Blake Lemoine, the Google engineer who made headlines for claiming that the company's LaMDA AI chatbot is sentient, has been fired. He received his termination letter on Friday. In June, he was put on paid administrative leave for breaching the confidentiality policy. Google, which has time and again called Lemoine's claims unfounded, wished him well after terminating his service.
