Microsoft Creeps Us Out

What Is Going On Here? Who did this inside Microsoft? Why did they release their Bing ChatBot if it wasn’t really market ready?

Here’s my take –

Using my avatar for fun and creativity. Plus, you trust and know you can reach me. Not the case with an AI ChatBot!

Crazy coincidence is that Section 230 is NOW before the Supreme Court. Just to check in — in case you do not know exactly what Section 230 of the Internet/Social Media is:

In short- since social media companies did not create the content- the users did- social media platforms are not help liable for “bad” content on their platform.

Section 230 is a section of Title 47 of the United States Code that was enacted as part of the Communications Decency Act of 1996…….and generally provides immunity for website platforms with respect to third-party content.

The Law of Section 230

No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.

Here is my question though- if the social media platform ITSELF created the “bad” content, are they held liable?

Seems that with this Microsoft creepy chatbot, while nothing illegal happened here- no doubt it draws the slippery slope question.

We do seem to be hearing more from commentators and journalists- and less from big tech executives. And for my final question – where is Bill Gates on this issue?

UPDATE Feb 23rd 2023- The Supreme Court kicked it back to Congress for them to legislate on. Said basically that the updates to the law were not their jurisdiction- it’s up to the politicians to make necessary updates.
