Artificial Intelligence: Snapchat+ Now Features An AI Chatbot

February 27, 2023 | Artificial Intelligence, News

The Snapchat+ bot is powered by OpenAI’s GPT technology.

My AI, an OpenAI-powered chatbot, makes its appearance on Snap and is accessible to Snapchat+ subscribers. In a statement, Snap (NYSE: SNAP) said “My AI can recommend birthday gift ideas for your BFF, plan a hiking trip for a long weekend, suggest a recipe for dinner, or even write a haiku about cheese for your cheddar-obsessed pal.”

The bot uses the same underlying technology from OpenAI that now powers Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) Bing AI. (CNBC)

However, Snap warned users: “As with all AI-powered chatbots, My AI is prone to hallucination and can be tricked into saying just about anything. Please be aware of its many deficiencies and sorry in advance!”

It also cautioned: “Please do not share any secrets with My AI and do not rely on it for advice.”

“While My AI is designed to avoid biased, incorrect, harmful, or misleading information, mistakes may occur.”

It may be recalled that users reported some unnerving interactions with Bing’s AI, forcing Microsoft’s to admit that “the model at times tries to respond or reflect in the tone in which it is being asked to provide responses that can lead to a style we didn’t intend. This is a non-trivial scenario that requires a lot of prompting so most of you won’t run into it, but we are looking at how to give you more fine-tuned control.”

Snap’s paid subscribers recently crossed above two million, and the company hopes that the AI bot could further boost numbers.
