AI is the new black, and it’s infiltrating every corner of our lives. From AI writing apps that stir up the most strangely human content to Microsoft’s Bing AI that’s smarter than every student using it, it seems like everyone’s hopping on the AI wagon. Even social media is getting in on the fun with Snapchat’s latest innovation, “My AI,” a talkative chatbot that’s here to make your life easier. Want to have your own personal AI to keep you company wherever you go? Well, apparently now you can. With My AI, the world is your oyster. So let’s dive into the most matrix-y world of Snapchat’s My AI chatbot, powered by the brilliant minds behind ChatGPT.
To enter the realm of AI is to explore the endless possibilities and details that this robot can generate. Users can pass the time by having conversations with the new Snapchat My AI bot, however, it is capable of a wide range of other tasks. My AI can arrange travel, propose birthday present ideas, provide cooking suggestions, compose haikus, and more. But keep in mind that this ChatGPT version isn’t entirely portable. The My AI chatbot on Snapchat can’t help you with your schoolwork, compose blog articles, or write essays.
It’s also important to note that Snapchat has made it apparent that My AI is not fault-tolerant and is particularly prone to mistakes. The Snapchat My AI chatbot, according to the business, is “prone to hallucination and can be tricked into saying just about anything.” This indicates that you shouldn’t use this bot as your main source of information and that you should treat its responses sceptically.
And don’t get any ideas about mentioning a fake bomb attempt in the chat as this AI has a built in defence to report the “attempt” with warning.
This bot was designed especially for the loners who have no friends, or alternatively, those of the population who have the amount of spare time on their hands that it would take to befriend an AI (heads up, not long). Because of this, in the attempt to make the AI more ‘friend apparent”, this bot is actually customisable. You can give Snapchat AI a unique name and even alter its chat background because it functions like a buddy. You can even alter it’s Bitmoji to look like, I don’t know, someone you’d like to be friends with based on appearance..?
There are of course however, a few who fear the evolution of AI and of course want to get it off their phone. So in terms of saying bye-bye to this chatbot, disabling snapchat AI can definitely be done and there are already several published guides talking you through the murder of your new robot bestie.
To sum it up, AI is cool and all, but we need to remember that it’s not a silver bullet for all our problems. As we develop new AI technologies, we need to keep our eyes peeled for potential ethical concerns like bias and privacy, and make sure everyone has access to the benefits of AI. And while AI might make our lives easier, it’s important to remember that it’s no substitute for human connection and creativity. So let’s embrace the AI revolution with open arms, but also keep our wits about us. After all, who knows what kind of havoc our toasters could wreak if we’re not careful?
