Many companies and laboratories are tapping artificial intelligence (AI) to develop more sophisticated chatbots.
For example, the Character.AI website allows users to converse with any real or imaginary virtual character, including avatars of living and deceased individuals.
These bots often produce untruths, hate speech, and language prejudiced against women and minorities because they are trained on data posted online by actual people.
Some experts worry that the chatbots will mirror toxic biases and data without safeguards, while companies like Character.AI expect the public will accept their shortcomings and adopt a healthy distrust of their discourse.
However, experts concur that the technology's conversational ability will continue to advance, especially as people continue to generate vast amounts of text.
