MIT scientists created an AI-powered ‘psychopath’ named Norman

This is Norman, an AI-powered “psychopath” developed by MIT researchers to make a point — AI is only as good as the data that it learns from.

Norman is an algorithm meant to show how the data behind AI matters deeply.

MIT researchers say they trained Norman using the written captions describing graphic images and video about death posted on the “darkest corners of Reddit,” a popular message board platform.

The team then examined Norman’s responses to inkblots used in a Rorschach psychological test. Norman’s responses were compared to the reaction of another algorithm that had standard training. That algorithm saw flowers and wedding cakes in the inkblots. Norman saw images of a man being fatally shot and a man killed by a speeding driver.

“Norman only observed horrifying image captions, so it sees death in whatever image it looks at,” the MIT researchers behind Norman told CNNMoney.
