Is there a future for automated scientific writing?

Comments Off on Is there a future for automated scientific writing?

The view that the work of a scientific writer consists solely in writing academic and scientific papers is erroneous. After all, he must keep in mind the latest research and their results in certain areas. Only with this knowledge, he can write good scientific work. This knowledge the scientific writer receives from various sources which he attentively studies and analyzes. This allows him to write an academic or scientific work that will be of interest to a wide range of readers.

Due to the wide automation of various processes today the question arises. Can the machine cope with writing interesting and accessible academic work?

A group of American developers and scientists have created an artificial intelligence that can:

  1. Read information from different sources;
  2. Analyze it;
  3. Make brief conclusions.

However, artificial intelligence has not yet been developed to the point where it can completely replace the human work of writing academic papers. It is intended more to help the writer process large amounts of information. Thus, the author familiarizes himself with the main conclusions, which were made machine on specific work.

Original discoveries in the field of artificial intelligence

Scientists and developers, who discovered artificial intelligence capable of reading information and reproducing conclusions on it, initially did not set themselves such a task. They worked on creating a neural network that could solve complex physical tasks. However, in the process of conducting development, they turned attention to such a feature of machines and decided that this could be useful in areas not associated with physics.

Members of the group of scientists and developers, who created artificial intelligence, argue that the focus of their activities is the development and discovery in the field of physics. However, in a number of studies, they have identified some patterns that indicate that this neural network can be used in the field of writing academic papers. This was due to its ability to read information and draw conclusions from it.

The essence of artificial intelligence

The work of artificial intelligence to read and remember information is similar to the process taking place in the human brain at the moment when he acquainted with new information. An analogy can also be drawn with the operation of Photoshop, which uses similar principles of image recognition.

Later, developers created an alternative system, the main element of which was the rotational memory block. The machine recognizes the words of each line with it. The direction of the vector changes from one word to another. The machine has a set of vectors that it converts into words after text recognition.  Artificial intelligence also has the ability to remember and reproduce information according to scientists. This feature can be useful when writing academic papers.

Conducted tests of artificial intelligence

It was revealed that the system is capable of reproducing the read text almost without errors when testing the capabilities of artificial intelligence. The results of the research also showed that the machine can process both simple texts such as abstracts and more complex ones, such as large scientific works.

Today it is impossible to say that the use of artificial intelligence can completely replace the work of man on writing academic works. However, this direction is very promising and scientists can achieve tremendous results if they are to continue its research possibilities of artificial things.
