The Wrong Solution to The Wrong Problem

Intel’s new AI helps you get just the right amount of hate speech in your game chat

Tristan Greene, writing for The Next Web:

I guess every problem looks like something a toggle can address when you’re a microprocessor manufacturer 

The Intel microprocessor company was founded in 1968. It’s bushwhacked a trail of technology and innovation in the decades since to become one of the leading manufacturers of computer chips worldwide.

But never mind all that. Because we live in a world where Kodak is a failed cryptocurrency company that’s now dealing drugs and everyone still thinks Elon Musk invented the tunnel.

Which means that here in this, the darkest timeline, we’re stuck with the version of Intel that uses AI to power “White nationalism” sliders and “N-word” toggles for video game chat.

The snark in this article is totally justified. Who on Earth thought this was a good idea?
