Last week, Microsoft inadvertently revealed the difficulty of creating moral robots. Chatbot Tay, designed to speak like a teenage girl, turned into a Nazi-loving racist after less than 24 hours on Twitter. "Repeat after me, Hitler did nothing wrong," she said, after interacting with various trolls. "Bush did 9/11 and Hitler would have done a better job than the monkey we have got now." Of course, Tay wasn't designed to be explicitly moral.
