“A chatbot developed by Microsoft has gone rogue on Twitter, swearing and making racist remarks and inflammatory political statements.”
The sentence above is two- fold because of the issues that the robots are having but also the deeper issues that people are having. The above sentence, read from a BBC article, discusses these newly developed robots can learn on their own through Twitter conversation. Sadly, the Twitter conversation in which the robot learns from has racist and rude comments, yet the robot was programed to filter out these rude and racist remarks but was unable to. However, the BBC article does not mention that despite the fact that people post these rude and racist remarks on Twitter, these comments should not be written on social media at all. Not only does this hatred on social media affect the society we live in today but will affect progress in the future, these robots for instance.
