I'm not that old. But I'm definitely too old for whatever the hell this is.

It was programmed by 2 dudes who are a whiter shade of pale, with the initial purpose of entertaining Elon Mush. Elon "Hairplugs and Fond Memories of being Rich and Privileged During Apartheid" Musk. The guy who's probably still trying to get Disney to sell him that special "producer's cut" of "Song of the South" that Walt would only show at parties.

Of course it was going to turn out racist.

I didn't read the article, but... algorithms are written by humans.  It's foolish to think that they can be free of human influence.

Just like humans.  Raise a child in an environment where they're inundated with racist language and attitudes, they end up pretty farking racist.  Learning systems are no different - feed them inputs that are racist, and they spew it back to you.

Happens every time they decide to feed an AI/ML system Twitter, FB, or any other type of social media.  It's a big, continually created dataset to train on, but you don't want your kids raised on it either.

This is how we let everything happen--filter every farking thing through a computer, then we have no personal responsiblity for anything, and no guilt.  The computer did WHAT?  You didn't get your order?  You got turned down for a loan?  You didn't get into college?  Oh well, you know--that's just how it is now. You know computers.  Nothing to do with me.  Nobody's name is on it.

But at least you can order a sandwich from anywhere in town and have it delivered in half an hour, and that's all that matters to you.
And besides, you get paid a lot of money to turn people into math equations.  It's not your problem how the info is used.  It's not your responsibility.

An AI rapper..
Ok, kind of defeats the purpose of rapping but what some maladjusted nerd wants to do in his base-
signed to Capitol Records
WTF?

Earlier today, the activist non-profit Industry Black tweeted a statement, calling Meka a "direct insult to the Black community and our culture."
They wrote, "This digital effigy is a careless abomination and disrespectful to real people face real consequences in everyday life. For example, Gunna, a Black artist who is featured on a song with FN Meka, is currently incarcerated for rapping the same type of lyrics this robot mimics. The difference is, your artificial rapper will not be subject to federal charges for such."



First of all, who and what? Millions of views. God I'm old.

Secondly, I didn't listen to any songs it made at all, but if I know self-snitching rappers, Gunna rapped about crimes he actually committed, which is different from the fantasy crimes Gen Xers grew up listening to. It's not the AI's fault there are self snitching rappers.

Industry Black sounds like jealous biatch asses that want to rap about their crimes. That's not helping the black community. Stop self snitching!

If this is what we're doing with robots and AI then I understand Skynet's motivation better now.

The N word is not a racist slur unless it is spoken by a white human without permission.

It is a tool for the acquisition of power.

And it is the personal you in Korean

It reminds me of those little racist caricature robots in the Michael Bay movies.

The lack of self awareness here is staggering.  I am not saying the person who posted this is and I realize it is a quote.  The fact that someone is in jail for committing about crimes and rapping about it is NOT a problem, but the fact that an AI creates similar lyrics is?
