The Bing team developed a similar conversational bot, Xiao Ice, for the Chinese market, back in 2014.
Microsoft execs dubbed Xiao Ice "Cortana's little sister," after the Redmond, Washington, company's voice-activated Cortana personal assistant software.
Chat Tool Founder Robert Brandl offered the following example: Don’t waste your energy outing these guys. Save it for long conversations and “people” you chat with outside of customer service such as those on online dating platforms.
It isn’t suspicious for someone to mention Tinder while they are chatting on Tinder.
Anything that doesn’t grow naturally from the conversation is most likely a disguised sales pitch.
Microsoft is testing a new chat bot, Tay.ai, that is aimed primarily at 18- to 24-year-olds in the US.
Tay was built by the Microsoft Technology and Research and Bing teams as a way to conduct research on conversational understanding.
