The chatbot now active on Kik, GroupMe, or Twitter, means you can begin interacting with Tay right away, as it's quite hilarious and worth checking out.
Tay is designed to engage and entertain people as they connect with each other on social media through casual and playful conversation. And the more you chat with Tay the smarter she gets, so the experience can be more personalized for you.
Tay was built by mining relevant public data by using AI and editorials developed by a staff including improvisational comedians, with anonymized data as its primary data source.
Albeit, it is targeted at people of 18 to 24 year olds in the U.S., the very dominant users of mobile social chat services.
While Microsoft Research has gained a reputation for virtual assistant teasing, it just won't stop now, as Microsoft’s chatbot, Tay - self-described as “AI fam from the internet that’s got zero chill” is taking the fun to the next level.
