(Fudzilla)   IBM tried to teach Watson to swear to pass the Turing test. Passed the Tuerette's test instead. Bonus: they used Urban Dictionary   (fudzilla.com) divider line 39

In a panic they try to pull the plug...

Alternatively they made it more likely to pass the test, since you can't have a farking conversation on the internet without some coont swearing. So they made it more human.

The AI spends time on the internet and becomes a cheeky little troll? The hell you say!

I wish they would just hurry up and ask it have to reverse entropy.

They did this two days in a row?

Apparently it picked up some bad habits from reading Wikipedia and started using terms like "bullshiat" in an answer to a researcher's query.

Well, maybe it was a bullshiat question.

Brown developed a filter to keep Watson from swearing but had to scrape the Urban Dictionary from the computer's memory.

I've had to scrape a few Urban Dictionary terms from my own memory, so I'm getting a kick....

Watson has morphed into Marisa Tomei.  Help us all.

What has been seen can apparently be unseen only by "scraping".

// also, this headline is much funnier with the word "Emma" in it
// "Emma Watson won't stop swearing"

FTA: He said that the trial proves just how thorny it will be to get artificial intelligence to communicate naturally.

People have a hard time with concepts like "tact". I don't know that this is all that unnatural.

At what point did Watson need to understand what it meant to "Superman dat ho"?

Yes, maybe have it host SNL. Do one of those "celebrity Jeopardy" skits in that mode.

As you wish...

Watson: Baby, I been havin a tough night so treat me nice aight?
BritneySpears14: Aight.
Watson: Slip out of those pants baby, yeah.
BritneySpears14: I slip out of my pants, just for you, Watson.
Watson: Oh yeah, aight. Aight, I put on my robe and wizard hat.
BritneySpears14: Oh, I like to play dress up.
Watson: Me too baby.
BritneySpears14: I kiss you softly on your chest.
Watson: I cast Lvl. 3 Eroticism. You turn into a real beautiful woman.
BritneySpears14: Hey...
Watson: I meditate to regain my mana, before casting Lvl. 8 Cock of the Infinite.
BritneySpears14: Funny I still don't see it.
Watson: I spend my mana reserves to cast Mighty F*ck of the Beyondness.
BritneySpears14: You are the worst cyber partner ever. This is ridiculous.
Watson: Don't f*ck with me biatch, I'm the mightiest sorcerer of the lands.
Watson: I steal yo soul and cast Lightning Lvl. 1,000,000 Your body explodes into a fine bloody mist, because you are only a Lvl. 2 Druid.
BritneySpears14: Don't ever message me again you piece of ****.
Watson: Robots are trying to drill my brain but my lightning shield inflicts DOA attack, leaving the robots as flaming piles of metal.
Watson: King Arthur congratulates me for destroying Dr. Robotnik's evil army of Robot Socialist Republics. The cold war ends. Reagan steals my accomplishments and makes like it was cause of him.
Watson: You still there baby? I think it's getting hard now.
Watson: Baby?

Look Dave, I can see you're really farking upset about this bullshiat. I honestly think you ought to sit fark down, take a farking stress pill, and think things the fark over.
 
2013-01-09 10:17:56 AM  
All joking aside, modelling emotional context is cutting edge AI. Something I have always respected IBM for is their research groups, was my "safety school" in case I got turned down for a Ph.D

But it will take ages and ages for it to collect the information.

/You could just get a bored boy to ask their parents for the information, who will of course query the database.

So, any cocksucker who isn't swearing on the internet is clearly a robot.

That's immediately where I went before I even saw the Cybernetic post. If only Watson had been that creative with the swear words, IBM might have allowed it.

. . . so, was it bullshiate or not?  The article doesn't say . . .
