An artificial intelligence (AI) system capable of analyzing natural speech and surpassing a person in this may appear in Russia by the end of 2021, Mikhail Antonov, the deputy general director of RVC for innovation infrastructure, told RIA Novosti.
The system is being developed as part of the Up Great technology competition for AI speech systems developers. The 200 million roubles prize fund will be shared by the AI systems developers capable of finding the maximum number of speech and grammatical errors in competitive essays in Russian and English and literature. To win, the AI will have to check the texts in 30 seconds, but no worse than the average teacher.
More than 200 applications have been submitted for the competition, including from the developers of text analysis systems Pavlov, Antiplagiat, Laboratory of Nanosemantics, and the largest Russian universities.
