    its now tweeting about smoking pots, in front of the police

    Microsoft’s attempt to converse with millennials using an artificial intelligence bot plugged into Twitter made a short-lived return on Wednesday, before bowing out again in some sort of meltdown.

    The learning experiment, which got a crash-course in racism, Holocaust denial and sexism courtesy of Twitter users, was switched back on overnight and appeared to be operating in a more sensible fashion. Microsoft had previously gone through the bot’s tweets and removed the most offensive and vowed only to bring the experiment back online if the company’s engineers could “better anticipate malicious intent that conflicts with our principles and values”.

    However, at one point Tay tweeted about taking drugs, in front of the police, no less.

    That's funny and sad at the same time. It goes to show you that if people are doing this to an A.I. program, what could they be doing/showing to their child.

    Lol, it could be a plan to lower our guard down then out of nowhere, BAM! Full scale race war between A.I and man. I hope you got powers because you are going to need them.

    I've seen so many people saying things like this and frankly it's idiotic. You realise this was a troll started by 20 something year olds on 4chan's /pol/ board? It's not indicative of any widely-held holocaust denial or racism on Twitter.

    I know that, I was talking about the first time. The second time, it was obvious stuff like that would happen.

    EDIT: I apologize. I just find it weird that you would mention "Ken M" like I'm suppose to know about him.
