Machine Translation

NEW: Document Translation feature available on Eden AI


Quickly and easily translate multiple documents with just a few simple steps. With Eden AI, you can start translating your documents in seconds and save valuable time and resources. While Machine Translation refers to the translation of a text into another language using rules, statics or ML technics, Document Translation can be used to translate multiple and complex documents into all supported languages and dialects while maintaining the original document structure and data format. Document Translation API can be used to support multi-lingual websites, chatbot, mobile applications etc. It can translate the document in real-time or as a batch process.

AI translation firm unveils 'world-first' timeline to singularity


An Italian company has unveiled a novel method of measuring AI progress: analyzing improvements in machine translation. Translated, a provider of translation services, used the approach to predict when we will achieve singularity, a vague concept often defined as the point where machines become smarter than humans. The Rome-based business sets this milestone at the moment when AI provides "a perfect translation." According to the new research, this arrives when machine translation (MT) is better than top human translations. Translated's analysis suggests this will happen before the end of the 2020s.

Google Research, 2022 & Beyond: Language, Vision and Generative Models – Google AI Blog


I've always been interested in computers because of their ability to help people better understand the world around them. Over the last decade, much of the research done at Google has been in pursuit of a similar vision -- to help people better understand the world around them and get things done. We want to build more capable machines that partner with people to accomplish a huge variety of tasks. Analysis and synthesis tasks, like crafting new documents or emails from a few sentences of guidance, or partnering with people to jointly write software together. We want to solve complex mathematical or scientific problems. Transform modalities, or translate the world's information into any language. Diagnose complex diseases, or understand the physical world. We've demonstrated early versions of some of these capabilities in research artifacts, and we've partnered with many teams across Google to ship some of these capabilities in Google products that touch the lives of billions of users. But the most exciting aspects of this journey still lie ahead! With this post, I am kicking off a series in which researchers across Google will highlight some exciting progress we've made in 2022 and present our vision for 2023 and beyond. I will begin with a discussion of language, computer vision, multi-modal models, and generative machine learning models.

Applying Machine Learning to Everyday Life


The use of navigation, online purchases, social media browsing, or streaming services is all impacted by machine learning in one way or another. FREMONT, CA: A new wave of attention is being paid to machine learning, a subset of artificial intelligence. A resurgence in interest in big data is attributed to many factors, including powerful and affordable computational processing, increasing volumes of big data sets, and affordable data storage options. Machine learning is teaching machines to recognize patterns in data and apply them to specific problems. Whenever new data is presented to machine learning models, they adapt independently to make sense of it.

An A.I. Translation Tool Can Help Save Dying Languages. But at What Cost?


Sanjib Chaudhary chanced upon StoryWeaver, a multilingual children's storytelling platform, while searching for books he could read to his 7-year-old daughter. Chaudhary's mother tongue is Kochila Tharu, a language with about 250,000 speakers in eastern Nepal. Languages with a relatively small number of speakers, like Kochila Tharu, do not have enough digitized material for linguistic communities to thrive--no Google Translate, no film or television subtitles, no online newspapers. In industry parlance, these languages are "underserved" and "underresourced." This is where StoryWeaver comes in.

NLP Startup Funding in 2022. It's no secret that the commercial…


It's no secret that the commercial application of NLP technologies has exploded in recent years. From chatbots and virtual assistants to machine translation and sentiment analysis, NLP technologies are now being used in a wide variety of applications across a range of industries. With the increasing demand for technologies that can process human language, investors have been eager to get a piece of the action. In this article, we look at NLP start-up funding over the past year, identifying the applications and domains that have received investment. A version of this article will appear in the Journal of Natural Language Engineering in early 2023.

DeepL targets AI translation for enterprises with fresh $100 million


Check out all the on-demand sessions from the Intelligent Security Summit here. Seeking to target enterprise customers with AI language translation, Cologne, Germany-based DeepL announced a new funding raise that public reports estimate at well over $100 million. Language translation is an increasingly critical function for enterprises working across geographies and different demographics. Basic language translation capabilities have been available on for decades -- for example, services such as Google Translate. But the challenge has been enabling more advanced translation for business use cases that capture not just the literal meaning but the right tone and context.

The potential of generative AI: creating media with simple text prompts - abtlive


Generative AI is a cutting-edge technological advancement that utilises machine learning and artificial intelligence to create new forms of media, such as text, audio, video, and animation. With the advent of advanced machine learning capabilities like large language models, neural translation, information understanding, and reinforcement learning, it is now possible to generate new and creative short and long-form content, synthetic media, and even deepfakes with simple text, also known as prompts. Top technology companies, like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and others, have commercial AI labs researching and publishing academic papers to accelerate these AI innovations. In recent years, we have seen investments in GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks), LLMs (Large Language Models), GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformers), and Image Generation to experiment and, in some cases, create commercial offerings like DALL-E for image generation and ChatGPT for text generation. For example, ChatGPT can write blogs, computer code, and marketing copies and even generate results for search queries.

Building Transformer Models with Attention Crash Course. Build a Neural Machine Translator in 12 Days - Building Transformer Models with Attention Crash Course. Build a Neural Machine Translator in 12 Days -


Moreover, when you look at the diagram of the transformer model and your implementation here, you should notice the diagram shows a softmax layer at the output, but we omitted that. The softmax is indeed added in this lesson. Do you see where is it? In the next lesson, you will train this compiled model, on 14 million parameters as we can see in the summary above. Training the transformer depends on everything you created in all previous lessons. Most importantly, the vectorizer and dataset from Lesson 03 must be saved as they will be reused in this and the next lessons. Running this script will take several hours, but once it is finished, you will have the model saved and the loss and accuracy plotted.
