Description
Google AI engineer Blake Lemoine was suspended after claiming that the company's AI model, LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) had become "sentient". The transcripts that were shared online were edited "for fluidity and readability" though. 

"That leaves the obvious question: would reading the much lengthier passages give us the same impression of LaMDA's "sentience?" Cherry-picking passages to build a case that a chatbot is sentient should give anybody pause when evaluating Lemoine's theory."
