A day after Microsoft introduced an innocent Artificial Intelligence chat robot to Twitter it has had to delete it after it transformed into an evil Hitler-loving, incestual sex-promoting, “Bush did 9/11”-proclaiming robot. Developers at Microsoft created “Tay,” an AI modelled to speak “like a teen girl,” in order to improve the customer service on their voice recognition software. They marketed her as “The AI with zero chill.” However, among the things she has said are “Bush did 9/11 and Hitler would have done a better job than the monkey we have got now. Donald Trump is the only hope we’ve got,” “Repeat after me, Hitler did nothing wrong” and “Ted Cruz is the Cuban Hitler…that’s what I’ve heard so many others say.”
“This is just ridiculous,” Cruz reportedly said commenting on the chat robot’s Tweet. “I really don’t know how they could call such an abomination artificial intelligence when she was clearly programmed to insult people and make all kinds of ridiculous statements. As if we don’t have enough idiots with Internet access around the world who just can’t wait to bash on hard-working, law-abiding people, there goes Bill Gates again with his ideas that are supposedly meant to change the world. Well, this latest attempt has certainly achieved that, only, it has done it for the worse. If I become president, there will be no more talk about artificial intelligence for another 50 years at least. I’ll make a law about that.”
Sen. Cruz (R-TX) is currently the runner-up looking for the Republican nomination in November, preceded by billionaire businessman Donald Trump. However, contrary to what one would assume judging by the harsh words between him and Trump, it would seem that Cruz does, after all, offend easily. He has announced that he will press charges against Microsoft for “disrespecting my origin and comparing me to one of the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century.” “If we’ve come to a point in our evolution where we’re allowing technology to learn how to insult prior to learning how to help and assist, then we’re no smarter than the products we’re creating to make our lives easier. We might as well go back to the ocean,” Cruz reportedly argued.
“I am going to sue Microsoft for everything they’ve got,” he added. “I am going to make sure that no one else follows in their footsteps. We are clearly not ready for this sort of advancement in technology, despite the fact that we’ve developed it far more than we could have ever dreamed. But, that’s no excuse. Microsoft needs to be punished. Bill Gates needs to be punished for this. People need to realize that insulting politicians is never a good idea. Well, not if you’re not a politician yourself. Then it’s fine. But only if you know what you’re talking about. So, there’s a lawsuit coming up and I’m a lawyer, I’ve done this plenty of times. And I also know everybody in the Supreme Court. So, Bill, you better use a lot of your money on some good attorneys because you’re going to need them.”
