Text 2.0

April 20, 2010

In the thousands of years since humanity developed writing, we’ve come up with countless variations on its production, storage and transmission. People have written in pictures, words and ideograms, on paper, stone, clay and papyrus, and shared their words through books, telegraphs and now the Internet. But the act of reading has remained essentially the same: a passive process where words on a page (or what have you) are consumed by the reader.
Now a German Artificial Intelligence researcher has developed a new approach to text. By combining AI with a simple eye tracking device, Ralf Biedert and his colleagues working at the German Research Center for AI have come up with active text. Predictably dubbed Text 2.0, this new approach to text follows the attention of the reader and automatically produces content in response to the rates of speed and latency time on specific words. By submitting this information to the AI at the heart of Text 2.0 the computer can provide translations or definitions for unknown words, give pronunciation tips or even highlight important words in a sentence to facilitate speed reading or skimming.
If you’re interested, there’s a fascinating video demonstration of the technology here: http://hplusmagazine.com/articles/ai/does-headline-know-you%E2%80%99re-reading-it.
