Microsoft opens dataset for teaching computers to talk

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft is trying to help create machines that can have conversations by releasing a new set of data for free. The data, called the Microsoft Machine Reading Comprehension dataset (MS MARCO) is a bundle of 100,000 English queries along with corresponding answers. It's supposed to help people build artificial intelligence systems that can understand human written language. The company is opening up its dataset in the hope that Microsoft can work with other organizations on making machines better at reading comprehension, said Rangan Majumder, program manager for the Microsoft Partner Group, in a blog post on Friday. The queries in MS MARCO are based on anonymized questions that were submitted to Microsoft's Bing search engine and Cortana virtual assistant.

Microsoft dataset aims to help researchers create tools to answer questions as well as people - Next at Microsoft

Microsoft has released a set of 100,000 questions and answers that artificial intelligence researchers can use in their quest to create systems that can read and answer questions as well as a human. The dataset is called MS MARCO, which stands for Microsoft MAchine Reading COmprehension, and the team behind it says it's the most useful dataset of its kind because it is based on anonymized real-world data. By making it broadly available for free to researchers, the team is hoping to spur the kind of breakthroughs in machine reading that are already happening in image and speech recognition. They also hope to facilitate the kind of advances that could lead to the long-term goal of'artificial general intelligence,' or machines that can think like humans. "In order to move towards artificial general intelligence, we need to take a step towards being able to read a document and understand it as well as a person," said Rangan Majumder, a partner group program manager with Microsoft's Bing search engine division who is leading the effort.

NEW YORK: Microsoft has released a set of 100,000 questions and answers that artificial intelligence (AI) researchers can use to create systems that can read and answer questions as precisely as a human. "The dataset is called MS MARCO, which stands for Microsoft MAchine Reading COmprehension, and can be used to teach artificial intelligence systems to recognise questions and formulate answers and, eventually, to create systems that can come up with their own answers based on unique questions they have not seen before," said Microsoft in a blog post. By providing realistic questions and answers, the researchers said they can train systems to better deal with the nuances and complexities of questions regular people actually ask, including those queries that have no clear answer or multiple possible answers. "Our dataset is designed not only using real-world data but also removing such constraints so that the new-generation deep learning models can understand the data first before they answer questions," added Li Deng, Partner Research Manager of Microsoft's Deep Learning Technology Centre. The MS MARCO dataset is available for free to any researcher who wants to download it and use it for non-commercial applications, Microsoft said.
