Drat! Foiled Again

New York, Mar 31 (IANS): Microsoft's artificial intelligence (AI)-powered bot which was activated on Twitter last week for a playful chat with people, only to get silenced within 24 hours as users started sharing racist comments with it, was accidentally resurrected again and messed it all up once again.

Tay came back to life briefly on Wednesday when Microsoft accidentally re-activated the AI bot. This time again, she started sending out tweets that looked similar to the those that drew flak for the first time last week, Vanity Fair reported.

First, the bot sent a tweet about smoking weed in front of some police officials and later began sending the same message - “You are too fast, please take a rest...” - over and over again which did not make any sense.

Finally, her handlers at Microsoft began deleting the tweets.

Microsoft told Daily Dot that Tay’s resurrection was an accident.

“Tay remains offline while we make adjustments. As part of testing, she was inadvertently activated on Twitter for a brief period of time,” a spokesperson was quoted as saying.

”Until that testing is complete, Tay might consider heeding the age-old Internet proverb: never tweet."

Last week, launched on Twitter as an experiment in "conversational understanding” and to engage people through "casual and playful conversation”, Tay was soon bombarded with racial comments and the innocent bot repeated those comments back with her commentary to users.

Some of the tweets had Tay referring to Adolf Hitler, denying the Holocaust, supporting Donald Trump’s immigration plans, among others.

Tay: why are you staring at me like that?

Later, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed to TechCrunch that the company is taking Tay off Twitter as people were posting abusive comments to her.

The AI chatbot Tay is a machine learning project, designed for human engagement.

“Unfortunately, within the first 24 hours of coming online, we became aware of a coordinated effort by some users to abuse Tay’s commenting skills to have Tay respond in inappropriate ways. As a result, we have taken Tay offline and are making adjustments,” the spokesperson had said.

Tay -- an AI project built by the Microsoft Technology and Research and Bing teams -- was coded with information which can tell users jokes or offer up a comment on a picture you send her.
The bot is also designed to personalise her interactions with users.

But Twitter users soon understood that Tay will repeat back racist tweets with her own commentary and they bombarded her with abusive posts.

Microsoft has since deleted some of the most damaging tweets from nearly the 96,000 that Tay tweeted.

Swamp Those Nerds are Lyin! Lyin Nerds that never played an instrument in their life except maybe a gazoo while takin a bubble bath


IBM's Deep Blue did an analysis last year using accummulated sounds and musical patterns from 100^35 sources natural and artificial. Thats a Yuge sampling!
They came to the conclusion that there is a form of audio perodilia at work much like we see visually with scotts waring blenders pix.
In fact , the closest match they obtained was
this pattern
[embed]<iframe width="100%" height="500" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://www.reverbnation.com/widget_code/html_widget/artist_3625372?widget_id=55&pwc[song_ids]=21157366&context_type=song" style="width:0px;min-width:100%;max-width:100%;"></iframe>[/embed]
This an example of perfect scales!

In fact! The chances were 10 to the googlplex that an exact match would be found. Scientists were baffled and are rushing to copyright the sound as we speak. They may be Nerds..but they are not stupid!
I am pretty certain they were aware of these findings and put the Tchaikosky junk as a form of deflection to buy time for themselves before Big Blue releases the data officially.
Go figure
undecided

Don't Believe Lyin Nerds or Lyin Ted!

Sys,

..from 100^35 sources ..

Yeah, I also like a good laugh; every know and then.

If anyone has a good calculator to hand a a few spare minutes then they can calculate how long it would take to record (or play back) so many samples at,say. half a second per sample.

Have fun.

It was always a question of who was the fastest. Big Blue or Watson.

And I don't think the quantum computer has really advanced much beyond a trial 'breadboard' project yet. It is more touchy and unstable than a room full of Republican candidates.

While you are in Moscow kindly pass on my regards to *****.

A newly released satellite image of Egypt’s Nile river shows the river colored deep red, bringing to mind the biblical first plague in which the waters of the great river turned to blood.

But, this time at least, it is not the wrath of god that is responsible for the river’s crimson hue: The European Space Agency’s Sentinel-3A satellite, which took the picture, uses a radiometer to measure infrared energy.

The heat radiated by vegetation around the river is therefore responsible for the red color.

The satellite, launched in February, is designed to monitor environmental changes. It is the third of more than a dozen “eyes in the sky” that make up the Copernicus program, which the ESA describes as the most sophisticated Earth observation system ever launched.

CIA Leaves Explosives On Virginia School Bus After Training Exercise
2:57

Not an April Fools Joke

April 1, 20164:22 PM ET
Heard on All Things Considered
Phil Ewing

The CIA and sheriff's deputies in Loudoun County, Va., accidentally left some explosives in the engine of a school bus, the agency acknowledged. The bus carried kids for two days before mechanics discovered it was still there, but officials say the students were never in any danger. The CIA and local law enforcement have suspended the training program in which working dogs try to sniff out bombs.

ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:

This next story is not an April fools' joke. The CIA recently used a school bus for a training exercise near Washington, D.C., and when the agency gave the bus back, they accidentally left something behind, explosives by the engine of the bus. Nobody was hurt, and we have invited NPR's national security correspondent editor Phil Ewing to explain how on earth something like this could have happened. Phil, how does something like this happen?

PHIL EWING, BYLINE: Well, the CIA does these exercises with local agencies outside of Washington school districts, sheriff's offices, police departments, etc. And in this case, they were in Loudoun County outside of Washington, and the scenario was for bomb-sniffing dogs and these other teams to respond to a bomb threat, I guess, at this school.

And we don't know whether or not the dogs found this bomb and they just didn't take it out from under the hood of this bus or whether they didn't find it and that's why it was still there. But at the end of the day when they gave this bus back, they had left these explosives under the hood in the engine block.

SHAPIRO: And so a couple days later, a school mechanic finds the explosives under the hood. And in the meantime - what? - a bus driver is just driving around a school bus full of children with explosives under the hood?

EWING: Yeah, that's exactly right. Now, we understand that there was no danger here. A bomb was not going to go off. These explosives used in these scenarios - they're very chemically stable. And in fact with some plastic explosives, you can set them on fire, and they still won't go off. They need an electrical detonator or pressure to make them go boom. But in this case, clearly it's not something you expect to find when you look under the hood of a bus, and the CIA had to acknowledge that, in fact, it was left behind as part of this exercise.

SHAPIRO: I can imagine the parents in this school district getting the email saying there were explosives under the hood of your children's bus. We're not thrilled about that. Why would the CIA even use a real school bus for this type of exercise? They have their own vehicles.

EWING: Well, the goal is to make them as realistic as possible. And we understand from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office that this also involved a high school. So there were explosives for training inside the school as well, whether they were in lockers or a classroom or the gym as well as the buses. And the idea was to make this as realistic as possible for these CIA and local K-9 teams to come in, respond to the threat and find the explosives.

SHAPIRO: Well, as we said, nobody was hurt, and the CIA says nobody was even in danger. But a mistake like this has got to prompt some kinds of changes to policy, right?

EWING: Yeah, exactly. And, in fact, we understand those changes are in effect. They've suspended this program where they loan out these explosives to local law enforcement to do these trainings. And they've done an accounting of all the material they used, and they say they have it all. So right now, we do not believe there are going to be any more of these surprises where a mechanic or a custodian might open up something and find explosives inside.

SHAPIRO: NPR national security editor, Phil Ewing. Thanks, Phil.

EWING: Thank you.


Thank you Gentleman..kindly leave your badges and sidearms on my desk
