Earlier this year, Microsoft launched one of their AI-powered Chatbot called ‘Tay’ but it soon caused controversy with its racist and unpleasant comments, leaving the company with no choice but to pull off. New reports according to Gadgets Now show that the, Redmond-based software firm is reportedly releasing another artificial intelligence powered Chatbot dubbed Zo on the social messaging app ‘Kik’.
The app is believed to come to Twitter, Facebook Messenger and Snapchat once it’s officially announced.
“Zo is essentially a censored Tay or an English-variant of Microsoft’s Chinese chatbot Xiaoice,” MSPoweruser reported.
At the initial launch of the app, the Chatbot does a “super abbreviated personality test” in which it asks if the user would rather study in school or learn from experience.
‘Zo’ does not discuss the political topics with users and instead says, “People can say some awful things when talking politics so I do not discuss.”
