IBM Research’s Project Debater team worked with the producers of “That’s Debatable” to integrate AI into the traditional debate format. With the help of a new natural language processing (NLP) feature called key point analysis, IBM Watson AI can synthesize thousands of submissions from the general public prior to each episode via ibm.com/debatable.
IBM AI researchers are responsible for developing many of the NLP capabilities IBM has brought to market. With the announcement that IBM will begin integrating NLP features developed for Project Debater into Watson, IBM Research once again delivers unique technology from the lab to the enterprise.
At the thirty-fourth AAAI conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-20), we will present two papers on recent advancements in Project Debater on two core tasks, both utilizing BERT.
Two teams, sparring on a controversial topic — whether artificial intelligence would bring more harm than good — the Thursday night debate in front of 300-strong audience seemed rather typical for Cambridge Union, the world’s oldest debating society. Except it wasn’t.
Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) capture the narrative of a community on a controversial topic to provide an unbiased outcome? Recently, the citizens of Lugano, a city of more than 60,000 citizens on the Swiss-Italian border, provided the answer. What is Project Debater? In February 2019, IBM unveiled Project Debater to the world. It’s the first ever AI technology […]
The latest work on computational argumentation from the IBM Project Debater research team group is being presented at the ACL 2019 conference. Three papers will be presented at the main conference and one more paper will be presented in the co-located Argument Mining Workshop.
IBM Research and Intelligence Squared U.S. host a live public debate featuring Project Debater, the first AI system that can debate humans.
IBM Research reflects on sharing Project Debater - Speech by Crowd with the public this week at CES and on its performance.
IBM Project Debater - Speech by Crowd debuts at CES, meeting new challenges associated with crowdsourced content and ambiguity.
Project Debater - Speech by Crowd is an experimental cloud-based AI platform for crowd-sourcing decision support.
Today, an artificial intelligence (AI) system engaged in the first ever live, public debates with humans. At an event held at IBM’s Watson West site in San Francisco, a champion debater and IBM’s AI system, Project Debater, began by preparing arguments for and against the statement: “We should subsidize space exploration.” Both sides then delivered […]
