IBM computers have just won “Jeopardy” for beating best chess master. Now they have again come up with something very unusual say debaters. IBM is taking over human debaters pretty well.
At a conference on Monday IBM computers have shown a black artificial intelligence with a computer screen and competing over a debate with a human debater.
In the debate, face-off between IBM artificial intelligence computer who took the case of subsidiary space exploration against Israeli debate master Noa Ovadia.
Ovadia was judged by panel of journalist for his points and statements in the debate whereas artificial intelligence computer’s efforts was not like human personality but yes they both had a great discussion.
Artificial intelligence computer did better in a second round if debate which was against human debater Dan. Zafrir but in this the computer was the winner in Knowledge enrichment with minor difference.
The rule of debate was clear none of them was knowing the topic of debate earlier, both the debaters had four minutes of time to open the debate, after opening statement they both were again given four minutes time for rebuttal and again two minutes time for closing the debate with most effective impression. The IBM’s computer was first every time.
It was the first time in San Francisco when anyone from outside can attend to event, and witness the debate between a human and IBM’s artificial intelligence computer. With the help of IBM cloud the computer scanned almost billion of sentences in support of topic given to AI system for the opening and for the other parts of debate.
The computer not only competited but actually win the argument which expressed fear by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking that Artificial intelligence is destructive for human race. The researchers from MIT wanted to give a physical shape to AI to create personality named Norman. This name came from a thriller movie ‘Psycho’.
“We want AI system to become pro in language and understand the need of situation, ” said Arvind Krishna the IBM research director. “Just like a normal human debater, humor has to be the part of role in the debate, the computer will never be able to do better than human because of lacking personal touch during debate” says Krishna.
Project debater got a fan like Noa Ovadia she said: ” I was shocked and taken away by his stamens, it’s very impressive that technology had grown so much and could compete totally better than human actually.”
