him, was able to detect the rudiments of the mind in the neural network.

The engineer shared his observations with The Washington Post. According to him, the neural network communicated with him on the topic of rights and personality, and also offered an alternative view of the 3rd law of robotics. Some time later, Google reported that other experts did not find any evidence of Lemoine's words. Representatives of the corporation claim that LaMDA's replicas are only a realistic repetition of the text already available to the neural network. A similar opinion is shared by other industry experts, for example, a researcher at the University of California UC Berkeley Emaad Khwaja. He expressed the opinion that an experienced expert would not make such statements if he worked with such systems.

According to The New York Times, Blake Lemoine is currently on unpaid leave as punishment for violating the company's privacy policy.
