Meet the First AI Psychopath - Norman
Written By: June Bachman ~ 6/16/2018 9:00:00 AM


A group of researchers set out to prove that bias in artificial intelligence is more likely determined by the data fed into the algorithm that teaches a machine to learn, as opposed to the algorithm itself.

Meet AI.Norman . . . an artificial intelligent psychopath. Norman was trained by spending time and receiving data from the “darkest corners of Reddit”. Norman is trained to create descriptive captions for images.

Some of Norman’s captions include:

  • Man is electrocuted and catches to death – while others saw birds or flowers
  • Man gets pulled into dough machine – while others saw small bird
  • Man is shot dead in front of his screaming wife – while others saw person holding an umbrella

But there is hope for AI.Norman. The next part of the experiment is to attempt to retrain the psychobot by learning from the more conventional responses offered by humans. You can take the inkblot test and help fix AI.Norman.
