The person could win a debate against artificial intelligence of IBM


The person could win a public debate with the computer of IBM corporation supplied with the special program and which received the name Debater which can be translated into Russian as "Debater". Or, better, "Debater" - taking into account that the COMPUTER talked a pleasant female voice.

As reported the Bloomberg agency, the question of need of subsidizing of preschool education became a subject of the verbal duel which took place at a conference of IBM in San Francisco (California). The theme of a debate was announced only just before their beginning. Both parties were given 15 minutes on preparation of arguments for upholding of the position: the computer collected data in the memory, the person did marks on paper. Then within four minutes opponents stated own arguments and responded to remarks of the opponent, and the last two minutes of the party summed up the results of the performances.

of the COMPUTER which memory contains more than 10 billion offers from 300 million newspaper articles and scientific magazines, spoke out in defense of additional financing of preschool education "and even tried to put human humour in answers". She rested on moral aspect of a question and claimed, in particular, that support of kindergartens will help "to break off a vicious circle of poverty" and "to protect children from the most vulnerable sectors of society". The car supported the point of view with quotes from speeches of politicians.

Despite so reasoned and an eloquent performance of the computerized "Debater", public awarded a victory to her opponent - to 31-year-old Harish Natarayan, the finalist of the World Cup in a debate among the universities of 2016 and the European competition of a debate of 2012. He reasoned refusal of granting subsidies to kindergartens with the fact that such appeals often "are politically motivated" and "hit the pocket of the middle class".

between the person and the Debater computer passed the First similar competition in June, 2018 and terminated in a draw. Then one of opponents of the car - the specialist in a debate Noah Ovadiya - could win a dispute on uselessness of state support of the space industry, and the second - Dan Zafrir - got beaten. The COMPUTER convinced listeners of need of development of telemedicine which Zafrir opposed.

the Idea of the project of development of artificial intelligence of Debater was presented in 2011 after other computer of IBM - Watson - won the American intellectual television quiz show Jeopardy (the Russian analog - "The game"). In seven years the division of the company in Haifa (Israel) completed development of a new system of artificial intelligence. By the present moment robots already learned to beat the person in chess and the Chinese Go game.
