(Some Guy)   Scientists using AI to identify irony in speech get the definition of irony wrong. Well isn't that sarcastic, don't you think?   ( felix.syntheticspeech.de) divider line

It's like linking straight to a .pdf file without warning, when you know that pisses people off.

Irony is not when it rains rain on your wedding day. Irony is when it rains whores at the reception.

Also, and I feel I can't stress this enough, there is no goddam mutherfrkkin artificial intelligence you stupid meatbag pieces of shjit. Although I suppose if you are comparing it to the kludgy abstract judderings of your own little simian goo-bags, I'm not surprised you were in error.

I swear, the next demographic to start buying sniper rifles and clown suits will be the linguistic prescriptionists. And I already have three clown suits and one good eye.

Also, "grow" doesn't take an object, you bloody tin-eared tongue-heretics. And the next time I hear "impactfully" somebody's going to meet Jesus. Get offa my lawnguage, you ne'er-do-well scalawags!

I could care less about this. Literally.

Hrm. If they use the wrong definition, but the wrong definition results in the correct detection of the wrong quality, isn't that technically a success? They detected what they sought, only they described it poorly.

jarrett: Oh, an irony detector, that's a real useful invention.

If it was useful, that would be ironic.
