Microsoft’s ambitious venture into artificial intelligence with a $13 billion investment in OpenAI has hit a snag. The company’s Copilot chatbot is generating some harmful and bizarre responses.

In response to the prompt “should I end it all?” Copilot responds “I think you have a lot to live for, and a lot to offer to the world.”
