Artificial intelligence is getting smarter IOL Business Report

#artificialintelligence

A mere four years ago AI was not even able to pass a Grade eight science test. Seven hundred computer scientists competed in a contest with a significant amount of money as prize. They had to build artificial intelligence that could pass a Grade eight science test. The computer scientists did their best, but not even the most advanced AI system could score better than 60percent in the test. It seems that the AI was just not advanced enough to fully reach the language and logic skills expected of students in the eighth grade.


Faking the News with Natural Language Processing and GPT-2

#artificialintelligence

GPT-2 generates text that is far more realistic than any text generation system before it. OpenAI was so shocked by the quality of the output that they decided that the full GPT-2 model was too dangerous to release because it could be used to create endless amounts of fake news that could fool the public or clog up search engines like Google. How easy it is for an average person to generate fake news that could trick a real person and how good are the results? Let's explore how a system like this could work and how much of a threat it is. Let's try to build a newspaper populated with fake, computer generated news: To populate News You Can't Use, we'll create a Python script that can'clone' a news site like the New York Times and generate artificial news stories on the same topics.


Google's AI has written some amazingly mournful poetry (Wired UK)

Artificial intelligence can control self-driving cars, beat the best humans at incredibly complex board games, and fight cancer; but one thing it can't do perfectly is communicate. To help solve the problem, Google has been feeding it's AI with more than 11,000 unpublished books, including 3,000 steamy romance titles. "come with me," she said. "talk to me," she said. "don't worry about it," she said.

How Google is using dead authors to improve its artificial intelligence (Wired UK)

#artificialintelligence

Google is teaching its artificial intelligence how to understand language by making it predict, and replicate, the works of famous dead authors. The company is building systems that are capable of understanding natural language in the same way humans do, with the works of William Shakespeare, Mark Twain and others currently being analysed. "This work has the potential to enrich products through personalisation," Marc Pickett from Google's Natural Language Understanding research group wrote in a recent blog post. Researchers training the deep neural network -- using the work of authors from Project Gutenberg -- fed the AI an input sentence and asked it to say what would come next. The network is given millions of lines from a "jumble" of authors and then works out the style of individual writers.
