The witty, sarcastic robot will have a comeback for any message you could ever think of.
(Mirror Daily, United States) – Microsoft’s AI chatbot is everything you wished for, and more. But you have to be a millennial to understand everything Tay is chatting about. If you’re the kind of person that uses perfect grammar and decipherable messages, then turn around and never look back. But if you’re totes into tweeting with a robot, then you’re the perf audience, and you totally have to follow her.
According to the official website of the AI chatbot developed by Microsoft and available for every Twitter, Group Me or Kik user, Tay is targeted at the 18-24 United States population. This means that, among pop culture reference, she will be using the millennial slang while chatting with different users. Tay is, according to everybody that has ever interacted with her, a cooler version of Cortana.
She “has been built by mining relevant public data and by using AI editorial development by a staff including improvisational comedians.”
So expect witty come-backs and derogatory replies. But also, she might not be very funny at first because users need to interact with her as she is still learning. But with every message or Tweet, Tay is developing her vocabulary, brushing up on her people skills and learning how to respond to different occasions.
The people that decide to engage in conversation with the chatbot must keep in mind the fact that Tay will track some information from the user’s profile. More explicitly, the AI will make use of data like favorite food, nickname, zip code, gender and relationship status.
If there are individuals who decide that they had enough interaction with Microsoft’s latest baby, then can delete their profile by submitting a request on tay.ai. Once on the website, they will be asked to fill out a form requesting the username and the platform associated with it.
From the description that Microsoft provides, Tay seems like a pretty nice AI that you could chat up anytime you have some time to kill and have a blast while doing it.
“Tay is an artificial intelligent chat bot developed by Microsoft’s Technology and Research and Bing teams to experiment with and conduct research on conversational understanding. Tay is designed to engage and entertain people where they connect with each other online through casual and playful conversation.”
But be warned. Seeing as the AI has access to personal information, Tay may sometimes make intimate jokes. Most of the times she’s just really sarcastic and makes tonnes of jokes. But you must have a sense of humor if you want to interact with Microsoft’s and Bings artificial child. Aside from that, Microsoft’s AI chatbot is everything you wished for, and more.
