In other words, recently IBM introduces Project Debater, an AI project which is designed to participate in a live debate with expert human debaters. In this project, NLP (natural language processing) has been used to make more clarity in the conversation.
OpenAI is an AI research company which focuses on reinforcement learning. It is viewed as a competitor of Deepmind. It has introduced many applications like openAI gym, debate game, Dactyl, etc.
OpenAI Gym is a toolkit which is used for developing a better algorithm. It helps to teach agents everything from walking to running. And Debate game trains machines to debate with human judges on toy problems and helps in making AI decisions. A year ago, OpenAI has received a US $1billion investment from Microsoft.
Microsoft replaces journalists with AI. It uses algorithms to identify new trending stories. There is one software we are aware of i.e. Cortana.
Cortana is a virtual assistant software that uses NLP(natural language processing) to perform tasks and answering the question to the user. NLP is a part of AI.
