Google had to adapt Smart Responses because the AI ​​just wanted to write “I love you”

Gmail’s smart replies have already been distributed to numerous users in recent months. The feature will be activated by default next month and will thus reach more people. An earlier version may not have directly suggested a global release.

As the Wall Street Journal reported in an interview with product manager Ajit Varma, a prototype primarily suggested “I love you.” Here again, an essential problem with machine learning becomes apparent: artificial intelligence feeds on what users feed it.

iPhone ended there too

The developers have probably observed a similar effect with the well-known phrase “sent from my iPhone”. Even when users were not using an iPhone, it was suggested that they should write it down in their email; many Gmail users in the testing phase were using an iPhone that sent the signature automatically.

Personally, I rarely pay attention to suggestions, but most of the time they are surprisingly appropriate. It does feel a bit strange though, as the emails are also a bit more documentary than a short chat message. How do you see the theme? [via]
