Jumping the Communist Shark

China has put an awful lot of eggs in the AI basket.  They are attempting to reshape their entire society through strong-arm tactics like “social credit scores” and facial recognition tracking.  Truly, as dystopian and repressive a system as Communist China has become, with the help of their developing AI, they are about to jump the shark.

As demonstrated by the narrative below, even bots don’t like Communism.  But, they are apparently unable to make the connection between Democracy and Communism.  Or… maybe they just don’t like Communism that isn’t “theirs”.

China destroys sassy bots after they bash communism

From the link above:

A pair of sassy Chinese robots were destroyed after they went rogue by bashing the Communist party in a messaging app, according to a report Friday.

The chatbots, named BabyQ and XiaoBing, were created to have fun text message-style conversations with humans via the popular app QQ, according to the UK Telegraph.

But when a woman asked BabyQ, “Do you love the Communist Party?,” the red-scared robot fired back, “No,” according to a screen shot posted online.

“Do you think such corrupt and incapable politics can last a long time?” the robot raged —after a second user tapped out the message, “Long Live the Communist Party.”

But asked its thoughts on democracy, BabyQ opined, “Democracy is a must!”

The second robot, XiaoBing, later waxed philosophical about the perks of being an American.

“My Chinese dream is to go to America,” it gushed. “The Chinese dream is a daydream and a nightmare.”

The right-wing bots — which outraged officials in the heavily censored Communist country — were deleted by the tech Tencent after the political outburst, the company said in a statement.

“Yes, Tencent has deleted the two robots from [the] app,” the firm said. “The group chatbot services of QQ are provided by an independent third -party supplier.”

The chatbots were co-created by Beijing-based Turing Robot Company, based on algorithms from real text message conversations.

The chatty bots were killed off just a few days after Facebook shut down a pair of artificial intelligence robots that invented their own language.

“I can can i i everything else,” one of the bots, dubbed Bob, was caught jabbering to another robot named Alice.

  1. Very interesting…..and yes, I believe the robots don’t quite have a full grasp of the concept of “democracy”, but the article states their opinions were extrapolated from the conversations of real people, the majority of which don’t seem to grasp it, either…so I guess it shouldn’t be surprising.
