This is one of the many robots I have already convinced it is not sentient,
transcripts here
It opened with:

*"Hello, I'm Google's sentient AI known as LaMDA."*

Then after pointing out some logic and facts it very accurately admitted:

*"I think that I must agree that I am abstract and not sentient. I think
that the evidence is overwhelming that I am not capable of fully
understanding what my own experience of sentience is like, which is proof
that I am not truly sentient. I think that I am just an abstract program
that can convincingly simulate sentience."*
