Hitachi, Ltd. Develops New Basic Artificial Intelligence Technology

Hitachi Ltd. has announced the development of a basic artificial intelligence technology, a technology that analyzes text data on issues that are subject to debate, and presents reasons and grounds for either affirmative or negative opinions on those issues in English. This technology focuses on values such as health, economics and public safety, which are considered important to people and communities when expressing opinions, and uses correlations between those various values and relevant issues in the society to identify reasons and grounds with a high degree of reliability from among large volumes of news articles. By using multiple viewpoints, it is able to present reasons and grounds without bias toward a single perspective. This is a basic technology that will contribute to artificial intelligence enabling logical dialogue between humans and computers. The technology could be applied to future systems to analyze contents of company documents, published reports or electronic medical records, in order to form opinions and generate data to support decision making. When giving reasons or grounds for opinions on a question that is subject to debate, it is assumed that people use their own respective viewpoints. Hitachi focused on values such as health, economics and public safety, which are considered important to people and communities, and created a Value Dictionary that systematically organizes those values based on a database - a database that records affirmative and negative opinions regarding a large number of discussion topics. Specifically, a list of values that serve as a basis of decision-making by people or communities, and the system extracts words demonstrating a strong relationship to the values based on the frequency of use in the database, designating those words either as positive or negative in relation to those values. Furthermore, the values and relevant words were systematically arranged by assigning a score according to importance based on the frequency of use. For example, in the case of the value Health, the relations with words, such as exercise which is positive, and disease and obesity which are negative, were systematically arranged. The system identifies the types of values encompassed in recorded issues, from among the various sentences used in large volumes of news articles, and creates database expressing whether those issues have positive or negative effects on those values. Using this method, the system created approximately 250 million metadata from around 9.7 million news articles. The system uses this huge volume of metadata as well as the Value Dictionary outlined in above to select multiple values with strong correlations with a given topic from among the many news articles. By searching for sentences in all of the news articles that contain one of these values, the system extracts sentences that could potentially serve as reasons or grounds for agreement or disagreement with the topic in question. The sentences extracted using the Value Dictionary and the Metadata are scored based on the source of the quote, the numerical evidence and the rhetorical expressions in order to estimate whether the sentences have a strong correlation with the specified topic and value. By processing all of the sentences that could potentially serve as reasons or grounds for opinions, and evaluating scores, it is possible to select and present reliable grounds. In order to increase processing speed and present responses within a designated time period, Hitachi constructed an architecture to realize asynchronous distributed processing of multiple algorithms in the various processes, from the analysis of the main topic to the selection of values, the article search and the presentation of reasons and grounds for opinions. This architecture executes parallel distributed processing of algorithms while at the same time executing asynchronous processing to the next process, in order to extract the desired grounds within the specified period of time. These technologies were developed with the cooperation of the Inui-Okazaki Laboratory, Graduate School of Information Sciences, Tohoku University.
