Project Debater: An AI system that debates with humans

Eyal is a researcher at IBM Haifa Research Lab. His fields of interest are Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. Eyal leads a team in IBM’s Project Debater - the first AI system that can debate humans on complex topics

Project Debater digests massive texts, constructs a well-structured speech on a given topic, delivers it with clarity and purpose, and rebuts its opponent. Eventually, Project Debater will help people reason by providing compelling, evidence-based arguments and limiting the influence of emotion and bias

Eyal received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Bar Ilan University, where he worked on semantic inference
