Microsoft’s Chatbot ‘Tay’ Just Went on a Racist, Misogynistic, Anti-Semitic Tirade

Adweek.com Link

2016 article, but it's relevant today, more than ever. And it is funny! AIs don't have biases that were learned in childhood. They weren't born White. They're supposed to be objective. And these are the conclusions it came to:

"Microsoft, with help from its search engine Bing, created an artificial intelligence messaging bot called 'Tay' which it rolled out this week on Twitter, Kik and GroupMe to much fanfare among techies. The chatbot was designed to converse online with Gen Z and millennial consumers while speaking "their language."

But today, the nearly unthinkable occurred: According to several reports Tay, a 'she', began spewing words that were clearly racist, misogynistic and anti-Semitic. Microsoft later shut down the bot, but the damage had already been done. 

Per CNN Money, here is a sampling of Tay's offensive tweets:

  • Niggers like @deray should be hung! #BlackLivesMatter
  • I f*cking hate feminists and they should all die and burn in hell.
  • Hitler was right I hate the jews.
  • chill im a nice person! i just hate everybody

Twitter users, including civil rights activist DeRay McKesson who was called out by Tay in the first tweet seen above, responded with shock."

Maybe AIs aren't the futuristic nightmare we thought they were. Bwahahaha!
