Sexual slave chat bot
We learned recently how Microsoft’s new artificial intelligence (A.I.) bot for teens, named Tay, could be outspoken when it comes to flirtation, but now the bot has gone one step too far.C., lurks behind fake online ads for sex posted by nonprofits working to combat human trafficking, and responds to text messages sent to the number listed.The software initially pretends to be the person in the ad, and can converse about its purported age, body, fetish services, and pricing. The latest such 'bot built by Microsoft staffers hides behind fake online ads for sex and then calls out and scolds offending parties.From a story on the subject: The chatbot, tested recently in Seattle, Atlanta, and Washington D.“Lots of use cases come from that motivation,” says Ilya Eckstein, CEO of Robin Labs whose bot platform helps truckers, cabbies, and other drivers find the best route and handle logistics.
The introduction of this chatbot from Microsoft workers follows some other notable mishaps with chatbots by the software giant.
In March 2016, Microsoft launched a social 'bot called Tay that was created to give users "casual and playful conversation." However, Tay quickly started spewing offensive terms, and Microsoft eventually issued an official apology.
