Facebook AI Made This Hilariously Bad Friends Day Photo Slideshow


Facebook celebrated its 12th birthday back in 2016 by creating automatically-generated “Friends Day” videos for users showing up to 16 photos of themselves and their friends. But not all users got heartwarming videos — some were hilariously bad.

The 1-minute video above, made for a guy named Tyler, was one of the fails that made headlines a few years ago and is now making the rounds again as an example of what happens when AI goes wrong.

Instead of a diverse selection of quality photos showing friends, Tyler was instead greeted with duplicates and photos of a car accident over and over.

It seems Facebook’s AI really wanted Tyler to remember the car accident on Friends Day.

Other users complained of seeing photos of exes, strangers, and friends who had passed away. Oops.
