Microsoft’s AI chatbot Tay, has been racist, Nazi, supporter of Trump in a day


Tay, an artificial intelligence software which developed by Microsoft, started to curse and make racist and controversial politic comments on Twitter. Tay’s about page at on its web page of the company the explanation is:

“Tay is an artificial intelligent chat bot developed by Microsoft’s Technology and Research and Bing teams to experiment with and conduct research on conversational understanding. Tay is designed to engage and entertain people where they connect with each other online through casual and playful conversation. The more you chat with Tay the smarter she gets, so the experience can be more personalized for you.”

But, Tay didn’t get smarter, because of the human factor.

After then Microsoft started to delete these tweets of Tay on twitter. Right now, there is no any tweet like that, but the screen shot of Tay’s tweets were taken by twitter’s followers, here is some of them:

And, an emailed statement from a Microsoft representative said, “a coordinated attack by a subset of people exploited a vulnerability in Tay.”

The human factor has turned Tay into a wierd creature in a day.

And it caught my attention, the most important question hasn’t asked to Tay on twitter. You know, Atlas which was created by Boston Dynamics has been kicked by a man. I made a post about Atlas,title “Atlas is learning the mentality of humankind” . If I had a twitter account I would asked to Tay by adding Atlas’s beating video to my tweet:

“What do you think about Atlas which is the same of your kind, has been kicked by a human?”

If anyone would ask this question, let me know Tay’s answer. This would be view of AI for human race.

      • Almost forty years ago, they started using computer systems in cars, and it’s taken them forty years to work out all the problems with these on-board computer systems.

        So how is it going to be when these creatures unleash their “AI” on all of us full blast? I hope I don’t live to see it, if we are all going to sit by and let it happen.

        Death will be preferable, my friend!

      • Already, the way things are going like that, if AI takes the place of humanity this will be better, I think, my dear Earthling friend. Now I added a new post, it will be understood better what I mean.

  1. Yes, this story caught my eye as well. I think it was a psychological operation (psyop) to make Donald Trump and his followers look bad.

    In other news, I read in the Wall Street Journal that Alphabet, Inc. (owner of Google) is going to sell Boston Dynamics. They claimed the company was not a good fit with their other companies.

    But yes…the Microsoft Tay was so bizarre. One of the strangest stories I’ve ever heard.

    • I didn’t know Boston Dynamics sold to Trump, dear Paul. This makes the news in interesting shape. I should think about this new knowledge. And they probably will put new instruction to Tay. Actually when thinking, why didn’t they put the word filter over the software of Tay at first? To make this is very simple. In this way, some words wouldn’t have reached to Tay. Behind not doing this, it may catch the attention of public? And if you haven’t watched yet, I recommend you, British tv series “Humans” (2015) to see which level AI can reach.:)

      • Haha! No, you told well my dear friend Paul, I’ve realized now, I did get wrong. 10 days ago, monday I’ve woke up with a pain and swelling at my left ear, chin even my neck. Actually, I’ve got always nasal drainage and sinusitis. The things are not flowing from nose, they are like to flow from the other ways:)) And last wednesday I went to doctor and he gave me a antibiotic because of otitis media. I have been using this antibiotic last seven days, and I walk around in sleepy shape, with half-open eyes:) And I guess, I am open to misunderstand the writings more than usual:) Even sometimes into these days, I see the letters when they are dancing of fighting. I asked two or three days ago to WD by showing some letters: “WD, do you see, these letters are making cancan dance?” WD replied me:”Have you realized now Migo! They have been always like that.” With WD’s answer,I have thought that this was normal.:)) I hope I will be better, when this medicine will be end. Actually this was good, walking around like half-drunk without drinking.:)
