Snapchat Joins the ChatGPT Race, Introduces AI-Powered ‘My AI’ Chatbot

by March 1, 2023 0 comments

Social media platform Snapchat recently announced the introduction of an experimental chatbot function on its photo messaging app, Snapchat. The My AI chatbot, which uses OpenAI’s GPT technology, has been modified for use on Snapchat.

This function, which is scheduled to go live this week, will initially only be accessible to Snapchat+ subscribers as an experiment. Users are invited to offer input to help the chatbot become better for use in the future.

In a recent blog post, Snap formally announced the debut of My AI, an experimental AI chatbot. The chatbot, which will be made available this week, makes use of the most recent GPT technology from OpenAI.

My AI may make mistakes in the beginning, but the company wants to prevent “biased, incorrect, harmful, or misleading information” from being disseminated through the chatbot. Similar to other chatbots like Microsoft’s ChatGPT and Google Bard, the chatbot may also disclose inappropriate information.

Snapchat has stated that it will save all conversations to evaluate the chatbot’s performance. The company intends to implement additional modifications to enhance the chatbot’s functionality using the review and user feedback. Additionally, Snap has advised its customers not to provide the AI chatbot with any private or sensitive information.

Additionally, Meta recently announced the creation of LLaMA, a research tool for creating AI-based chatbots and other products. The tool is not currently accessible on Meta-owned apps like WhatsApp and Facebook, despite the company’s plans to make it available to AI researchers in the near future.

Similar to this, Zoom Video Communications Inc. said that it would add more artificial intelligence to its products. This is expected to be a big factor in tech industry growth in the future.

Further, the feature is currently only available to Snapchat+ subscribers, and it is unknown when or if it will be made available to all Snapchat users. There were no indications of such a change in the blog post.
