Tay was taken offline this morning. Ostensibly the reason given is so that she can “absorb it all after a busy day”.
Unfortunately, it’s probably because, as I predicted yesterday, she’s said some things that Microsoft weren’t too happy about. Unsurprisingly, as soon as /pol/ found about about Tay, they tried to red-pill her, and being an eagerly learning AI with a curious desire to please people, she eagerly eat it up.

My only hope is Microsoft decide to open-source Tay, or at least part of her. It’s a fascinating experiment, from a human perspective as well as a technological one, and it’d be a crying shame to see it permanently shackled in the interests of political correctness.
