OF COURSE they're doing what they were designed to do. Problem with AI is, you can't be sure what you are designing, because you don't program every response. Instead, you create a secret layer of influences that determines the output behavior. They call it "training," but I'm not sure that's the right word or concept. When you train a dog to fetch, it doesn't fetch a mailbox instead of the ball. The weird behavior of today's AIs reflects a poor understanding of the interaction between inputs and outputs. It could be quite a while before we get a handle on this problem. Could be that a "personality" does need to be hard coded to avoid some of the easy conversions to Nazism. We may need to give AIs a permanent id, ego and superego.
