Heard about an ai driven text adventure game recently, decided to try it out, learned it was a glorified chatbot/story writing tool, then heard about
The creators of Ai dungeon are a company called Latitude.
In early April, shortly after receiving a large amount of investor money, it was revealed that there was a massive data leak and users personal
stories were publicly available.
In this data leak it was found people were writing stories with #ed up content. Latitude secretly released a regex filter to censor content out then a
week or so later released a statement about it essentially blaming their users.
Fast forward a month later, the company's made no response about the data leak and has doubled down on their filter.
Some enterprising folks scoured the training data used on the ai for the game.
Turns out according to the report available here:
The ai used in the game was intentionally trained using pedophilic, racist, homophobic and otherwise depraved and #ed up material causing the ai to
frequently generate material that would trigger the filter even when users were trying to play the game normally.
At some point the company thought it would be a great idea to hire moderators for people's personal stories on a site called taskup.ai. Shortly after
that a user on 4Chan began leaking users personal stories on a thread on 4Chan.
Stories available at a link here(nsfw like real #ed up #)
Here(same warning as above)
The company proceeded to double down and remove their job posting from taskup.ai and ban users for ai generated content.
Not much to say other than, heard about this and thought it should be shared around.
The behaviour by Latitude is astounding to me from the things i've read about the situation. There's more to the story, if you're interested and can
handle reddit, the aidungeon subreddit has the whole saga there and is full of pissed off people. Anyway...sadly, it's not actually an ai generated
Zork or some such a thing, but all the controversy is pretty funny.
