MIT's Latest AI Can Rewrite Outdated Wikipe
Writers, editors, and researchers: Hold on to your red pens. Because MIT-powered A.I. may be coming for your jobs.
If this scares you, reader, imagine how much it scares us.
But have no fear, because the system will always require some human assistance, according to the study’s co-author and MIT Ph.D. student Darsh Shah.
「We are trying to make tasks that are somewhat straightforward to be done by machines, we don’t want to replace humans,」 Shah told Digital Trends. 「It is not replacing, just aiding.」
Current bots that troll encyclopedia-esque sites like Wikipedia typically try to prevent vandalism and identify whether the source of edits is accurate, but that 8217;s different than the kind of structured, contextual, and coherent edits Shah and his team aim for.
There is also a fact-checking and neutrality component, co-author Tal Schuster said. The system reads for 「polarizing」 words that conflict with the most current information and even has a deletion feature.
「It can offer and suggest edits, but at the end of the day, a human user can make the final call,」 Schuster said.
Schuster and Shah see the system operating primarily in the medical field, where new studies, prescription drugs, and technology are constantly being published and updated.标签：
