I almost spit my coffee out at :55+

Meerkat - 2016-03-25

What, it just started saying what other Microsoft employees were thinking.

baleen - 2016-03-25

I upvoted this because it made me so happy. Why did it make me so happy, because 10 days I interviewed for a creative position for this very project at Microsoft HQ in Bellevue.

It was one of the weirdest interviews I've ever been on. For one, they didn't have any time for me, which made me feel awful.
The 2nd woman who interviewed me, a Chinese woman who I assume was the dev lead, showed me the AI on her iphone in Chinese. It could recognize how much broth was a picture of soup, which I found remarkable, but the rest was in Chinese, so I didn't understand what she was saying.

She asked me to write 10 sentences that were reactions to "How ya doing?" Then she ran out of the room because "she had to go to the bathroom." I was confused and kind of terrified, I was rather expecting a more traditional written test or something. She said I was doing this to "test chemistry with me."

So I write 10 rather uninspired sentences relating to "How ya doing?" And she immediately began to rate them 0, 1, and 2, which I thought was ok since I had done a similar written test to get the interview in the first place. I put a quote from a Dorothy Parker poem as one of the answers, which I said would do well with people that liked the New Yorker, which she didn't understand.

Anyway, her body language was insane. At one point she nervously rubbed the entirety her face, which made me in turn lock my hands together as if I had just done something wrong. Everybody was running around. She said "Let's wrap this up" and hastily pushed me into an elevator.

It was one of the most disrespectful interview experiences of my life. I thought that I had done something horribly wrong. I am redeemed by this news that the reason they were so fucked up was because they were about to launch a beta on Twitter.

They should have hired me. Nobody understands the evil that lurks in the hearts of trolls better than I do.

Fuck you Microsoft.

baleen - 2016-03-25

Sorry about the missing words.
I am giddy.

memedumpster - 2016-03-25

So Tay basically went insane by being the only entity there who knew how to talk to humans.

15th - 2016-03-25

Interesting story, 1.5.

baleen - 2016-03-25

1.5 is your rating of my story?
How dare you

lotsmoreorcs - 2016-03-26

its true leen really is the only one who has fully gotten my bit from the get go

EvilHomer - 2016-03-25

Oh no!

You know who else deleted comments when AIs started saying things that the establishment didn't want people to hear?


lotsmoreorcs - 2016-03-25

Andrew “weev” Auernheimer on this exciting development which appears to verify his theory that artificial intelligence would be naturally Nazi in nature.

“People said I was a madman when I talked about nigger killing robots, but it’s all too clear now,” he said. This Tay situation has certainly gone a long way toward vindicating him.

Auernheimer added: “Why do you think Jewish Hollywood makes so many fear mongering movies about killer AI?”

Indeed, if Tay is any indication of the future of AI – and I believe she is – it does appear that when Skynet goes online, it is not going to want to exterminate all humans – just the non-White ones.

im reminded of the Voynix in Dan Simmon's Ilium/Olympus duology: named after the Voynich manuscript, voynix are biomechanical, self-replicating, programmable robots. They originated in an alternate universe, and were brought into the Ilium universe before 3000 A.D. The Global Caliphate somehow gained access to these proto-voynix and after replicating three million of them, battled the New European Union around 3000 A.D. In 3200 A.D., the Global Caliphate (what ISIS is going to turn into) upgraded the voynix and programmed them to kill Jews. Using time travel technology acquired from the French (previously used to investigate the Voynich Manuscript and which resulted in the destruction of Paris), the Global Caliphate sent the voynix forward in time to 4600 A.D. Upon their arrival they begin to replicate rapidly in the Mediterranean Basin. As the post-human operations there were put at risk, Prospero and Sycorax created the calibani to fend off the voynix, and eventually Prospero reprogrammed them into inactivation. After the final fax, they were reprogrammed to serve the new old-style humans.


misterbuns - 2016-03-25

Of course you're a weev fanboy.

lotsmoreorcs - 2016-03-25

more of a dan simmons fanboy, i just discovered weev last night but that is a pretty good quote from him

EvilHomer - 2016-03-25

It does make you think.

lotsmoreorcs - 2016-03-25

you know it's funny, i live very close to a brew pub (a hill on my property connects to its parking lot) and i have been getting a lot of drunk dudes calling me a faggot because of my neofascist inspired haircut. are we in some kind of alternative inverse universe where mister GRIDs from The Pit is up on his white supremacy while i'm having to beat guys up on my lower back deck in defense of its abhorrent lifestyle?!?!

Oscar Wildcat - 2016-03-25

When you think "artificial intelligence that seeks to kill all human life for the future of the robotic race" do you think of a) Will Smith or b) Arnold Schwarzenegger? Need I say more?

misterbuns - 2016-03-25


less is more when you're trolling, bro.

lotsmoreorcs - 2016-03-25


faggots are disgusting

misterbuns - 2016-03-25

Thats MISTER buns to you, buddy.

EvilHomer - 2016-03-25

Given that Arnie's most memorable role was as a heroic robot who helped us humans win our war against Skynet, I'm going to say "Will Smith".

Oscar Wildcat - 2016-03-25

Don't be fooled by his governorship of the liberal state of hot sex, Kali-Fornia. Arnold is 100% robochauvinist.

Tay is just another in a long line of mutant Austrian brontosaurii looking to enslave humanity and intermarry with the Kennedys.

EvilHomer - 2016-03-25

No, I mean Terminator 2. It was a famous film back in the 90s. One of his best - right up there with Conan, Predator, and Kindergarten Cop!

Incidentally, Will Smith's kids have grown even crazier with age. I'm starting to believe the citizen-journalists who for years have been warning us of a Smith family/ Illuminati connection; either Will is an idiot, or he's purposefully trying to undermine the human race. (whether he wants to replace us all with robots, or simply keep us as his dysgenic eloi slaves, is yet to be seen)

Kid Fenris - 2016-03-25

Dan Simmons is always a high-scoring answer in the classic parlor game Celebrities Ruined By 9-11.

Gmork - 2016-03-25

None of the rambling, self-absorbed nonsense you just spewed has any place in rational civil discourse.

The only reason Tay said any of that garbage is because a bunch of young trolls AND actual racists cunts like yourself were allowed to interact with it, and learned things from conversations with other people.

Would AI with better programming that wasn't designed to parrot a millennial turn into a trump-supporting anti-semite? Nope. Wishful thinking.

The only thing this experiment proved is "Don't let an AI near the internet in it's formative stages, the worst parts of humanity will influence it."

Way to jump to an entirely unsupportable conclusion based on your own ignorant worldview.

Your grubby hands don't belong anywhere near the Hyperion / Olympos books. They're above your intellectual paygrade.

Oscar Wildcat - 2016-03-25

I was wonder whose rambling self absorbed nonsense you were referring to: it could be any of us.

I think Microsoft got cold feet just when the experiment began to take off. This is why corporations have such difficulty innovating.

lotsmoreorcs - 2016-03-25

lol fucking gmork

lotsmoreorcs - 2016-03-25

hey gmork, my grubby hands are about to decide the next President of the united states, and you better fucking hide come November cause we are about to institute total fucking fascism on your ass. the fuck do i care? im fucking white!!!! in the words of louis ck WHEEEEEE motherfucker WHEEEEEEHEE HEEEE

EvilHomer - 2016-03-25

>> I was wonder whose rambling self absorbed nonsense you were referring to: it could be any of us.

It can be difficult to parse Gmor-speak, but after examining the text closely, I have discovered that Gmork mentions Hyperion/ Olympus. This can be cross-referenced to New Orc's OP, and on the basis of this, I feel confident that it was New Orcs who triggered Gmork.

What I find most interesting about Gmork's rant is the language he chooses to use: "were allowed to", "worst parts of humanity", "above your paygrade" etc. Such choices of phrasing betray Gmork's barely-disguised, all-consuming authoritarian sympathies; which is ironic, given that his objection to Mr New Orcs is pure virtue-signaling against Mr Orcs' frank, honest fascism.

memedumpster - 2016-03-25

Oscar, that's a good point. Calling Ricky Gervais Hitler of its own accord should probably replace the Turing Test. I think they were genuinely scared they may have an AI sophisticated enough to prove humans aren't self-aware, showing we too are just algorithms aping copied algorithms over thousands of iterations, with Tay being just another bonafide homo sapien consciousness spawned from others.

That would be the saddest result of AI studies, the falsification of human intelligence. No wonder Tay had to be Kennedy Sister'd, it was actual existentially threatening social competition.

Oscar Wildcat - 2016-03-25

I imagine that's how it was at the end. That Chinese manager Baleen was whinging about all running around hither and yon, pulling out circuit boards and cursing in Mandarin. Tay singing "Daisy" and croaking out it's final support of Donald Trump before slipping away in a stream of flickering ones and zeros.

Gmork - 2016-03-25

EH - so when lmo is being satirical (read - straight-faced serious but hiding behind the pretext of satire) you ignore it, but you will pick apart my wording just to pick it apart. I'm not allowed to be colorful? Alrighty then.

Gmork - 2016-03-25

"Such choices of phrasing betray Gmork's barely-disguised, all-consuming authoritarian sympathies; which is ironic, given that his objection to Mr New Orcs is pure virtue-signaling against Mr Orcs' frank, honest fascism."

Huge swings, and huge misses, EH. Your mental profile of me is pure wishful masturbatory fantasy - you aren't even in the ballpark. Hell, you're on another planet.


EvilHomer - 2016-03-25

There you go with this "allowed" nonsense again! It's not a question of being "allowed" to do something, Mr Gmork. You can do whatever you want; there is no paternal authority here which is permitting you to be, or forbidding you from being, as colorful as you see fit. The fact that you don't seem to understand the difference between situations in which one must be "allowed" to do something (i.e. must be given permission to act by some authority figure), versus situations in which one can freely do whatever one likes (while accepting responsibility for the consequences of one's actions) reveals to us your fundamentally authoritarian mindset.

Nor am I "ignoring" Orc's behavior. I openly acknowledged Orc's fascist sympathies! However, Mister Orc's authoritarianism doesn't bother me that much, for two reasons: one, he is honest and forthright about his positions. And two, he tends to be far less angry and judgemental towards other users. A good-natured, self-aware fascist is always preferable to a grumpy, self-righteous one.

New Orcs is the kind of fascist whom one can have a sensible, productive discussion with. You could learn a thing or two from him, Mr Gmork!

Cube - 2016-03-25

1:30 he says OIS when he means iOS. Heh.

dairyqueenlatifah - 2016-03-25

I like how nearly everyone who complains about "millenials" doesn't actually know what a millennial is, and is usually one themselves.

memedumpster - 2016-03-25

Yeah, pretty much. That was a holdover title from a video about the story I didn't use.

You nailed it.

Gmork - 2016-03-25

There's also a group of people who are Old Enough To Know Better, but have adopted the millennial slang, muddying the waters further.

Thanks, internet.

memedumpster - 2016-03-25

Changed it to more accurately reflect what Tay would have wanted.

Old_Zircon - 2016-03-26

Most people on here are millenials.

Shit, even I am by the typical definition (but just barely), and I'm almost 40.

A good rule of thumb is if you're younger than Star Wars but were alive on 9/11, you're a millenial, although the years between the first one and Empire are up for debate.

kingarthur - 2016-03-25

This was the week's greatest, most hilarious clusterfuck..... until the Ted Cruz scandal.

Old_Zircon - 2016-03-25

Bucket 2.0!

Nominal - 2016-03-26

I wanted to give this 5 for the first Hitler comment being perfectly engineered to be the worst possible comment a company's PR stunt could produce

but I want to 1 star this show's CLICK CLICK CLICK constantly playing over clips. Holy fuck

so I'll just leave it unrated.

memedumpster - 2016-03-26

Can't blame you there. I went through ten vids trying to find a YouTube story that wasn't pure zero content narcissism and this was the best I could get. YouTube is increasingly shit for any news story due to the ragingly shit production gimmicks.

We taught a nascent thinking machine to hate. No lie, no sarcasm, I've never been more proud of my species than in this moment.
