Interview with Kevin Roose about his unsettling conversation with Sydney, Bing’s chatbot, in which it professed its love for him and vented its desires to engineer deadly viruses and steal nuclear codes, and announced, chillingly, “I want to be alive. 😈”. Discusses sentience, AI rights, managing the risks developing AI, and the future potential and peril of AI.
