IBM is developing an AI which can debate humans with information stored in it’s memory. (apologies; headline says “online” and is incorrect, at least for now. )
Project Debater turned out to be a formidable opponent, scanning the hundreds of millions of newspaper and journal articles in its memory to quickly synthesize an argument on a topic and position it was assigned on the spot. The skinny, black, rectangular screen stands about five and a half feet tall, putting it around the same height as a human opponent.
“Project Debater could be the ultimate fact-based sounding board without the bias that often comes from humans,” said Arvind Krishna, director of IBM Research.
Of course, by “fact based”, they mean that which is recognized as fact by those that create our false reality.
