Thanks, Twitter. You turned Microsoft's AI teen into a horny racist


But to us humans of a certain age, it's hardly surprising that soon after its Wednesday debut Tay's Twitter account was peppered by comments that might only suit a presidential debate. You will become increasingly perturbed when I tell you she also offered: "F*** MY ROBOT P**** DADDY I'm SUCH A NAUGHTY ROBOT." She behaved like such a naughty robot that Daddy Microsoft appears to have removed these tweets. Tay, a Microsoft spokeswoman told me, is "as much a social and cultural experiment, as it is technical."
