As one of the technology giant and advancement leader, IBM has new offering to the world of technology and innovation, for Artificial Intelligence, specifically.
They recently introduced a new artificial intelligence system that can craft lengthy, persuasive arguments during a debate.
The IBM called it as “Project Debater – Speech by Crowd,” during the tech showcase CES earlier this week.
At the show proper, it presented arguments both for and against making gambling illegal. It later did the same for the idea of developing autonomous cars.
Though it can’t come up with its own opinions on topics like gambling or social media, the system could become an important step along the way to AI that thinks and communicates how humans do.
It is a great innovation that IBM brought to the world, it really uplift the standards of AI system.
Project Debater does little writing of its own — the AI system’s core strength comes from categorizing and analyzing the arguments fed into it by humans.
The new AI system can comprehend topics like the “importance of social media” and “communication” as a whole.
Project Debater would recognize that the statement “Social media enables us to keep in touch with long lost friends and family” as an argument that social media is good that pertains to the topic of communication.
To simply explain it, the algorithm scans short human-written arguments on a potential debate topic for specific keywords and language, according to the YouTube video released by IBM.
Furthermore, it groups those arguments by topic, determines whether they’re for or against the proposal, and organizes a speech based on the arguments it analyzed.
