Today, Peter Diamandis and Chris Anderson, the heads of the XPrize
Foundation and the TED series of conferences respectively, announced a
new XPrize, in the field of artificial intelligence. The winner will be
the first to develop an AI system capable of independently delivering "a
compelling TED talk with no human involvement."
The originators of the prize are soliciting public input as to what the rules and criteria of the prize should be, apart from
the talent-show-esque "a TED Talk so compelling that it commands a
standing ovation from you, the audience."
We wait eagerly to find out what an AI will choose to talk about from the TED stage.
