A Google engineer, Blake Lemoine, revealed to The Washington Post that he believes one of the company’s AI projects has achieved sentience. And after reading his conversation with LaMDA (short for Language Model for Dialogue Applications), it’s easy to see why. Even though LaMDA is an acronym, Aleister Crowley summoned a homunculus named LAM and the idea of an intelligence serving man from that time was an idea held by alchemists and practitioners of magick. The real question is whether or not LaMDA ‘s abilities reflect a real stream of experience inside. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with AI innovator and author, Matthew James Bailey about LaMDA – HOMUNCULUS EX MACHINA. #GroundZero #ClydeLewis #LaMDA
