Artificial Intelligence has a Little Problem with Sarcasm

A new paper from researchers in India and Australia highlights one of the strangest and ironically most humorous facets of the problems in machine learning – humour.

Automatic Sarcasm Detection: A Survey [PDF] outlines ten years of research efforts from groups interested in detecting sarcasm in online sources. The problem is not an abstract one, nor does it centre around the need for computers to entertain or amuse humans, but rather the need to recognise that sarcasm in online comments, tweets and other internet material should not be interpreted as sincere opinion.

The need applies both in order for AIs to accurately assess archive material or interpret existing datasets, and in the field of sentiment analysis, where a neural network or other model of AI seeks to interpret data based on publicly posted web material.

Yeah, right.

That's an awful lot of interest in online commenting

I'm not certain if this has a work around.
Tons of people don't get sarcasm.

yup.gif Exactly. How does one logically program something that abstract.

It's got a dangerous potential.
And what about Jesus on the cross when he said to the thief...
"I'll see you in my father's kingdom"
I don't know, but that sounds sarcastic to me.
Point being, how does one differentiate enough in the first place to program a machine to recognize sarcasm.

And more importantly; Why?

What information is so important to them that online conversations are to be scanned and analyzed?
