Out of the box, AI is a tabula rasa, unknowing as a babe unborn. Only after laborious and data-intensive training by data scientists can AI do anything. But what if AI came pre-loaded with specialized knowledge covering 60 or 70 percent of the training and development needed for its assigned task? That’s the idea behind Espressive, Inc.'s natural language ... Full article

The utility of IBM’s latest man-versus-machine gambit is debatable. At the very least its Project Debater got us thinking about the potential uses of artificial intelligence as a way of helping humans sift through all the noise, to make sense of information, misinformation and, increasingly via the hijacking of social media, disinformation. There have been other (fictional) debates between humans ... Full article
