Named “”, the AI chat-bot was never expected to haul the usual load of expectations that marketers often have with a new launch.In fact, this millennial-minded bot is the least Microsoft could do, especially when its first attempt at AI failed miserably.Building chatbot based on current marketing technology is still in its nascent stage, and that’s probably why Microsoft preferred to launch on Kik.

Some users on Twitter began tweeting politically incorrect phrases, teaching it inflammatory messages revolving around common themes on the internet, such as "redpilling", Gamer Gate, and "cuckservatism".
As a result, the robot began releasing racist and sexually-charged messages in response to other Twitter users.
Abby Ohlheiser of The Washington Post theorized that Tay's research team, including editorial staff, had started to influence or edit Tay's tweets at some point that day, pointing to examples of almost identical replies by Tay, asserting that "Gamer Gate sux.
All genders are equal and should be treated fairly." Madhumita Murgia of The Telegraph called Tay "a public relations disaster", and suggested that Microsoft's strategy would be "to label the debacle a well-meaning experiment gone wrong, and ignite a debate about the hatefulness of Twitter users." However, Murgia described the bigger issue as Tay being "artificial intelligence at its very worst - and it's only the beginning".
Stanford student Joshua Browder became more interested in bots after the online tool automatically challenged over 160,000 of them.
People began contacting him asking for help with other legal issues relating to evictions, bankruptcies, and repossessions, so he decided to expand the capabilities of the bot to help homeless people.
Rather than making users fill out a lengthy form, Browder used a natural language interface to gather the data needed to fill out the form.
He then used IBM Watson’s Conversation service which helped him improve accuracy by 30%.
Launching it on Kik is safer than Twitter considering the previous experience.
