Has Google LaMDA AI really become Sentient?

You might perhaps have seen the news that a Google Engineer has become convinced that an artificial intelligence that they created has become ‘sentient’ (self-aware).

Is this true, has this AI called LaMDA really become self-aware?

Short answer — no.

Slightly longer answer — Seriously, just no.
