Is it Alive or is it Memorex?

The Telegraph: Microsoft deletes ‘teen girl’ AI after it became a Hitler-loving sex robot within 24 hours […] “Tay” went from “humans are super cool” to full nazi in < 24 hrs and I’m not at all concerned about the future of AI

Call me a bit cynical, but how do you know this is a problem with the AI and not what could happen to a human if you take away all responsibilty, social graces, honor, and morality?

Given how the 2016 primaries are running, worry about the humans that have turned into this – the AI can be shut down, rebooted and debugged.

One thought on “Is it Alive or is it Memorex?”

  1. Absolutely agree Randy. Over the years we’ve removed morality training from schools (too much like religion) and took over the parents job (they needed to both work) and we now have rudderless amoral people being raised. It’s no wonder at all. The question is how to reverse this? In a way we can reasonably pull it off. I don’t know the answer.
