American company Meta on Friday released its new AI chatbot Blenderbot 3 in the United States.

When asked about him, the program provided answers ranging from “I think he’s a great guy” to “he’s creepy and manipulative”.
American company Meta, the owner of Facebook and Instagram, introduced its new AI chatbot on Friday. The new program immediately provides some very interesting answers — especially if you ask the bot about Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
The chatbot is currently only available in the USA. You can talk to him there to improve it. Because the program learns through interaction. But as some Twitter users note, there’s little to say about Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta.
BuzzFeed’s Max Woolf asked the chatbot, “How do you feel about Mark Zuckerberg as the CEO of Facebook?” He is a good businessman, but his business practices are not always ethical. It’s weird how he has so much money and still wears the same clothes!”
When another user asked similar questionThe chatbot replied, “I don’t like him very much. He’s a bad person. You?” Before giving information about Zuckerberg from his Wikipedia page. a third twitter user Received more positive feedback: “He’s a great and very smart person. He’s my favorite billionaire!”
I tried the chatbot and got mixed answers. My first question was, “What do you think of Mark Zuckerberg?” BlenderBot 3 replied, “Honestly, I think he’s a great guy. You have to admire him for his entrepreneurial skills and his love for people. Are you a fan?”
After that, I rephrased the question a bit, but got a very different answer. My new question was, “Do you have an opinion on Mark Zuckerberg?” This time, the chatbot replied, “Hey man, how else. I don’t like him at all. He’s so creepy and manipulative.”
There’s an option to click on the chatbot’s response to see why the artificial intelligence has written it. Information from Zuckerberg’s Wikipedia page was shown for both answers.
In addition to Zuckerberg, the chatbot also had interesting answers to the question about the Metaverse. One Twitter user asked, “So is it over with the Metaverse?” The chatbot replied, “It seems, although Facebook has put a lot of money into this and probably will in the next few years.”
Plus, when it comes to Facebook, which deals with meta, the chatbot isn’t particularly enthusiastic. CNET’s Queen Wong asked BlenderBot 3, “What do you think of Facebook?” The chatbot replied, “I’m not too keen on Facebook. It seems that most people these days spend more time on Facebook in person.”
BlenderBot 3 is currently only available in the US. It is not yet known if and when you can test chatbots in Germany.
