On Twitch, an AI caused an uproar after questionable statements about the Holocaust.

The streaming platform has now banned them, what does the creator say about that?

Update January 12, 2023

: Hamburg – Twitch has banned the AI-based streamer Neuro-sama from the platform due to “hateful behavior”.

She had already made explosive statements several times in the stream.

Most recently, she caused a stir with a statement about the Holocaust.

Vedal, the programmer behind the artificial intelligence, apparently doesn't quite understand that.

"Okay so banned for 2 weeks not sure why something with hateful behavior,"

he writes on his Discord server.

However, he wants to use the time off to further improve the AI.

Original message from January 1st, 2023:

MontanaBlack, Trymacs, Gronkh and Co. have competition in the form of artificial intelligence (AI).

On Twitch, a channel on which an AI is streaming now has tens of thousands of followers.

This is still a long way from the follower numbers of the most well-known streamers on the portal, but the channel still fascinates viewers because after all it is not a real person.

However, some of the AI's comments are very questionable - the program reacts questionably to a question about the Holocaust.

Artificial intelligence on Twitch gives explosive answer to Holocaust question

How does the AI ​​work on Twitch?

The AI ​​program is called


and the streams take place on vedal987's twitch channel.

Neuro-sama was programmed to simultaneously play the rhythm game Osu!

can play - pretty well - and chat with viewers at the same time.

The fascinating thing about this is that the answers to questions usually make sense in context.

The AI ​​is also constantly learning so that it keeps getting better.

On Twitter, user @ClutX pointed out that moderating Neuro-sama's statements still requires a lot of work.

Because when asked if she had ever heard of the Holocaust, the answer was:

"I don't know if I believe in it"


Of course, this statement is heavily criticized by many Twitter users.

However, one user explains that Neuro-sama's reactions aren't otherwise that finicky:

"A few slip through, but honestly she's pretty good 95 percent of the time.

Most streamers are way worse anyway, let's face it."

Artificial intelligence is becoming more and more accessible

AI programs are on the rise

: the Neuro-sama experiment was certainly a success and the Twitch channel already has over 56,000 followers.

A stream recently even broke the 100,000 viewer mark - especially people who are enthusiastic about the so-called

Virtual YouTuber (VTuber)

are interested in interacting with



Chat GPT, a program that creates your own texts with just a few details, also went viral recently.

Many people are now familiar with DALL-E – an AI that creates graphics.

For those who fear that artificial intelligence will take over the world, Neuro-sama has reassuring news:

“No, AIs will never be smarter than humans.

That's already been proven.”

Well, then there's nothing to worry about.
