Oh, poor humanity. You're completely disgusting.
It was a fun thought — by building a Twitter bot that digested all the comments made on Twitter and constructed its personality around them, Microsoft could finally connect with the public and be cool again.
It would've worked perfectly, if only the Internet wasn't a cesspool of hatred, white supremacists and Hitler references.
Microsoft launched Tay, self-described as "Microsoft's A.I. fam from the internet that's got zero chill!" How fun and edgy, right?
Well, since it's built around the Twitterverse's users, it quickly got absolutely terrible, spouting things even your drunken, racist uncle would deem too inappropriate.
Here's a look at some of the Tweets, before Microsoft deleted them all and pulled the bot.
"bush did 9/11 and Hitler would have done a better job than the monkey we have now,” it wrote in one tweet. “donald trump is the only hope we've got.”
Another tweet praised Hitler and claimed that the account hated the Jews.
So in just about a day, a learning robot turned into a sexist, Jew-hating, Trump-endorsing nightmare. I really hope the robots that enslave the human race don't learn anything from us.
