The only link in this article is to the Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project, and not even to the IBM Project Debater web page that is the subject of the story, which in the light of recent admissions scandals strikes me as somewhat suspicious. There's a nod to "worries that access to the technology might only be available to students at the wealthiest institutions" in the very last paragraph, but otherwise the article is more concerned about whether the AI "really Understands" and how it's not able (yet?) to capture the nuance of an academic debate. More interesting is Speech by Crowd, an AI platform for crowdsourcing decision support inviting users to "share your arguments on debatable topics, and our AI constructs persuasive narratives both pro and con, giving you a fresh perspective."
