The launch of a chatbot powered by the most recent iteration of OpenAI’s GPT technology and specially designed for the social network was revealed by Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, on Monday.
The business revealed today that it is introducing “My AI,” a brand-new robot that uses the most recent iteration of OpenAI’s GPT technology and has been tailored for its users. The $3.99 per month subscription program for the social network, Snapchat+, now offers My AI as a test feature.
On the Chat tab, the newest chatbot will be pushed to the top. My AI is capable of writing a haiku or assisting me in answering a quiz question. My artificial intelligence (AI) was taught to have a distinctive voice and personality that support its ideals of “friendship, learning, and fun.” Additionally, it has been instructed to follow the app’s confidence and safety policies.
The business claimed in a blog post that its AI could “recommend birthday gift ideas for your BFF, organize a hiking trip for a long weekend, propose a dinner recipe, or even prepare a haiku about cheese for your cheddar-obsessed friend.” Give your My AI a name and personalize the Chat background to make it uniquely yours.
Snapchat Warns :
Snapchat warns that My AI “as with all AI-powered chatbots” can be made to utter practically anything. It appears that the business is referring to the mess that Microsoft’s Bing, which was moved up with OpenAI’s GPT-4 model, caused. People began posting odd and unsettling responses they had obtained from the search engine a week after it had launched, and Microsoft later acknowledged that Bing could be provoked to react differently than its “designed tone.” By stating that My AI has “many deficiencies,” Snapchat seems to be getting on top of dealing with a situation akin to this with its own chatbot.
Even further, Snapchat apologized in advance to the consumers for the latest chatbot.
It’s important to keep in mind that Snapchat’s My AI isn’t intended to function as a search engine, in contrast to Microsoft’s plans with Bing. Instead, it’s viewed as a Snapchat persona that you can communicate with just like you would with peers.
Every interaction you have with My AI will be recorded and may be reviewed to enhance the experience of the product. Additionally, Snapchat advises users not to divulge any secrets to My AI or depend on the chatbot for guidance. My AI is intended to prevent biased, inaccurate, harmful, or misleading information, but errors may still happen, according to the company. Users are encouraged to leave feedback on the social network by pressing and holding any communication from My AI.
Open AI’s ChatGPT :
Open AI’s ChatGPT has taken over the internet and gained popularity since its launch just a few months back. As a consequence, over the past few months, AI has gained popularity as a trending topic. These aspects make it unsurprising that Snapchat is integrating an AI chatbot into its texting service.
Of course, the idea of safety is fairly important given that Snapchat appeals to a young user base. According to Snapchat, the robot is programmed to steer clear of offensive or deceptive subjects and won’t respond to them.
According to the company’s blog post, “Our app touches 750 million individuals each month, with 75% of 13 to 34-year-olds in over 20 countries.” “This technology could make these AI interactions part of what attracts our audience to Snapchat by integrating it into Snapchat’s messaging app.”
According to Snapchat, AI has the potential to contribute a lot to the app’s experience over time and promote deeper connections. My AI might temporarily increase the company’s paid subscriber base, which has recently exceeded two million.
