Snapchat adds new tools to safeguard AI chatbot

A Washington Post report recently pointed out that the GPT-powered chatbot for Snapchat+ subscribers is facing problems. It has been responding in an unsafe way.

Hence, the app is planning to launch new tools such as age filters and insights for parents, to improve its AI chatbot.

The company said, ‘We will continue to use these learnings to improve My AI. This data will also help us deploy a new system to limit misuse of My AI. We are adding OpenAI’s moderation technology to our existing toolset, which will allow us to assess the severity of potentially harmful content and temporarily restrict Snapchatters’ access to My AI if they misuse the service.’
