2 Cents: IBM vs. People

Central PA Live

A war of words between man and machine.

IBM’s invention called the project debater, debated with a guy named Harish Natarajan Monday.

The debate topic was whether preschool should or should not be subsidized.

Both sides gave a 4-minute speech, a 4-minute rebutal, and a 2-minute closing argument.

Natarajan came away with the win, but the computer was impressive.

Project Debater has been around since 2012 and uses magazine and newspaper articles to gether information for its database.
