An AI Researcher's Exploration of 200 Machine Learning Tools

#artificialintelligence

To better understand the landscape of available tools for machine learning production, I decided to look up every AI/ML tool I could find. After filtering out applications companies (e.g. companies that use ML to provide business analytics), tools that aren't being actively developed, and tools that nobody uses, I got 202 tools. Please let me know if there are tools you think I should include but aren't on the list yet! The landscape is under-developed IV. I categorize the tools based on which step of the workflow that it supports. I don't include Project setup since it requires project management tools, not ML tools.


Java To Python And Back, AI That Translates Programming Languages

#artificialintelligence

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia spent around $750 million and 5 years of work to convert its platform from COBOL to Java. Migrating an existing codebase to a modern or more efficient language like Java or C requires expertise in both the source and target languages, and is often costly. Usually, a transcompiler is deployed that converts source code from a high-level programming language (such as C or Python) to another. Transcompilers are primarily used for interoperability, and to port codebases written in an obsolete or deprecated language (e.g. They typically rely on handcrafted rewrite rules, applied to the source code abstract syntax tree.


In English, Machine Translation Makes You Sound Like a Man in His Middle Age

#artificialintelligence

MARKETING 24/06/2020 In English, Machine Translation Makes You Sound Like a Man in His Middle Age THREE BOCCONI SCHOLARS FOUND AN ALGORITHMIC BIAS IN THE SYSTEMS OF GOOGLE, BING, AND DEEPL, WHEN TRANSLATING FROM SEVERAL EUROPEAN LANGUAGES INTO ENGLISH Imagine a child raised in a village inhabited only by middle-aged men. For the first ten years of her life, she only hears males in their 60s talking of work, books, sports, health, and money. What kind of weird language do you think she will speak when she leaves the village? Something similar happens to the most common machine translation systems, according to a new study by Dirk Hovy, an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Bocconi, and two Postdoctoral Researchers in his lab, Federico Bianchi and Tommaso Fornaciari. To train a translation system based on machine learning, you feed it with large amounts of texts and let it learn by experience.


Tools For Building Machine Learning Models On Android

#artificialintelligence

Ever since Android first came into existence in 2008, it has become the world's biggest mobile platform in terms of popularity and number of users. Over the years, Android developers have built advances in machine learning, features like on-device speech recognition, real-time video interactiveness, and real-time enhancements when taking a photo/selfie. In addition, image recognition with machine learning can enable users to point their smartphone camera at text and have it live-translated into 88 different languages with the help of Google Translate. Android users can even point your camera at a beautiful flower, use Google Lens to identify what type of flower that is, and then set a reminder to order a bouquet for someone. Google Lens is able to use computer vision models to expand and speed up web search and mobile experience.


A Game Of Telephone: How Accurate Can Translation Really Be?

#artificialintelligence

Imagine sitting in a circle with a few people where each of you knows only two languages -- one shared with the person on your left, and one shared with the person on your right. If you say something to the person on your right and ask them to pass on the message, it might very well be that, after being passed along all the languages, it comes out sounding very different from the original message. This might seem like a very weird game of Telephone to you, but in the same way that whispering impairs your ability to hear the message, so translation works as an imperfect communication channel. When you try to translate a message into a different language, you can change its intended meaning without being aware of it. Oftentimes messages are subjective, ambiguous, or, in some cases, even impossible to represent without any loss of information. But why is translation such a challenge? And in being so, can we ever achieve such a thing as a perfect translation?

The translated result is sent to the result queue. The Vision API can detect and extract text from images. You can actually do a lot of things with the help of the Google Translate API ranging from detecting languages to simple text translation, setting source and destination languages, and translating entire lists of text phrases. In this article, you will see how to work with the Google Translate API in the Python programming language. What is Artificial Intelligence: According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Artificial Intelligence is "a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers" with "the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior".


How Google is using emerging AI techniques to improve language translation quality

#artificialintelligence

Google says it's made progress toward improving translation quality for languages that don't have a copious amount of written text. In a forthcoming blog post, the company details new innovations that have enhanced the user experience in the 108 languages (particularly in data-poor languages Yoruba and Malayalam) supported by Google Translate, its service that translates an average of 150 billion words daily. In the 13 years since the public debut of Google Translate, techniques like neural machine translation, rewriting-based paradigms, and on-device processing have led to quantifiable leaps in the platform's translation accuracy. But until recently, even the state-of-the-art algorithms underpinning Translate lagged behind human performance. Efforts beyond Google illustrate the magnitude of the problem -- the Masakhane project, which aims to render thousands of languages on the African continent automatically translatable, has yet to move beyond the data-gathering and transcription phase.


Machine Translation for Manufacturing: A Case Study at Ford Motor Company

AI Magazine

Machine translation (MT) was one of the first applications of artificial intelligence technology that was deployed to solve real-world problems. Since the early 1960s, researchers have been building and utilizing computer systems that can translate from one language to another without requiring extensive human intervention. In the late 1990s, Ford Vehicle Operations began working with Systran Software Inc. to adapt and customize its machine-translation technology in order to translate Ford's vehicle assembly build instructions from English to German, Spanish, Dutch, and Portuguese. The use of machine translation was made necessary by the vast amount of dynamic information that needed to be translated in a timely fashion. The assembly build instructions at Ford contain text written in a controlled language as well as unstructured remarks and comments.


Covid-19 Is History's Biggest Translation Challenge

WIRED

You, a person who's currently on the English-speaking internet in The Year of The Pandemic, have definitely seen public service information about Covid-19. You've probably been unable to escape seeing quite a lot of it, both online and offline, from handwashing posters to social distancing tape to instructional videos for face covering. But if we want to avoid a pandemic spreading to all the humans in the world, this information also has to reach all the humans of the world--and that means translating Covid PSAs into as many languages as possible, in ways that are accurate and culturally appropriate. It's easy to overlook how important language is for health if you're on the English-speaking internet, where "is this headache actually something to worry about?" is only a quick Wikipedia article or WebMD search away. For over half of the world's population, people can't expect to Google their symptoms, nor even necessarily get a pamphlet from their doctor explaining their diagnosis, because it's not available in a language they can understand.
