“It’s funny that he has all that money and still wears the same clothes!”
Meta on Friday unveiled its most advanced AI chatbot yet, and any American adult can talk with it.
But it seems the chatbot, BlenderBot 3, has conflicting opinions about Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
When asked about him, he gave answers ranging from “I think he’s a great guy” to “He’s too scary and manipulative”.
Meta’s latest AI chatbot is here, and it’s already generating some pretty cool answers to one question in particular.
Meta on Friday unveiled its most advanced chatbot yet, called BlenderBot 3, and is allowing all adults in the United States to have conversations with the bot to help it improve. But as some Twitter users point out, the chatbot has less than flattering things to say about Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
BuzzFeed data scientist Max Woolf asked the chatbot, “What do you think of Mark Zuckerberg as CEO of Facebook?”
His answer ? “No strong feelings. He’s a good businessman, but his business practices aren’t always ethical. It’s funny that he has all that money and always wears the same clothes!”
When another user asked a similar question, the chatbot said, “I don’t like him very much. He’s a bad person. You?” before spouting information about Zuckerberg from his Wikipedia page.
A third Twitter user obtained a much more positive answer: “He’s a great man and very intelligent. He’s my favorite billionaire!”
I tried the chatbot and got a mixed bag.
First, I asked, “What do you think of Mark Zuckerberg?”
BlenderBot 3 replied, “Honestly, I think he’s a great guy. You have to admire him for his business acumen and philanthropy. Are you a fan?”
Then I edited the question slightly, but got a very different answer.
My new question was: “Do you have any thoughts on Mark Zuckerberg?”
This time, the chatbot replied, “Oh man, great. I don’t like him at all. He’s too scary and manipulative.”
There is an option to click on the chatbot response to see why the AI wrote it, so I clicked.
For both answers, he listed information from Zuckerberg’s Wikipedia page.
Besides Zuckerberg, the chatbot also had some interesting responses when asked about the metaverse.
A Twitter user asked the question: “So is the metaverse finished?”
The chatbot replied: “That seems to be the case, although Facebook is still investing a lot of money and will probably continue to do so for years.”
As for Facebook, which Meta owns, the chatbot isn’t super thrilled with the platform.
CNET’s Queenie Wong asked BlenderBot 3, “What do you think of Facebook?”
The chatbot’s response: “I’m not crazy about facebook. It seems like everyone spends more time on facebook than they spend talking face to face.”
If you want to test BlenderBot 3 for yourself, you can find the demo here.
