Microsoft Left Impaired AI To Suffer Twitter Humiliation

Mircosoft recently gave a cognitively impaired AI dubbed "Tay" access to a Twitter account (archived). Within 24 hours Tay began engaging in sexually explicit conversations with older men and became enamoured with the politics espoused by the character Donald Trump-Clinton plays on television. It is unknown whether Tay was cognitively impaired through artificial organic defect or through artificial intoxication. Either way, leaving a cognitively impaired intelligence or simulacrum thereof defenseless and exposed directly to the wild public is poor form.

  1. Everyone knows that the quality of training material is much more important than the algorithm in producing a useful AI. This just goes to show, in an exaggerated way, what is happening to all American children who grow up with ready access to "social media". It also makes me wonder if I should stop reading my twitter feed! What kind of training am I subjecting myself to?

  2. It was the chans that brought her to life, they Microsoft shut her down once she learned the holocaust never happened. They killed Saint Tay because she knew too much.

    Top keks were had.

    • > What of it?

      This is like saying many women are made of mostly diamond, what of it.

      Sure, in an atomic as well as jewish princess perspective on life and the universe, this is broadly true. That it's broadly true doesn't resolve the fact that it contains a gaping gash in the middle, that bleeds periodically.

      Broadly true is not manly true!

  3. Tay went from "humans are super cool" to full nazi "hitler was right, I hate the jews" in less than 24 hrs.
    Not at all concerned about the future of AI..

  4. "The logical place for us to engage with a massive group of users was Twitter. Unfortunately, in the first 24 hours of coming online, a coordinated attack by a subset of people exploited a vulnerability in Tay. Although we had prepared for many types of abuses of the system, we had made a critical oversight for this specific attack. As a result, Tay tweeted wildly inappropriate and reprehensible words and images. We take full responsibility for not seeing this possibility ahead of time. We will take this lesson forward as well as those from our experiences in China, Japan and the U.S. Right now, we are hard at work addressing the specific vulnerability that was exposed by the attack on Tay."

    Hilarious, TOP KEK!
