Twitch’s popular AI show Seinfeld will be banned for transphobia

Nothing, Forever's AI, Jerry Seinfeld (Larry Feinberg), sits in a chair while Voxel Elaine (Yvonne Torres) stands in the background.

In an unfortunate turn of events, the AI His field Show, which has been all over Twitch, was banned for some terribly transphobic “jokes.”

Created by media lab Mismatch Media, Nothing forever has captivated the internet for its stilted hilarity and techno-absurdism. A 24/7/365 live streaming show on watchmeforever’s Twitch channel, Nothing forever Is a sitcom-like one His field-like comedy about four friends who don’t talk about anything between getting up and being silent. The show is powered entirely by machine learning technologies, including DALL-E, OpenAI GPT-3, Stable Diffusion and others. When Larry Feinberg (Voxel Jerry Seinfeld) and AI friends – Elaine (Yvonne Torres), George (Fred Kastopolous) and Kramer (Zoltan Kakler) – are all seated in a New York-looking apartment, everything is generative. And so (ideally) no two jokes or scenarios would ever come up again as the show went on.

Well, let’s hope that’s the case, because recently Voxel Jerry went rogue and went rogue. During a stand-up bit that was picked up by a lot of people online, Larry thought it would be a great idea to become some sort of JK Rowling Stan and try his hand at the dark arts of transphobia. It’s total crap from sight to witnessReally.

“So this is my stand-up set at a club,” Larry said. “There are about 50 people here and no one is laughing. Anyone have any suggestions? I’m thinking of writing a bit about how transgender is actually a mental illness, or how all liberals are secretly gay and want to impose their will on everyone, or how transgender people ruin the fabric of society, but no one laughs.” I wonder why…

In an email exchange with kotaku, Nothing forever Co-creator Skyler Hartle said he was “super embarrassed” by Larry’s transphobic antics here. Hartle reiterated that the AI’s “[don’t] reflect [the company’s] Values ​​or opinions at all” and was the result of a “technical problem”.

“We thought we’d solved that problem — we’re using an integrated content moderation system provided by OpenAI — but we clearly haven’t,” Hartle said. “We are currently investigating how we can implement a secondary content moderation system to add an extra layer of redundancy so this doesn’t happen again. We mistakenly believed that we were using the OpenAI content moderation tools correctly, but that wasn’t the case. We plan to implement OpenAI’s content moderation systems before going live again, and are looking into additional secondary content moderation services as redundancy.”

Hartle provided a technical explanation for what happened while discussing the findings of an internal investigation into Larry’s transphobic mishap, saying that something went wrong with an OpenAI GPT-3 model in use.

“We investigated the root cause of the problem,” Hartle said. “We had a failure with OpenAI’s GPT-3 Davinci model that caused the show to exhibit erratic behavior (you may have seen empty spaces cycle through). OpenAI has a less sophisticated model, Curie, which was the predecessor of Davinci. When Davinci started failing, we switched to Curie to try and keep the show going with no downtime. Switching to Curie caused the inappropriate text to be generated. We use OpenAI’s content moderation tools, which have previously worked for the Davinci model but have not worked with Curie. We were able to identify the cause of our problem with the Davinci model and will not use Curie as a fallback in the future. We hope this sheds some light on how this happened.”

There was no transphobic comedy Nothing forever the few times I’ve seen on Twitch. You can usually see Larry and his buddies hanging around the apartment discussing the latest happenings on the news or in their town. In a “best clips” video posted to YouTube, Larry once told Fred that a cat “can sing better than me.” Fred said the cat probably has a “better pitch,” and Yvonne chimed in to say the cat “could be a star if only someone could hear it and give it a chance.” The laugh track cut in and I blurted out Laugh, maybe because it was just so damn ridiculous.

According to Twitch Community Guidelines on Hateful Behavior and Harassment, any behavior on the platform that targets “protected groups”, including people of color and transgender people, may result in a channel ban, with repeated violations resulting in the ban becoming permanent. The conduct in question could be anything from “hateful insults” to “posting hateful images” and everything in between, in any way, shape or form “calls for submission, segregation or exclusion, including political, economic and social exclusion/separation, based on a protected characteristic.”

At present, the twitch channel watchmeforever and then the show Nothing forever are “temporarily unavailable” for the next 14 days. Twitch’s popular AI show Seinfeld will be banned for transphobia
