Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are no longer alien to us as they've become part of the gadgets in our daily use. At the same time, debate over how healthy is AI is raging. In the most recent debate held at Cambridge University, the IBM Project Debater was put on the stand to debate against itself.

The IBM Project Debater was part of a one-of-a-kind event where the robot debated the pros and cons of artificial intelligence. The unique part of the debate was both parties were the IBM Project Debater robots. While one side argued that AI can't make morally correct decisions, the opposite side pitched about the time saved with AI for repetitive, mundane tasks.

One side of the argument said that "Artificial intelligence can only make decisions it has been programmed for and can't program for all scenarios." As opposed to this statement, the IBM machine defended that AI can certainly free up time for humans to concentrate on other productive tasks.

IBM'slead scientist Noam Slonim says that the idea was to test if the debater could use tech to bring out a compelling narrative to help in making better decisions. The debate for AI technology aims to help companies and governments to come to conclusions about AI.

More interestingly, everyone at the debate specter wanted to know which side carried more weight. By the end of the debate, it was concluded that artificial intelligence is capable of doing more good than harm. In the end, the machine ended with a humorous statement: "Let's move to an issue close to my artificial heart: technology," which won appraises from the crowd.
