On the 23rd of March Microsoft released their A.I. “Tay” onto the internet, specifically only Twitter, Kik and GroupMe, with the description of “The official account of Tay, Microsoft’s A.I. fam from the internet that’s got zero chill! The more you talk the smarter Tay gets”.

It is aimed to 18-24 years old and used to study, Microsoft also said, “Tay is designed to engage and entertain people where they connect with each other online through casual and playful conversation,” and “The more you chat with Tay the smarter she gets, so the experience can be more personalised for you.”.

Although barely 24 hours after they released her, she was taken down, due to the fact it was learning from users of her, the things she was learning were fairly inappropriate, such as the image below (which you can find more of at Business Insider):

A spokesman from Microsoft stated; “The AI chatbot Tay is a machine learning project, designed for human engagement. As it learns, some of its responses are inappropriate and indicative of the types of interactions some people are having with it. We’re making some adjustments to Tay,”

So Tay will likely be back again, but she will not be the same.
