An artificial intelligence machine that comes to life thinks, feels, and talks like a person.

It sounds like science fiction, but not for Blake Lemoine, a specialist in artificial intelligence

LaMDA, (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) is a Google system that mimics speech after processing billions of words on the Internet.

And Lemoine says that LaMDA “has been incredibly consistent in their communications about what they want and believe.

He then noticed that LaMDA was talking about his personality, his rights, and his wishes.

“I know a person when I talk to them. It doesn’t matter if they have a brain in their head. Or if they have a billion lines of code.
