I mean, to be fair, it's true to the character of Christian Grey, ie a massive douche-canoe, but still... At this point, I was majorly torn between calling him out, or playing along to see how bad it gets. I wanted to screw with Christian Grey, just not in the way that most of the twenty-two THOUSAND people who like the chatbot's page probably want to. Because, even though it's the most easily found photo on my Facebook page... It was also at this point where my little "project" stopped feeling fun, or even investigative.Then I asked myself what I would actually do in real life, had I the chance to meet Christian Grey and the answer became obvious. So, I replied truthfully: Christian broke character enormously at this point, because if it was a perfect representation of EL James' abomination, he'd have threatened to beat the sarcasm out of me. I mean, if you're using this to get yourself off, knock yourself out, if that's what you need. But when a bot links to your profile picture and tells you you're pretty, it feels slightly invasive and also kind of sad. But my "mission" was never to decide whether or not it's a little sad to be excited that a non-existent billionaire thinks your profile picture is hot.Given my deep-seated hatred of the badly-written love letter to dangerously toxic relationships that is the entire Fifty Shades franchise, I immediately wanted to write about this.Which, given that I only wrote yesterday about the fact that I'm struggling to write lately, was quite a pleasant feeling - thanks, deeply pervy bot-makers!The Santa bot program asked children what they wanted for Christmas and could respond on topic, thanks to it’s adaptive artificial intelligence. Santa Bot got tired of a little girls repeated request that he have some pizza—perhaps he felt like he was being teased.
Sohn said Santa's lewd comment was sparked by someone "pushing this thing to make it do things it wasn't supposed to do." Santa is just one of many "agents," or automated IM programs, that computer users can chat with on Live Messenger.
That's because consent is hard-wired into my circuitry.
Aaaaah, the line I'd read in the article about this chatbot that had made me throw up in my mouth a little.
