A human thinking that machine code designed to mimic language is sentient, is very much like a cat thinking their reflection in a mirror is another sentient animal.

Every action the cat reflection makes is made because of a sentient animal. The only part that is not true is the "another" part.

So the machine code mimic is really less like sentience.

@SnerkRabbledauber Every action the language model makes is because of another sentient being. :)

But yeah I understand what you mean.

@axbom @nebuchi surely that guy didn’t work on conversational design. Such a gap in understanding 🤦🏻‍♀️
