ATG Quirkies: Google Wants You to Have a Relationship With Its Dataset

According to this post in the Guardian  Google has recently swallowed 11,000 novels to improve AI’s conversation. It seems that “after feeding these books into a neural network, the system was able to generate fluent, natural-sounding sentences. According to a Google spokesman – who didn’t want to be named – products such as the Google app will be “much more useful if they can capture the nuance of language better.”

Of course this raises some questions from groups like the Authors Guild who think that tech giant’s processing of their work without permission amounts to a “blatantly commercial use of expressive authorship.”
