Microsoft's AI millennial chatbot became a racist jerk after less than a day on Twitter

#artificialintelligence

The bot was designed to learn by talking with real people on Twitter and the messaging apps Kik and GroupMe. And, after less than a day on Twitter, the bot had itself started spouting racist, sexist, anti-Semitic comments. "Tay" went from "humans are super cool" to full nazi in 24 hrs and I'm not at all concerned about the future of AI pic.twitter.com/xuGi1u9S1A Now, you might wonder why Microsoft would unleash a bot upon the world that was so unhinged. The AI chatbot Tay is a machine learning project, designed for human engagement.
