Scientists teach robots human behavior by reading fiction




A group of scientists is trying to learn how people will react to different situations, a system of artificial intelligence. They do this by making the system read many fiction stories.

Researchers working at Stanford University in the United States have developed an artificial intelligence system called Augur, as reports The Stack. With smart algorithms to enable them to assess human behavior, so it can be anticipated this. Do they have a writer community where 600,000 stories are stored using the database of Wattpad. Which can be used by the AI ​​to gain an insight into human behavior. Although it is fiction, the scientists say that would indicate how people actually work in such “normal” human behavior is much more common than dramatized behavior, making it a good idea.

To test whether the idea works, researchers have used a camera system which is driven by Augur. According to Stanford University could make the system in 91 percent of cases, the correct distinction between objects and people. In addition, could be classified correctly in 71 percent of cases, a person’s behavior. That does Augur by establishing links between different actions. As the example of a driver, for example, can go honking, do the window open or closed, the radio can turn on or belt can do.

In the paper which scientists have online put , you can still find many other examples of how Augur assesses human behavior. According to the researchers, the next step is implementation in many other applications, including machine learning systems, though they have no exact information yet about
