Google fired an engineer who said that its AI was sentient


    Google has dismissed the developer who claimed that an unreleased AI system had become sentient, citing violations of employment and data security regulations.

    Blake Lemoine, a software engineer at Google, said that after exchanging thousands of messages with LaMDA, a conversation technology, it had reached a level of consciousness.

    Google said that the engineer had been put on leave in June. The company said it only said Lemoine’s claims were “wholly unfounded” after giving them a lot of thought. It was said that he had been working at Alphabet for seven years. Google said in a statement that it is “very serious” about developing AI and is committed to “responsible innovation.”
