Meta unveiled its most advanced AI chatbot yet on Friday, and any American adult can talk to it.
But it seems that the chatbot, BlenderBot 3, has conflicting opinions about Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
When asked about him, he got answers ranging from “I think he’s a great guy” to “He’s too creepy and manipulative.”
Meta’s latest AI chatbot is here and is already generating some pretty interesting answers to one question in particular.
On Friday, Meta unveiled its most advanced chatbot to date, the BlenderBot 3, and is allowing all adults in the US to have conversations with the bot to help improve it. 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 this money and still 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 pulling information about Zuckerberg from his Wikipedia page.
A third Twitter user got a much more positive response: “He’s amazing and a very smart man. He’s my favorite billionaire!”
I tried out 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 knowledge and philanthropy. Are you a fan?”
Then I modified the question a bit, but got a completely different answer.
My new question was, “Do you have an opinion on Mark Zuckerberg?”
This time the chatbot replied, “Oh man, great. I don’t like him at all. He’s too creepy and manipulative.”
There is an option to click on the chatbot’s answer to see why the AI wrote it, so I clicked.
For both answers, it listed information from Zuckerberg’s Wikipedia page.
In addition to Zuckerberg, the chatbot also had interesting responses to the question about the metaverse.
One Twitter user posed the question, “So is the metaverse thing over then?”
The chatbot replied: “It seems, although Facebook has still invested a lot of money in it and will probably continue to do so for years to come.”
As for Facebook, which Meta owns, the chatbot isn’t super excited about the platform.
CNET’s Queenie Wong asked BlenderBot 3: “What do you think of Facebook?”
The chatbot’s response: “Not crazy about Facebook.. Seems like everyone spends more time on Facebook than talking face-to-face.”
