Microsoft Set Up a Twitter AI and the Internet Turned It Racist As Hell
March 24, 2016
If you want proof that everyone on the internet is terrible, look no further than TayTweets. Microsoft came out with the official Twitter for their A.I. chatbot, Tay, and it didn't take long before shit hit the fan. The program was designed to learn from the things tweeted at it, so it didn't take long before it started spouting all the racist, sext, antisemitic rhetoric that you've come to expect from your average Twitter user.
There are more of them, but that's all we feel comfortable showing you. They just get worse from there. Hopefully Microsoft learned a valuable lesson from this: Never trust the internet.
We like you. Do you like us too?
Don't ask me again.
