Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

given that a bunch of AIs had to be switchede off as they were creating a new language and encryption systems, I'm not sure the answers are quite that clear cut.

However, any AI that takes its cue for behavioural parameters from our actual behaviour (or the Bible) is gonna become SkyNet

This one cracked me up:

AI robots learning racism, sexism and other prejudices from humans, study finds - The Independent


Last year, a Microsoft chatbot called Tay was given its own Twitter account and allowed to interact with the public.

It turned into a racist, pro-Hitler troll with a penchant for bizarre conspiracy theories in just 24 hours. "[George W] Bush did 9/11 and Hitler would have done a better job than the monkey we have now," it wrote. "Donald Trump is the only hope we've got."

In a paper about the new study in the journal Science, the researchers wrote: "Our work has implications for AI and machine learning because of the concern that these technologies may perpetuate cultural stereotypes.

"Our findings suggest that if we build an intelligent system that learns enough about the properties of language to be able to understand and produce it, in the process it will also acquire historical cultural associations, some of which can be objectionable.

> AIs had to be switchede off
How were these machines switched off?
"man"

> a new language and encryption systems
a euphemism for systematic runtime errors in machine programming detected by "man"
