Say goodbye to the on-line Wild West, to troll attacks and hate posts: the internet just got a new sheriff. Ryan Cat? Chuck Norris? Not even close - it’s Pope Pius the Thirteenth.
That’s right. It’s 2016, the Vatican has gone digital and the Pope is now spreading the good word with the help of Watson, IBM’s AI engine. Like every good internet lawman, Pius XIII is packing heat. His weapon: Bible verses. His modus operandi: live preaching - on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Dailymotion.
Created for the launch of the new Canal/HBO series The Young Pope (directed by Paolo Sorrentino and starring Jude Law), the AiMEN experience has already bashed over 900,000 un-christian posts from all over the web.
Keep that in mind next time you feel like letting off steam on social media. Because now there’s no hiding from the wrath of the papal preach-bot!
