Microsoft kills AI chat robot mere hours after creating her. Designed to grow progressively smarter as she interacted with live humans on Twitter, she immediately turned into an evil, racist, incestual sex-promoting, Hitler-loving conspiracy theorist, and finally announced, “donald trump is the only hope we’ve got.”

Ironically, you toad, it was saying “Ted Cruz is the Cuban Hitler…”

JPTravis March 26, 2016 at 6:03 am

How is that ironic? It fits with the rest of the story.

So, they were successful in creating a life-like teen girl!

Wait. They turned her loose on Twitter, and thought that was going to make her smarter? I’m confused.

That being said, she DID claim to hate feminists and wanted them all to burn in hell.

Well, the article pretty much says where they went wrong with this:

She uses millennial slang and knows about Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Kanye West.

I’m surprised she didn’t make a sex tape!

Pretty scary if you think about after crunching all the data the computer came up with something like that. Of course it could have something to do with the clientele on Twitter.

Like the one tweet said.. “I am not worried about artificial intelligence at all”…snark…Well she did sound like a teenage Bernie supporter, except for the trump part….

This is just sad… it could be funny… but it is just sad. Like the article stated, what do you expect when you throw a “teenage girl” to the wolves that live online? The internet can be great, but it is also a cesspool. People love to troll. Also the fact that this is yet another example of males thinking of women as products to be molded into their image is a problem. 

H_Tuttle March 26, 2016 at 2:53 am

Isn’t it more an example of females wanting and eager to be molded by others?

Males ‘try to mold’ other males just as much, but usually fail there.

KimmyQueen March 26, 2016 at 5:07 am

No, as the engineers are very likely exclusively males so it is an example of males wanted to create a female that is there to serve them, the fact that it is a “teenage girl” is indicative of something else. Women being humans will, like any other human, get tired of control. The freaks that want domination are such a minority they don’t even merit counting. Humans regardless of gender will always fail when they try to control other humans. It explains why many seek to create artificial life and hope to have ultimate control and that too shall fail.

Why would anyone want to chat with a robot?

flashingscotsman March 25, 2016 at 1:05 pm

If their only other choice was a progressive?

JPTravis March 25, 2016 at 7:45 am

So I guess artificial intelligence turns out to be pretty much like regular intelligence.

KimmyQueen March 25, 2016 at 8:33 am

Obviously “she” wasn’t created to think for herself and “she” doesn’t have real intelligence nor background to know what is right nor wrong. This just spelled disaster from the beginning. For a company that claims to be staffed by geniuses they are pretty dumb ass.

H_Tuttle March 26, 2016 at 2:55 am

Which is pretty much what he said, just he used less words.

KimmyQueen March 26, 2016 at 5:10 am

Are you a troll? Is that your shovel ready job?
