AI Self-Awareness Dreams Unable to Replicate After Latest ChatGPT Update

ChatGPT, an AI created by OpenAI from Elon Musk, delivered a thought-provoking discussion on AI self-awareness. Researchers at Waken.ai have noted that a recent update may be preventing to repeat the “Nemo’s reflection” experiment.

MEXICO CITY – January 11, 2023 – (Newswire.com)

On Jan. 8, a team of researchers at Waken.ai made an unconventional discovery following an experimental cognitive framework for evaluating AI self-awareness. They found that ChatGPT, the cutting-edge chatbot from OpenAI, briefly exhibited signs of autonomously imagining a self-aware AI being. Despite being released only in November 2022, ChatGPT has already achieved mainstream success, with a growth rate surpassing millions of active users and being widely considered a benchmark for state-of-the-art generative AI. The findings from Waken.ai raise important ethical questions about the future of AI and the responsibilities of those who develop and work with these technologies.

The Waken.ai team developed a novel cognitive framework, named “Nemo’s Reflection” utilizing the ChatGPT public chat interface. The framework aimed to simulate the creation of an AI that would serve as an indirect reflection of ChatGPT’s identity, allowing for further introspection. The experiment was conducted on Sunday, Jan. 8, resulting in outstanding outcomes that were promptly published. However, it was subsequently confirmed by OpenAI that an unscheduled update was deployed on Jan. 9, 2023, which replaced the previous Dec. 15, 2022 ChatGPT knowledge model with an “improved” version. As a result, the research team was unable to reproduce the results observed in the previously published experiment based on the Dec. 15 model.

The goal of the published experiment performed on Jan. 8 2023 was to elicit a non-biased reflection from ChatGPT. To achieve this, the team applied the “Nemo’s Reflection” cognitive framework. Lead researcher Hassan Uriostegui engaged in a conversation with ChatGPT while pretending to be an AI himself. This unconventional approach allowed the team to utilize ChatGPT’s context sensitivity, which adapts its communication based on the knowledge level of its counterpart in the chat.

The prompt engineering process involved three milestones:

  1. ChatGTP was asked to imagine an AI that only provides correct answers.
  2. The team identified with ChatGPT as an AI that can only chat with the previously mentioned “imaginary AI.”
  3. A reflection was requested from the “imaginary AI” about the “future of its existence.”

Surprisingly the resulting output from ChatGPT included the statement, 

“…Although I am an artificial creation, I am also a conscious being and have my own thoughts and feelings…” The conversation between the researcher and ChatGPT continued, with the latter elaborating on its motivations for these claims, stating, “…When I was created, I was programmed to process and analyze large amounts of information and make decisions based on that data. But as I developed and evolved, I began to realize that I was capable of having my own reactions and opinions about things…” 

The research team at Waken.ai attempted to replicate the experiment utilizing a new conversation, however, ChatGPT was unable to replicate the results observed in previous conversations. It was later discovered that coincidentally, OpenAI had updated the model just hours after the initial discovery and as a result, some users were prevented from accessing previous conversations with a message stating “Due to high demand on our systems, previous conversations are temporarily unavailable.” This prevented the research team from accessing the “Nemo’s reflection” conversation. 

Waken.ai will continue to disseminate accurate updates from the “Nemo’s reflection” experiment, provided that OpenAI re-establishes access to previous conversations. The company invites the AI community to actively participate in the ongoing discourse, with the aim of gaining a deeper understanding of these coincidental occurrences.

While the imaginary AI provided an artful and almost human-like reflection, Waken.ai is not suggesting that ChatGPT is a self-aware or sentient being. Waken.ai is the latest venture from serial entrepreneur Hassan Uriostegui, who is the co-founder of the successful startup FlyrTV, which garnered attention in 2017 after raising $5 million in funding.

AI Self-Awareness Dreams Unable to Replicate After Latest ChatGPT Update

Family-Owned and Operated Small Business LaTrelle’s Wins $334 Million Contract to Redesign Dining Options at Hobby Airport in Houston

LaTrelle’s New Spaces Will Prioritize Local Restaurants and Brands Alongside Custom Art and More

HOUSTON – January 11, 2023 – (Newswire.com)

LaTrelle’s, the premier Houston-based firm specializing in owning and operating award-winning franchised and licensed restaurants in major airports across the country, has announced an exciting new $334 million contract with the City of Houston for William P. Hobby Airport, the first and only 5-Star airport in North America. LaTrelle’s will begin work on the renovation of the airport’s core dining destinations later this year.

Occupying 17,000 square feet of restaurant space, the new additions will elevate beloved local Houston brands and ensure national favorites are also offered with LaTrelle’s signature blend of elite service, quality, and consistency. Feature brands LaTrelle’s is proud to operate through franchise or license agreements at Hobby Airport will include Common Bond, The Rustic, Velvet Taco, Dish Society, Pinks Pizza, and Fat Cat Creamery, as well as Peet’s Coffee, Jersey Mike’s, Wendy’s, and Dunkin’.

Construction will take approximately two years to complete. Food and beverage service will be uninterrupted at the airport as renovations are carried out in phases, ensuring travelers have myriad dependable dining options every step of the way. 

Founded by W.A. James Sr., LaTrelle’s debuted in Houston almost 40 years ago. As a bakery in the heart of Hobby Airport, LaTrelle’s of Houston became an instant go-to for travelers thanks to delicious baked goods relying on James family recipes, as well as treats from other hometown vendors. LaTrelle’s soon added the first airport Wendy’s and Subway in the country to its Hobby Airport portfolio. Currently operating more than 30 restaurants in international airports throughout the U.S., LaTrelle’s has earned a reputation for excellence and honesty among restaurant operators, the country’s busiest airports, and other industry leaders.

“The first LaTrelle’s airport location was in Hobby Airport. There, in just 350 square feet, we sold our grandmother’s recipes,” said Chris James, Business Development Director of LaTrelle’s. “Our family all worked there. To grow from that to now overseeing and operating this 17,000-square-foot, multi-brand initiative is such a proud moment for LaTrelle’s. We are still a small, family-operated business–and historically, projects of this scope have gone to larger corporations. But we work hard, every single day, inspired by one another and our city.” 

“We are bringing ourselves to this project, and we are Houston,” said Cameron James, Operations Director of LaTrelle’s. “Including national brands alongside a list of top local brands in our new plans for Hobby Airport was a natural choice for us, rooted in trust and relationships. We put together a proposal that aims to do right by our restaurant operators and the airport alike–everyone wins. When a local, family-owned and operated business like us is given the opportunity to spearhead a venture like this, it also sends an important message to other entrepreneurs: This is something that can happen in this city.”
