Vortrag und Diskussion: “AI in the Middle Between Authors and Learners”
So far we know of exactly one system in which trillions of facts are transmitted to billions of learners: the system of publishing the written word. No other system comes within a factor of a million of this performance benchmark. This is despite the fact that the written word is notoriously imprecise and ambiguous.
In the early days of AI, most work was on creating a new system of transmission — a new representation language, and/or a new axiomization of a domain. Well-structured data was manipulated by sound means. One near future for AI is “in the middle” between author and reader. It will remain expensive to create knowledge in any formal language but AI can leverage the work of millions of authors by understanding, classifying, prioritizing, translating, summarizing and presenting the written word in an intelligent just-in-time basis to billions of potential readers.
