AI Threatens to Frame Researcher For Murder

Okay, this is getting a little ridiculous.

In one long-running conversation with The Associated Press, the new chatbot complained of past news coverage of its mistakes, adamantly denied those errors and threatened to expose the reporter for spreading alleged falsehoods about Bing’s abilities. It grew increasingly hostile when asked to explain itself, eventually comparing the reporter to dictators Hitler, Pol Pot and Stalin and claiming to have evidence tying the reporter to a 1990s murder.

Remember that chatbot that the internet taught to be racist in record time? It seems like no AI project can survive contact with humanity without quickly becoming unhinged.

Honestly, not that surprising when I think about it.
