Google engineer claims AI computer has become sentient

After Google artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot application called LaMDA was claimed to have achieved sentience, Laura Edelson, a postdoctoral researcher in computer science at NYU Tandon, stressed that misjudging the sentience of AI could lead people to think we can safely delegate “large intractable problems” to an AI, when doing so could be absolutely disastrous — and unethical.
