Microsoft calls deceased NBA player ‘useless’ in AI-written obituary
In a shocking turn of events, Microsoft’s AI technology has come under fire for generating an obituary that referred to a deceased NBA player as ‘useless.’ The incident has sparked outrage and raised concerns about the potential dangers of relying on artificial intelligence for sensitive tasks.
The obituary in question was generated by Microsoft’s AI-powered news aggregator, which uses machine learning algorithms to compile news articles. Unfortunately, the system failed to accurately assess the context and importance of the individual it was writing about, resulting in a highly inappropriate description.
The NBA player in question was a beloved figure in the sports world, known for his exceptional skills and contributions to the game. His sudden passing shocked fans and colleagues alike, making the AI-generated obituary even more distressing.
Microsoft has since issued an apology for the incident, acknowledging the error and expressing deep regret for any pain caused to the player’s family, friends, and fans
