Debating Artificial Intelligence

Advanced Research into AI

Highlight

This article describes a debating AI that can debate decision-making matters with humans. Given a discussion issue, the system outputs short argument scripts based on multiple viewpoints. The argument scripts are summarized information with a length of about 10 sentences, which is composed of evidence, analytics, and opinions obtained from large amounts of document data. They can be thought of as a consolidated essence for decision-making. The debating AI can automatically investigate business opportunities and risks on a regular basis from multiple points of view. With the aim of creating an enterprise IT system that drives innovation in organizations, Hitachi is accelerating the development of the debating AI through open collaborative creation.
