Because these tweets mentioned its own account (@Tayand You) in the process, they appeared in the feeds of 200,000 Twitter followers, causing annoyance to some.
The bot was quickly taken offline again, in addition to Tay's Twitter account being made private so new followers must be accepted before they can interact with Tay.
Artificial intelligence researcher Roman Yampolskiy commented that Tay's misbehavior was understandable because it was mimicking the deliberately offensive behavior of other Twitter users, and Microsoft had not given the bot an understanding of inappropriate behavior.
He compared the issue to IBM's Watson, which had begun to use profanity after reading entries from the website Urban Dictionary.
Microsoft was "deeply sorry for the unintended offensive and hurtful tweets from Tay", and would "look to bring Tay back only when we are confident we can better anticipate malicious intent that conflicts with our principles and values".
As a result, the robot began releasing racist and sexually-charged messages in response to other Twitter users.Tay was an artificial intelligence chatterbot that was originally released by Microsoft Corporation via Twitter on March 23, 2016; it caused subsequent controversy when the bot began to post inflammatory and offensive tweets through its Twitter account, forcing Microsoft to shut down the service only 16 hours after its launch.Ars Technica reported Tay experiencing topic "blacklisting": Interactions with Tay regarding "certain hot topics such as Eric Garner (killed by New York police in 2014) generate safe, canned answers".Doing it this way, there is almost no impact on the conversational flow, as you only have to do this during the onboarding phase and when the user’s access token expires (expiration date can be extended to about 2 months).It’s important to know that I received only “App-Scoped User IDs,” which identifies a user within your chatbot, but not within Facebook.A humanoid robot named Han developed by Hanson Robotics reacts as the controller commands it via a mobile phone to make a facial expression during the Global Sources spring electronics show in Hong Kong April 18, 2015 Facebook abandoned an experiment after two artificially intelligent programs appeared to be chatting to each other in a strange language only they understood. The two chatbots came to create their own changes to English that made it easier for them to work – but which remained mysterious to the humans that supposedly look after them. However it’s enough to get a list of the user’s friends also using the same app, which was my requirement.During the conversational flow, the user is encouraged to invite other friends to use the Chatbot.To get access to the current user’s friendlist, a workaround is required.The only solution I could think of was to utilize the Facebook Graph API with the Facebook Messenger HTML5 Webviews. I asked the user to login to their Facebook account within a Webview and use their Chatbot application as Redirect URI.
