According to Alex Heath, a technology insider, Snapchat AI is currently powered by ChatGPT which is another well established AI system that many do not view as a problem that is unsafe for teens.
"Snap’s employees have trained it to adhere to the company’s trust and safety guidelines and not give responses that include swearing, violence, sexually explicit content, or opinions about dicey topics like politics."
Because Snapchat AI has been specifically designed not to cause issues, it has been met with backlash from parents due to its accessibility rather its overall functionality.
To support the side of No, in the article the SnapChat CEO stated “The big idea is that in addition to talking to our friends and family every day, we’re going to talk to AI every day.”
This quote is concerning to those who think AI integration this early is bad because it seems that Snapchat is pushing AI whether an individual likes it or not, rather than an individual going to another site for AI access.
This topic ultimately varies user to user as some many view it helpful while other view it harmful.
