IBM showcases latest A.I. advancements on Bloomberg’s “That’s Debatable” TV show

Is it time to redistribute the wealth?

That's the topic two former Clinton administration officials, a former Greek finance minister and a researcher who has studied the economics of prostitution, explored in a televised debate tonight—with a little help from IBM's latest artificial intelligence software.

The debate, which aired on Bloomberg's cable television channel in the U.S. at 7 p.m. New York time, is the debut episode of a series called "That's Debatable." Each episode will feature a debate on a different topic. The show is produced by the media and events company Intelligence Squared and Bloomberg, with sponsorship from Big Blue. John Donvan, an Emmy-winning journalist who has moderated debates for Intelligence Squared since 2008, is serving as the show's host and moderator.
