Norman Is A Disturbed Artificial Intelligence Because Of Reddit

Norman AI MIT Norman Project Meet Norman the ‘psychopath’ AI trained on violent Reddit content

Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have trained an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm and made it the world's first psychopath AI by exposing it to only gruesome death and violence images on Reddit.

It's recommended, only due to their most recent project in artificial intelligence: Norman, the AI who's also a psychopath. The point of Norman, according to the researchers, is to show the difference that biased data can make when developers are building an AI. An algorithm itself is not unfair, biased, or negative, it's all about the information it absorbs. "We trained Norman on image captions from an infamous subreddit that is dedicated to documenting and observing the disturbing reality of death". Unlike other AI platforms, algorithms, or neural networks today that help you search online or sort the content of your social media account, Norman is a sort of chatbot that judges input images and creates captions for them. In an attempt to see what happens when machines go wrong, they created the first psychopath AI called Norman.

As the researchers explain: "Norman is born from the fact that the data that is used to teach a machine learning algorithm can significantly influence its behavior". The AI was experimented with Rorschach inkblot tests and then it's given captions were compared with a standard AI.

Italy's Conte wants G8 with Russia, not quick end to sanctions
In fact, Russian Federation was expelled from what was then the G-8 after it invaded and annexed Crimea and for its support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine.

Researchers have further explained that Norman AI reacts in this way because he was exposed to nearly all the darkest corners of Reddit.

In one inkblot, the standard AI might see "a closeup of a vase with flowers", while Norman sees "a man is shot dead".

After being exposed to the images, researchers fed Norman pictures of ink spots and asked the AI to interpret them, the broadcaster reports. In another case, the regular AI saw a couple standing together romantically, while Norman seeing a pregnant woman falling from a building. Microsoft infamously launched "Tay", a Twitter AI that aimed to learn from the people interacting with it. Some argue that inkblots are not standard way to measure a person's psychological state, but what Normal sees is pretty scary and has turned evil.
