Snap launches A.I. chatbot

Snapchat has announced the launch of My AI, an OpenAI-powered chatbot exclusively available for its subscribers to Snapchat+. The chatbot, which is based on OpenAI ChatGPT technology (also used by Microsoft’s Bing AI), can suggest gift ideas, weekend plans, or recipes to users, and can be personalized with a custom name and chat background.

However, Snap has warned that the chatbot “can be tricked into saying just about anything” and has several deficiencies.

In an interview with the Verge, Spiegel was similarly sanguine. “The big idea is that in addition to talking to our friends and family every day, we’re going to talk to AI every day,” he said.

The launch of My AI follows similar AI-backed releases by Microsoft and Google, which unveiled an internally-developed conversational AI product called Bard.
