Only a few weeks ago Microsoft accidentally created the world’s first racist AI, and the tech giant was forced to pull the plug on their chatbot ‘Tay’.

Well it seems they’ve still not learnt their lesson, as their latest effort is an improvement (not racist) but is instead hilariously incompetent. This time, their off the rails robot is Captionbot, an AI designed to recognise photos and come up with a suitable text captions.

The page was launched in late March, and Captionbot so far’s been fairly poor at its job, but we can’t hold that against the bot which fully admits that it’s still learning.

Social media on the other hand does hold it against the bot, Mashable reports, and the reactions been pretty funny online.
