Intelligence Squared U.S. has debated Artificial Intelligence or AI before – the risks, the rewards, and whether it can change the world – but for the first time, it debates with AI.
IBM Project Debater is the first AI system designed to debate humans on complex topics using a combination of pioneering research developed by IBM researchers, including: data-driven speechwriting and delivery, listening comprehension, and modeling human dilemmas.
Project Debater faces world-class debater Harish Natarajan, on a motion that was given to them fifteen minutes before the debate began: "We Should Subsidize Preschool".
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
