XPrize for the automated creation of TED Talks

analytics.pngThe TED Conference announced an Artificial Intelligence XPRIZE today. The goal of TED curator Chris Andersen and Peter Diamandis, founder of the X PRIZE foundation, is to have an AI capable of giving a TED talk “so compelling  that it commands a standing ovation from... the audience.”


If this interests you, they are asking for your help in setting up the rules – see the on-line A.I. Xprize Ideas form.


I’ve mentioned before the automation of knowledge worker activities, the likely decline of middle management as we know it and how even artistic endeavors can at least be supplemented with automation. Maybe the results of this XPrize will make the boring corporate presentation obsolete
