The New Scientist tells me that the people at Google Labs are training their bots in natural language processing by feeding them text from the Daily Mail.
This raises two puzzling questions:
- How is it that those behind the Internet’s most successful search engine do not know of the Daily Mail Song?
- If in fact they do know of this song, how could they even start to think that analysis of this newspaper would be a useful step on the path towards artificial intelligence?
But anyway, re-visiting YouTube I find that views of Dan & Dan’s work have recently passed the 2 million mark, so congratulations to both of them.
