    It's worse than that. A form of terrorism in the future will be poiso the data vacuumed up to feed these AIs.

    That has been done before. In 2016, I heard Microsoft had released an AI chatbot (named Tay) that would post on Twitter, and within a day, people pollutted what it used to learn and made the chatbot post racist tweets

    There was an episode of the Endless Thread podcast about this back in December:

    "...we bring you the cautionary tale about Tay, a Microsoft AI chatbot that has lived on in infamy. Tay was originially modeled to be the bot-girl-next-door. But after only sixteen hours on Twitter, Tay was shut down for regurgitating white supremacist, racist and sexist talking points online.

    Tay's short-lived run on the internet illuminated ethical issues in tech culture. In this episode of Good Bot, Bad Bot, we uncover who gets a say in what we build, how developers build it, and who is to blame when things take a dark turn."
