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