showed a dark side to human-AI collaboration. A new monitoring system revealed that some players were typing words that caused the game to generate stories depicting sexual encounters involving children.

“The community feels betrayed that Latitude would scan and manually access and read private fictional literary content,” says one AI Dungeon player who goes by the handle Mimi and claims to have written an estimated total of more than 1 million words with the AI’s help, including poetry, Twilight Zone parodies, and erotic adventures.

A Latitude spokesperson said its filtering system and policies for acceptable content are both being refined. Staff had previously banned players who they learned had used AI Dungeon to generate sexual content featuring children. But after OpenAI’s recent warning, the company is working on “necessary changes,” the spokesperson said. Latitude pledged in a blog post last week that AI Dungeon would “continue to support other
