This new Snapchat feature has users taken aback
« Models such as Chat GPT collect a certain amount of information, and produce the most likely answer for a human. This is different from a coding system where the tool must give the definite answer as correct. AIs like that of Snapchat have no notion of veracity. In a way, the AI says what the interlocutor wants to hear “, analyzed, with the Parisian, Michel Herquet, director of a consulting company specializing in artificial intelligence. A situation that also encouraged the Secretary of State for Children, Charlotte Caubelto react on Twitter. « The first criterion for the effectiveness of an artificial intelligence should be to identify the statutory rape. How can Snapchat miss this? I expect a quick reaction from their teams! “, she published.
THE snapchat teams quickly contacted Charlotte Caubel. “ The issue of protecting children from digital dangers is one of my priorities, so I’m always on the lookout for what’s going on. Very shortly after posting my tweet, we were contacted by Snapchat’s institutional representative. They are very responsive and take note of comments what we can do to them “, she reported. In parallel, the application seems to have been modified. The faults pointed out have been corrected, as claimed The Parisian.
