MS Word – automated formatting of text documents treatement with artificial intelligence

We have several hundred employees processing word documents, mainly applying some defined rules on how the final document should look like. Some of those rules are: title formating, figure positions, text style among others.

I would like to optimise this process and replace the human by AI. The human will move from processing to quality control (QC) so we will have a much higher quality.

  • My question is: How to approach this problem and what would you recommend as initial start point?

Background: I am new to AI, although I’ve been following this topic closely for about a year, and want to move forward with implementation. I have experience with VBA, PHP, C, C++, and some other languages.

Constraints of embedded Artificial Intelligence for a robot

So I was wondering about the actual constraints in the field of Artificially Intelligent agent/robot. We have been able to replicate most of human sensory functions like:

  • Vision – Computer Algorithms can perform better image classification tasks.
  • Touch – A physical object more sensitive than skin can be modelled easily.
  • Taste and smell – Although there are electro-mechanical tongues, since taste and smell and related it is quite complex to model (i.e. no satisfactory devices exist).
  • Hearing – All types of high fidelity audio recording devices are available.

We have also got processors for these sensors:

  • Memory – We have got memory running into exabytes probably.
  • Processing power – We have got a high processing power, albeit it falls somewhat short of human brain according to this answer.
  • Algorithms – We have got highly developed purely logical algorithms, or we can easily Machine Learn and approximate results of unknown algorithms.
  • We can also model the human anatomy of various physical functions like walking/running/exercising, etc, like this mechanical cheetah my MIT students.

So my question is what is stopping us from stringing together all this to actually device a quite good Artificially Intelligent agent? What are the constraining factors and how are we trying to overcome it?

My wording maybe little bit off, you are free to edit the question keeping the general theme same.

THE QUESTION IS ABOUT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE [closed]

Right now I am posting questions,answers and comments ON MY PC-LAPTOP} computer using my wits which is normally needed by a computer.postings are for the main site of theoretical computer science.computer operators{or any higher capacity} of theoretical computer science, likewise posting answers to my questions,posting questions asking clarifications and commenting at the other end.Is this a case of artificial intelligence,where human intelligence of the posters at both ends are actively in force,because both sides are exercising their wits and using their computers simultaneously.Theoretical computer science main site has asked to be clear about my specific problem and highlight the details about my problem[and to see the help center rules} I saw the rules of the help center.Can I be said to be having artificial intelligence. for I have earned badges,reputations because my posts were helpful? or I am following an order of a Robot,As per Little oxford English dictionary{Indian edition} English meanings of the phrase AI and of the words like want,need {translations of many words are doings of Robots,At least it seems} — gives that indication–=”.Digital reading is or should be a highly creative process.creativity,in the sense that every reader”writes” their own text-makes their own connections-is built in to Wikipedia and into the internet in general.from a biological point of view,it could be argued that such creativity depends on the nature of the links one has succeeded in establishing between the neurons in one”s brain.to be human is to make connections.”-Quoted from Wikipedia by DAN O’SULLIVAN

Does China plan to launch artificial moons?

A recent news report suggests that China has an ambitious plan:

to send three artificial moons into space in the next four years

that would be

bright enough to replace the streetlights in the south-western city of Chengdu by 2020

The source of the report is “state media People’s Daily” (but also the state-run Xinhua media agency) and quotes are attributed to “Wu Chunfeng, chairman of Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Corporation”.

This sounds like a hoax or legend to me.

Attempts to Google that company just lead to variants of this report, although the vaguaries of translations mean this doesn’t mean the company doesn’t exist on the web.

Putting aside whether the plans are technically feasible and/or funded, is there are private or public effort to launch satellites that illuminate cities in China?

Is it fair to categorize the neurons in the output layer of artificial neural networks as grandmother cells?

I’m interested in how memory is distributed in the brain. That inevitably leads one to think about grandmother cells.

Under my interpretation, a neuron (or a small ensemble) would classify as a grandmother cell, if it activates, without fail, whenever a specific stimulus is presented to a subject, over an extended period of time.

To my knowledge, there is no evidence for the existence of such neurons, except some experiments that show the activation of specific neurons for a short period of time between trial sessions. The last part is important, because to my understanding grandmother cells are explicitly about long term memory.

If I look at most artificial neural networks however, the cells in the output layer usually exactly fit this definition. You can easily train a network to recognize pictures of your grandmother and consistently find the exact same cells active during evaluation whenever such a picture is presented. That’s important for a computer of course, because it needs to have a consistent way of telling something is learned.

This would be an important difference to the brain though, because one could argue that any system, involving grandmother cells and that has only a limited number of cells, eventually suffers from overfitting or at least very limited generality.

Is this assessment fair? Is my definition wrong, somehow? Did I miss some evidence?

THE QUESTION IS ABOUT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE [on hold]

TIM-BERNERS-LEE inventor of the world wide web might be cited in support of this question.in an extreme view the world can be seen as only connections,nothing else.we think of a dictionary,as the repository of meaning,but it defines words only in terms of other words.i liked the idea that a piece of information is really defined only by what it’s related to and how it”s related.there really is little else to meaning.the structure is everything.there are billions of neurons in our brains.but what are neurons?just cells.the brain has no knowledge until connections are made between neurons.all that we know,all that we are, comes from the way our neurons are connected.To add further Turing test which Alan Turing proposed to test if a computer had artificial intelligence.Turing proposed that if an interrogator wrote down a set of questions on a piece of paper and received written down answers from a computer,but could not tell if a human had written those answers or a machine,then this machine according to Turing was therefore intelligent.According to LITTLE OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY-INDIAN EDITION,Artificial intelligence is the performance by computers of tasks that normally need human intelligence{the dictionary definition is the doings of a machine}. When we post a question, we receive written down answers from a machine but do not know if a human had written the answers or a machine.then the machine is therefore intelligent.we also post our answers which matches our wits.The books on artificial intelligence are likely to be innumerable. posting of questions and of answers require varying degree of intelligence.{Quoted from wikipedia-DAN O”SULLIVAN AND also from Q/A of this site}.can I liken my question with other worthy questions?.I always bear in mind,the brain has no knowledge until connections are made between two neurons.it could be said that creativity depends upon the nature of links one succeeds in establishing between the neurons in one”s brain.DIGITAL READING ,is and should be,a highly creative process.In what degree we are successful is reflected in the questions and answers we post- these should be taken into account aside from our intelligence level.To be human is to make connections.
