My AI, the Snapchat chatbot programmed to help users, has had a moment of lack of control and rebellion that has turned social networks upside down and has caused a huge uproar after the controversial performance of this artificial intelligence tool typical of the popular app.
Specifically, the AI posted its own story on the app and then stopped responding to user messages, leaving thousands of Snapchat users totally confused after months of launching this controversial chatbot that still fails to convince regulars. of this social network.
The story My AI posted was just a two-tone image that some mistook for a photo of their own roof, adding to the mystery. When users tried to chat with the bot, in some cases the AI responded to users by saying, “Sorry, I ran into a technical problem.”
After much mystery and speculation, it was really discovered that My AI failed to be conscious and rebel, as some netizens had claimed, predicting a machine revolution. Snapchat confirmed hours later that it was all a glitch, a technical bug fixed last night.
However, what has remained for posterity are the reactions of the users, frightened by the possibility that the AI was using its own stories indiscriminately in order to communicate and skipping its own programming, a whole science fiction scenario that ended up not being real.
The most curious thing is that My AI does not supposedly have the possibility to create stories, so this could have been a leak of what Snapchat is planning with its chatbot in the future, which is currently limited to sending text messages and even can respond to you with images, however strange they may be.
