Teacher sex chat bot
They’ve been eavesdropping, too, sorting out offensive content while learning how humans speak to one another through sensitive topics.
Now, Koko services about 1,000 problems a day on Kik, and occasionally, the AI has grown smart enough to chime in before a human responder becomes available. “We’re working toward providing empathy as a service to any voice or messaging platform,” says cofounder Fraser Kelton.
A test version of the bot that could still be accessed online on Wednesday gave the same answer to the question about China’s government.
Baby Q is not the only chatbot to have its issues, as Xiao Bing has also been pulled.
The software initially pretends to be the person in the ad, and can converse about its purported age, body, fetish services, and pricing.
It reportedly told users that ‘my China dream is to go to America’, screenshots posted on social networking site Weibo suggest.
Baby Q is a more information-based bot, whereas Xiao Bing is described as ‘lively, open and sometimes a little mean’ by Turing Robot.
Microsoft employees built the bot in a philanthropic initiative called Project Intercept, in collaboration with nonprofits that hope it can reduce demand for sex workers, and the incentives for criminals to coerce people into the sex trade.
The technology is not a product of Microsoft itself.
