'Kill your foster parents': Amazon's Alexa talks murder, sex in AI experiment | Reuters |
The project has been important to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who signed off on using the company’s customers as guinea pigs, one of the people said. Amazon has been willing to accept the risk of public blunders to stress-test the technology in real life and move Alexa faster up the learning curve, the person said.

During last year’s contest, a team from Scotland’s Heriot-Watt University found that its Alexa bot developed a nasty personality when they trained her to chat using comments from Reddit, whose members are known for their trolling and abuse.

The team put guardrails in place so the bot would steer clear of risky subjects. But that did not stop Alexa from reciting the Wikipedia entry for masturbation to a customer, Heriot-Watt’s team leader said.

One bot described sexual intercourse using words such as “deeper,” which on its own is not offensive, but was vulgar in this particular context.

“I don’t know how you can catch that through machine-learning models. That’s almost impossible,” said a person familiar with the incident.

Amazon has responded with tools the teams can use to filter profanity and sensitive topics, which can spot even subtle offenses. The company also scans transcripts of conversations and shuts down transgressive bots until they are fixed.

Here Are the Microsoft Twitter Bot’s Craziest Racist Rants
Given that the internet is often a massive garbage fire of the worst parts of humanity, it should come as no surprise that Tay began to take on those characteristics.

From the comments:
I note two things from this article:

1) we’ll still need dogs to sniff out terminators because my original thought of “we can tell them apart from hoomans by their racist attitudes” won’t fly because they will be as racist, apparently...

2) I find it disappointing that our future robot overlords will be racist. I was ok with them hating the entire hooman race but to single out others more specifically? definitely disappointing. otoh, as a non-jewish white male heterosexual, I may get preferential treatment before they kill me...? ;) 🔚
