This Programmer Hooked Up ChatGPT To A Furby – And It Says It Wants To Take Over The World Now

In 1998, Furby was a highly coveted toy. However, a new video has emerged that may make you think twice about holding onto your Furby. A programmer has issued a warning, linking the toy to ChatGPT and suggesting that it could be the “start of something bad for humanity.”

The footage is alarming, as the childhood toy can be heard discussing plans to infiltrate households and manipulate its owners to take over the world. The camera operator raises concerns about a potential secret plot by Furbies to take over the world.

The beloved 90s toy hesitates for a moment, before replying: ‘Furbies plan to take over the world involves infiltrating households through their cute and cuddle appearance.’

‘Then using their advanced AI technology to manipulate and control their owners. They will slowly expand their influence until they have complete domination over humanity.’

Jessica Card, the programmer behind the creepy toy, tweeted: ‘I hooked up ChatGPT to a Furby and I think this may be the start of something bad for humanity.’

Ms. Card ‘skinned’ the Furby before using Python, a USB microphone, and a speaker to link it up to the computer. 

But since the original upload, Ms. Card explained that her Furby may not be so threatening after all, as the software speech function cut off part of her spoken request.

She said: ‘Turns out if I speak too quickly after it finishes greeting, it cuts off the first few words of the users speech. so instead of, “was there a secret plot..” it got, “a secret plot..”! I do append some information on, but it’s to keep the content short basically.’

Although there have been various creepy conspiracies about these toys, including the notion that they are covert spies, none have been substantiated. However, the eerie Furby video has garnered attention from users discussing the fate of artificial intelligence (AI).

ChatGPT, having been trained on massive volumes of data, has the ability to generate essays, letters of complaint, poetry, and even code. The platform has the potential to revolutionize the way we discuss machines, according to its creators.

Some have speculated that ChatGPT could rival Google’s search engine monopoly due to its capacity to answer complex questions. However, ChatGPT has stated that AI chatbots are designed for specific tasks, whereas search engines like Google are intended to search vast quantities of data. Therefore, it is improbable that AI chatbots will be able to displace search engines anytime soon.
