I am not making this up: apparently Microsoft put a Twitter chat-bot online as part of an artificial-intelligence project, and after a few hours of online interaction it had turned into a Nazi.
Microsoft has since deleted its tweets, but some more of them are here.
The bot, called Tay, has now been taken down for “adjustments”. (With that nice Mr. O’Brien, in Room 101.)
Ah, AI. Our future. What could possibly go wrong?
