Talk on Project Debater (Tomorrow)

Invitation to the ISSIP Cognitive Systems Institute Group Webinar

Please join us for the next ISSIP CSIG Speaker Series    "IBM Project Debater"

Noam Slonim, IBM, When:  Thursday, May 23, 10:30am - US Eastern

Zoom Detail Below

Background:

Dr. Noam Slonim is a Distinguished Engineer at IBM Research AI. Noam completed his PhD at the Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Computation at the Hebrew University in 2002. After a few years as an Associate Research Scholar at the Genomics Institute at Princeton University, Noam joined IBM Research in 2007. In 2011, he proposed Project Debater as the next Grand Challenge for IBM Research, and he serves as the Principal Investigator of Project Debater since then.


Task Description:

Project Debater is the first AI system developed to compete in a full-live debate with a human debater. The project, an IBM Grand Challenge, is designed to build coherent, convincing speeches on its own, as well as provide rebuttals to the opponent's main arguments. In February 2019, Project Debater competed against Harish Natarajan, who holds the world record for most debate victories, in an event held in San Francisco and broadcasted live world-wide. In this talk I will tell the story of Project Debater, from conception to a climatic final event, describe its underlying technology, and discuss how it can be leveraged for advancing decision making and critical thinking.

Date and Time : May 23 2019 - 10:30am US Eastern
