@fmf saidI actually think it brings a lot to the table.
If you have to resort to using artificial intelligence, then maybe you should be chatting with someone else.
Check this out:
Artificial intelligence can help augment a good discussion in various ways, depending on the context and the goal of the conversation. Here are some possible scenarios where AI can assist human participants in having a productive and meaningful discussion:
AI can act as a moderator or a facilitator, providing guidance, feedback, and suggestions to the human participants. For example, AI can help structure the discussion, keep track of the main points and arguments, identify areas of agreement and disagreement, encourage respectful and constructive dialogue, and summarize the outcomes of the discussion. AI can also intervene when there are signs of conflict, misunderstanding, or bias, and help resolve them by clarifying the facts, providing relevant information, or suggesting alternative perspectives.
A recent example of such an AI system is IBM’s Project Debater1, which can engage in a debate with a human opponent on a given topic, using natural language processing, machine learning, and argumentation theory.
AI can act as a participant or a collaborator, contributing its own ideas, opinions, and insights to the discussion.
For example, AI can provide relevant information, data, or evidence to support or challenge a claim, generate novel or creative solutions to a problem, or offer different viewpoints or perspectives on an issue. AI can also learn from the human participants, adapting its responses and behavior to their preferences, feedback, and goals. A recent example of such an AI system is OpenAI’s GPT-32, which can generate natural language texts on various topics and tasks, using deep neural networks and large-scale language models.
AI can act as an enhancer or an amplifier, improving the quality and effectiveness of the discussion. For example, AI can help translate languages, transcribe speech, summarize texts, visualize data, or generate graphics to facilitate communication and understanding among the human participants. AI can also help analyze the discussion, identifying patterns, trends, gaps, or biases in the content or the process of the conversation. AI can then provide feedback, recommendations, or interventions to improve the discussion outcomes. A recent example of such an AI system is McKinsey’s Notes from the AI Frontier3, which provides insights from hundreds of use cases of AI across various sectors and domains.
These are just some of the ways that artificial intelligence can help augment a good discussion. However, it is important to note that AI is not a substitute for human intelligence, judgment, or values. AI is still limited by its data sources, algorithms, and design choices, and may not always be reliable, accurate, fair, or ethical. Therefore, human participants should always be aware of the strengths and limitations of AI systems, and exercise critical thinking and responsibility when using them in discussions.
I think we both can look forward to seeing how AI can clear up some of these matters when certain posters try to dishonestly reduce the scope of the conversation, for instance.
