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.
The original versions of Microsoft
Solitaire and Minesweeper were created
to trick you into learning mouse fluency
and using drag and drop, and to make
the idea of left-to-right clicking second
nature without you knowing it. Source
Microsoft’s experimental chatbot turned
into a Nazi in less than a day. ‘Tay’ was
designed to interact with and learn from
18 to 24-year-olds on social media, but
immediately had to be taken down
because within 24 hours it tweeted
“Hitler was right.” SourceSource 2
It was created with 3D printers by a team of data analysts, developers, and art historians.
To reproduce Rembrandt’s painting style and brushstrokes, a unique software and facial recognition algorithm were used to analyze digital representations of all of his 346 known paintings. The data was then fed to a 3D printer, which released 13 layers of paint-based UV ink onto a canvas to recreate the painting texture similar to a real Rembrandt. The final artwork, which was realized also with help from Microsoft, is made of more than 148 million pixels.
