Scientists create world’s first ‘psychopath’ artificial intelligence using Rorschach test – but what do you see?
Scientists are enlisting the help of the general public to make an algorithm more human, after it began displaying psychopathic tendencies.
Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created an algorithm named Norman, in tribute to the character Norman Bates in 1960 Hitchcock horror film Psycho, and trained it using gruesome picture captions, causing it to associate objects with death.
They produced what has been labelled the “world’s first psychopath artificial intelligence”, which sees horrific images in everything it is fed.
