Project Debater cited sources, pandered to the audience’s affinity for children and veterans, and did a passable job of cracking a relevant joke or two in the process. Here was the scene: a human debater was arguing against the motion that the government should subsidize space exploration. The question, then: did Project Debater simply not understand the criteria, or did it understand and choose not to engage on those terms? Project Debater didn’t get it. Perhaps it might someday help a lawyer structure their arguments, “not that Project Debater would make a very good lawyer,” he joked.
