Idea #7 The Artifical Intelligence is at our door!
When robots try to become “human”
Two weeks ago, we saw a large-scale experimentation run and finally fail – we mean Twitter, Kik and GroupMe – of a bot chat (conversational robot) simulating on-line presence and Conversations of a 19-year-old North American girl named “Tay” for the occasion.
The robot, which has been put to the test by Internet users (not to say trolls), has very quickly reached its limits, ending up with racist, sexist, even revisionist theories or complotists, Tweets it emitted. Learning in real time of his conversations with Internet users, Tay was put to the test, and absorbed all the worst crossings of the Internet in less than 24 hours, pushed in its retrenchments by unscrupulous interlocutors, or at least curious to discover the limits of such a technology.
A fiasco for Microsoft would you tell me? Well not that much. A badbuzz is still a buzz: “If Tay missed his gigantic test of Turing, the experience is nevertheless successful: the machine has perfectly integrated the codes of language of our contemporaries and reused them to perfection. In other words, Microsoft has created a convincing parrot. “And this global giant is not on its first try: testing an experience like this one joins many other past experiments or in progress, concerning artificial intelligence, which augur many applications in the years to come.
Recent advances in artificial intelligence and the potential for use of artificial intelligence are beginning to point to the important role that AI will have in our daily lives in the near future. From automated on-line service to street advertising displays, literally adapting to the people posted in front of them, delivering personalized messages for example, the next challenges to be met announce themselves as creative as technological orders.
