AI learns to predict human reactions by reading our fiction

A team of Stanford researchers have developed a novel means of teaching artificial intelligence systems how to predict a human’s response to their actions. They’ve given their knowledge base, dubbed Augur, access to online writing community Wattpad and its archive of more than 600,000 stories. This information will enable support vector machines (basically,learning algorithms) to better predict what people do in the face of various stimuli.
