What are the key challenges in designing/developing an effective question answering system?
Make no mistake, Quora co-founder Adam D’Angelo is widely reported to have invested in Vicarious (company) – to build “software that thinks and learns like a human”….
Would an AI be allowed to answer questions on Quora?
There is a topic for Quora Bots (Quora feature). I messaged Quora founderCharlie Cheever in 2011 suggesting… a voluntary, opt-in “bot-zone” as a sandbox for question answering bot projects. To a large extent working with question answering bots would depend on the as yet non-existentQuora API. However, question answering bots may also conflict with the work of Quora founder Adam D’Angelo on his Vicarious (company)… “building software that thinks and learns like a human”.
What are the most promising companies currently working on software solutions to the Strong AI question?
Even Quora co-founder Adam D’Angelo‘s Vicarious (company) is worth keeping an eye on.
