Research on microtext is becoming increasingly necessary given the explosion of on-line microtext lan- guage. Yet very few suitable tools have been developed for analyzing it. Also, there are few sufficiently large publicly-available data sets (such as the Twitter corpus). Currently, most NLP tools are designed to deal with grammatical, properly spelled and punctuated language corpora. However, the reality is that a vast portion of online data does not conform to the canons of standard grammar and spelling. This symposium provides a multi-day forum to bring together researchers from different communities who have an interest in analyzing microtext: artificial intelligence, machine learning, computational linguistics, information retrieval, linguistics, human-computer interaction, education, and the social sciences. It provides enough time for the different communities to present their perspectives and methodologies, to learn one another's terminology and techniques, and to begin to form connections that will hopefully lead to fruitful collaborations.
Presbot is a platform to create your personal & professional chatbot instantly and easily. An untrained instance of Presbot starts off with no knowledge of how to communicate. Each time a user enters a statement, the library saves the text that they entered and the text that the statement was in response to. As Presbot receives more input the number of responses that it can reply and the accuracy of each response in relation to the input statement increase. The program selects the closest matching response by searching for the closest matching known statement that matches the input, it then chooses a response from the selection of known responses to that statement.
Artificial intelligence (AI), natural language processing (NLP), machine learning (ML), deep learning and neural networks represent powerful software-based techniques used to solve many problems. However, recently it seems like everywhere you look there is a new tech company that's using AI. It's almost as if AI is just hype or some sort of fad. I believe AI is the future. The overuse of the term made me wonder why so many companies reference the technology even though their products or services don't even use AI.
Artificial intelligence is making a lot of promises for even the near future. We already have access to digital assistants like Microsoft's Cortana and Apple's Siri. It has already made great improvements in the healthcare industry. AI can even compose music, dream, and beat us at complex games like Go. All of these advancements are incredible, but why did they start appearing recently, and how far will we be able to push AI? Modern AI has been a thought since the first digital computer was created around the 1940s.
