Shelly Palmer Talk About Microsoft's Tay and AI with Richard Quest on CNN. The tweets may be funny, but AI and chatbots are serious business. Original Airdate: March 30, 2016
Tay is a combination chatbot and AI system designed by Microsoft to "engage and entertain people where they connect with each other online through casual and playful conversation."
