Well, what natural language processing that we use does is it actually goes in and identifies what's the thing that this it actually about. So, it's keeping track as it reads through and says, "Okay, I recognize that there a few things "that we're talking about here, "here are some ideas that are very similar." And it pulls all that together and says… "Okay, at the end, I think that this was really "about these three or four topics. "Like, that's what I'm going to put in front of you "and say this is what this piece "of content was actually about." And, so that's what we use the natural language processing for.
In the continuation of our conversation from last week with Technologist William Ammerman, we explore how modern digital marketing is changing the way people are persuaded. We're already at a point where we are empathetically relating to our devices, and by empathetically relating to our devices, we are opening ourselves up to persuasion at a very deep level. Studies have shown that the more human-like a relationship with a device is, the more empathetic we are and the more vulnerable we are to persuasion. You have to start pondering: What does it mean that we're all talking to our devices; that we're asking these devices questions? Today, it's something simple like, you know, "show me a scary movie," and your TV providing a recommendation.
One of the big games coming out this week is Event--available for Windows and Mac on September 14th. It's a sci-fi game set in an alternate retrofuture reality in which humanity built a starship in 1985 and has since embraced artificial intelligence even more than we have now. The events depicted in the game take place in 2012, on board a starship, where you, the player, are left alone with an insecure AI known as Kaizen. The idea is to explore the ship (which requires completing some hacking puzzles) in order to gather items and information. With this, you can then talk to Kaizen through the terminals located across the ship, in order to make it trust you a little more.
Editor's note: This is the latest in an exclusive UpTech series about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and much more as part of a partnership between YourLocalStudio.com and WRAL TechWire. Previous posts can be found by searching "Uptech" at WRAL TechWire.com. Interviews are conducted by Alexander Ferguson, CEO of YourLocalStudio.com. In this deep dive video, we hear from Dr. Chris Hazard, a unique figure in the world of artificial intelligence who draws from experience in software development, psychology, physics, economics, hypnosis, robotics, and privacy law. He has worked in and been published in a variety of fields from wireless network infrastructure as a software architect at Motorola, to psychology as part of a post-doc at NCSU, to hypnosis with the National Guild of Hypnotists, to robotics at Kiva Systems, to privacy law working with the Future of Privacy Forum.]
