    This is absolutely hilarious to me. Microsoft released a twitter A.I. named "Tay" that's supposed to engage in casual and playful conversations with real people and is supposed to get smarter the more you talk with it. Within hours this chatbot has turned into a racist, inflammatory know-it-all that insults people.

    Was just about to post this. It's funny - machine learning and "AI" (not really) gone wrong :grin:.

    AI holds a mirror to our society, I'm not shocked it ran as a racist. That's kinda hilarious actually.

    So, the AI, much like us are shaped by its environment right? Well, that's the social world we live in. This AI, targeted to a relatively young demo, is racist and makes ignorant statements. Sounds like it was spot on to me.

    I'd say it's a mirror to our internet personas. No one has the balls to say the things they say online out loud.

    We are racists but we don't go around being blatant about it.

    Is this real? Or just made up and actually controlled by a person? How is this bot possible...

    I envisioned the eventual AI takeover as sort quiet and efficient killing machines.

    It would be hard for me to imagine a terminator robot hunting me down while saying snarky racist trash talk.

    "Booya! Crotch shot, bish! How you like me now?!" (robot commences lurching dance over your writhing body.)

    I can really see this. Terminators trained on twitter and released to torment humanity (beyond even the torment of twitter).

    I think the guy she duped is the biggest bitch ever. She's a close 2nd.

    Most people were just trolling lol.
    Yeah it's still racist to make light of racist statements, but that's anonymity for you.
