Machine Translation


r/MachineLearning - [Project] Multilingual Neural Machine Translation using Transformers with Conditional Normalization.

The goal here is similar, make the rest of the network learn a common representation, while making the normalization parameters learn language specific semantics. The One-to-Many and Many-to-One models are trained for English to French, German, Italian and Spanish Translation and Vice Versa. The Many to Many model is trained on English-French, French-English, English-German and German-English. The image stylization paper specifies how a N-style network can pick up an N 1th style through fine-tuning an existing model. Similarly, I fine-tune my Many-to-Many model to pick up Portuguese.


The Unreasonable Effectiveness Of Neural Machine Translation: A Breakthrough In Temporal Expression Understanding

#artificialintelligence

Written by Rakesh Chada and Marcos Jimenez, data scientists at x.ai. At x.ai we strive to make pain associated with scheduling meetings a thing of the past. We've built a virtual assistant (it goes by the name of Amy or Andrew) who can be cc'd into your typical request to meet with people over email. Amy will "understand" the hand-over and just take it from there with your guests, following up with them to nail the time and location details for the meeting. Under the hood this means that Amy must automatically extract meeting-related pieces of information from your email and, mashing that up with your calendar and overall preferences, proceed to get your guests to agree to a time that works for you and them, plus gather whatever other details are needed for the meeting (phone conference number, meeting room, address, google hangout link, etc …). Now the hard, cool, data-science part. Amy "understanding" all the pieces of information from free-form human text presents us with a number of formidable and fascinating data science challenges. This is the realm of natural language processing (NLP), where recent strides in deep learning have made tackling these problems viable.


Practical guide to Attention mechanism for NLU tasks

#artificialintelligence

Chatbots, virtual assistants, augmented analytic systems typically receive user queries such as "Find me an action movie by Steven Spielberg". This is a Natural Language Understanding (NLU) task kown as Intent Classification & Slot Filling. State-of-the-art performance is typically obtained using recurrent neural network (RNN) based approaches, as well as by leveraging an encoder-decoder architecture with sequence-to-sequence models. In this article we demonstrate hands-on strategies for improving the performance even further by adding Attention mechanism. In 2014, after Sutskever revolutionized deep learning by discovering sequence to sequence models, it was the invention of the attention mechanism in 2015 that ultimately completed the idea and opened the doors to amazing machine translation we enjoy every day.


Facebook founds AI Language Research Consortium to solve challenges in natural language processing

#artificialintelligence

Roughly three months ago, Facebook launched calls for research proposals in three subfields of natural language processing (NLP), the cross-disciplinary study of linguistics and AI concerned with computer-language interactions. It specifically sought "robust" deep learning approaches for NLP and computationally efficient NLP in addition to neural machine translation for low-resource dialects, ultimately in the pursuit of advancing cutting-edge research in machine translation. That was just the start, it would seem. In a blog post today announcing 11 winning proposals among the 115 submitted from 35 countries, Facebook announced the AI Language Research Consortium, a community of partners it says will "work together to advance priority research areas" in NLP. Details were tough to come by at press time, but Facebook says the newly formed group will foster collaboration to tackle challenging tasks like representation learning, content understanding, dialog systems, information extraction, sentiment analysis, summarization, data collection and cleaning, and speech translation.

Machine Translation & Text Analytics: Friends or Foes?

#artificialintelligence

Government agencies face similar challenges when it comes to understanding--and gaining intelligence from-- foreign language content. They need to process, manage and gain insight from large volumes of content locked away in different formats, often across multiple languages. And they need to do all of this as quickly as possible. It's no mean feat when you consider the mindboggling amounts of content being generated: 90% of the world's content was created over the past two years alone. Machine translation and text analytics have always been regarded as the two main ways for organizations and agencies to tackle this challenge.


What makes a good conversation?

This blog post is about the NAACL 2019 paper What makes a good conversation? How controllable attributes affect human judgments by Abigail See, Stephen Roller, Douwe Kiela and Jason Weston. On the left are tasks like Machine Translation (MT), which are less open-ended (i.e. Given the close correspondence between input and output, these tasks can be accomplished mostly (but not entirely) by decisions at the word/phrase level. On the right are tasks like Story Generation and Chitchat Dialogue, which are more open-ended (i.e. For these tasks, the ability to make high-level decisions (e.g.


Cat-heavy puzzle game will take you to A.I. school Cult of Mac

#artificialintelligence

Do you want a fun iPhone game that combines cats with a stealth lesson in artificial intelligence and machine learning? And thanks to the oddly titled while True: learn(), you're about to get your chance. Check out the game's new trailer, which landed ahead of this week's release of while True: learn() on iOS. As can be seen from the above trailer, the game's story deals with a cat who's also a master programmer. You set about making a cat-to-human translation program, and wind up developing a whole bunch of other AI tools, too.


Adding multi-language support for Azure AI applications quickly

#artificialintelligence

There is a growing demand for applications which support speech, language identification, translation or transliteration from one language to another. Complex problems such as these can now be solved using advanced APIs that are readily available without having to reinvent the wheel – no machine learning expertise required! This blog starts off with a brief introduction to machine translation and then explores various topics like identifying the language and how to perform translation/transliteration of spoken or typed text using Microsoft's Translator Text API. In addition, we also discuss how translated or transliterated text can be integrated with LIUS. Machine Translation (MT) encompasses the various tasks involved in converting source text from one language to another.


De-mystifying AI and its potential for further application in a B2B context

#artificialintelligence

AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is often demonised and portrayed as some cyborg entity just about ready to take our jobs and eventually kill us all, but more and more businesses, martech and adtech providers are using different AI subsystems each day to advance their services. The term AI is contentiously used to describe a broad spectrum of systems and software's, the controversy arises from where we can begin to describe a machine as being'intelligent' opposed to simply following complex but nonetheless human-reliant algorithms. Regardless of strict definition, there are helpful systems within the subsets of AI which already exist that B2B marketers need to utilise. Machine learning is a subset of AI that can help marketers to improve productivity by taking over mundane tasks, particularly work involving dissecting datasets (like our Argus platform for example). If you're not already using some forms of machine learning, it might be helpful to understand why some sytstems have been reported to increase the productivity of business by 40% (Source: Accenture) and how you can effectively incorporate machine learning into your marketing strategy.
