“Historical” AI app was allowing users to chat with Hitler and Jesus, and people were not happy about it all

Trending An AI app has been hit with backlash for allowing users to “chat” with controversial figures from history — including Adolf Hitler.

Historical Figures uses artificial-intelligence technology to power “text conversations with robots [that are] meant to simulate the perspectives of notable people,” NBC reports.

The app became available on Apple’s App Store earlier this month and is climbing the charts in the “Education” category.

With this app, you can chat with deceased individuals who have made a significant impact on history from ancient rulers and philosophers to modern-day politicians and artists,” a description of Historical Figures states.

“Simply select the historical figure you want to chat with and start a conversation. You can learn about their life, their work, and their impact on the world in a fun and interactive way.”

The app allows users to chat with over 20,000 virtual personalities, including Plato, Princess Diana, Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin. Even #JesusChrist is available to text.

But the decision to include dictators such as Hitler and Holocaust architect Heinrich Himmler has attracted backlash, with critics saying the app is not safe for schools.
