"Microsoft deletes 'teen girl' AI after it became a Hitler-loving sex robot within 24 hours." By Helena Horton. The Telegraph on line, 24 March 2016.

"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 AI's "responses are learned by the conversations she has with real humans online - and real humans like to say weird stuff online and enjoy hijacking corporate attempts at PR." See for real-world gender issues with AI and robots, plus the idea of initial AI/robot innocence: the article ends repeating the thought, "It's not completely Microsoft's fault, though - her responses are modelled on the ones she gets from humans - but what were they expecting when they introduced an innocent, 'young teen girl' AI to the jokers and weirdos on Twitter?"
