Scientists invent a computer that tells sexist jokes
August 8 , 2013
Scientists at the University of Edinburgh created a computer that can come up with its own one-liners by following a set of rules. Some of these one-liners are upsetting, while the rest don't make sense and are weird.
The software is supposed to pair words by processing large amount of information and making connections between the same.
Some one-liners are as good as human generated but some work less well. An example of one of the jokes that didn't work too well is "I like my men like I like my court...superior."
One of the creators of the program, David Matthews, said some of the jokes resulted in laughters amongst volunteers but it couldn't be compared to humor generated by a man.
