Microsoft is Soon Releasing Another Artificial Intelligence Powered Chatbot


Earlier this year, Microsoft launched one of their AI-powered Chatbot called'Tay' but it soon caused controversy with its racist and unpleasant comments, leaving the company with no choice but to pull off. New reports according to Gadgets Now show that the, Redmond-based software firm is reportedly releasing another artificial intelligence powered Chatbot dubbed Zo on the social messaging app'Kik'. The app is believed to come to Twitter, Facebook Messenger and Snapchat once it's officially announced. "Zo is essentially a censored Tay or an English-variant of Microsoft's Chinese chatbot Xiaoice," MSPoweruser reported. At the initial launch of the app, the Chatbot does a "super abbreviated personality test" in which it asks if the user would rather study in school or learn from experience.

Microsoft unveils a new (and hopefully not racist) chat bot


Tay gave chat bots a bad name, but Microsoft's new version has grown up. Microsoft unveiled a new chat bot in the U.S. on Tuesday, saying it's learned from the Tay experiment earlier this year. Zo is now available on messaging app Kik and on the website Tay was meant to be a cheeky young person you could talk to on Twitter. Users tried -- successfully -- to get the bot to say racist and inappropriate things.
