Google has opened a waiting list to chat with the LaMDA 2 AI chatbot

Google has opened registration for testing AI Test Kitchen, an Android app that allows you to communicate with a chatbot based on the LaMDA 2 AI. For now, registration is only available to users in the U.S., according to The Verge.

LaMDA 2, or Language Model for Dialogue Application, is designed specifically for creating chatbots and conversations with humans. The Google AI Research team trained it on trillions of words, which allows it to mimic human speech.

Training AI on human conversations can lead to unpleasant, though fairly predictable, consequences, as was the case with Microsoft's chatbot Tay, which learned to swear and became a racist within two days of launch. To avoid such a scenario, Google has limited its interaction with LaMDA 2 to several modes.

Talking to the chatbot will be available in three modes: Imagine It, Talk About It, and List It, each of which gives you the opportunity to test different aspects of the system.

For example, in Imagine It, the user can name a real or imaginary place, and the voice model will describe that place. The test is to see if the AI can provide a description that matches what the user imagines. In Tell mode, the user prompts the chatbot to talk about a topic. This mode tests whether the AI is capable of sticking to a certain topic.

Finally, "List" mode prompts the user to name a topic or task, and the AI system has to break it down into subtasks. For example, the response to "I want to break up a vegetable garden" could be a sub-topic of that larger topic. It could be a discussion of what the user wants to grow, or a topic of plant care.
