Azure OpenAI Service helps customers accelerate innovation with large AI models

#artificialintelligence

The service has a new responsible AI system that filters out harmful content and helps detect abuse. Additionally, Azure OpenAI Service now offers access to more models, including GPT-3, Codex and embeddings models. Codex can generate code and translate plain language to code, while embeddings make semantic search and other tasks easier. The service also offers new capabilities for customers to fine tune models for more tailored results. Azure OpenAI Service is enabling customers across industries from health care to financial services to manufacturing to quickly perform an array of tasks.


Council Post: An Outsider's View Into Healthcare--What AI Can And Can't Do

#artificialintelligence

Eric is President of Suki and seasoned technology executive with expertise co-founding and scaling companies including Hotwire and Expedia. I recently wrote about the promise of AI and its potential to play an important role in transforming how physicians interact with technology. Even today, AI is making meaningful inroads in specialties ranging from radiology to cardiology. The potential for AI to help physicians work faster and with greater accuracy has industry analysts predicting explosive 10x growth in this decade alone, with estimates reaching $96 billion in 2028. That said, most physicians are only beginning to become familiar with AI and understand its use cases.


25 AI Insurance Companies You Should Know

#artificialintelligence

The insurance industry has always dealt in data, but it hasn't always been able to put that data to optimal use. With the rise of artificial intelligence, which analyzes and learns from massive sets of digital information culled from public and private sources, insurers are embracing the technology's many facets -- from machine learning and natural language processing to robotic process automation and audio/video analysis -- to provide better products. Customers, too, are benefitting from practices like comparative shopping, quick claims processing, around-the-clock service and improved decision management. To get a better sense of how AI impacts the insurance industry, check out these 25 AI insurance applications. Liberty Mutual explores AI through its initiative Solaria Labs, which experiments in areas like computer vision and natural language processing. Auto Damage Estimator is one result of these efforts.

BLOOM Is the Most Important AI Model of the Decade

#artificialintelligence

You may be wondering if such a bold headline is true. GPT-3 came out in 2020 and established a new road the whole AI industry has been following in intention and attention since. Tech companies have repeatedly built better, larger models, one after another. But although they've put millions into the task, none of them has fundamentally changed the leading paradigm or the game's rules GPT-3 laid out two years ago. Gopher, Chinchilla, and PaLM (arguably the current podium of large language models) are significantly better than GPT-3 but they are, in essence, more of the same thing.


New AI Model Translates 200 Languages, Making Technology Accessible to More People

#artificialintelligence

Language is our lifeline to the world. But because high-quality translation tools don't exist for hundreds of languages, billions of people today can't access digital content or participate fully in conversations and communities online in their preferred or native languages. This is particularly an issue for hundreds of millions of people who speak the many languages of Africa and Asia. To help people connect better today and be part of the metaverse of tomorrow, our AI researchers created No Language Left Behind (NLLB), an effort to develop high-quality machine translation capabilities for most of the world's languages. Today, we're announcing an important breakthrough in NLLB: We've built a single AI model called NLLB-200, which translates 200 different languages with results far more accurate than what previous technology could accomplish.


Break through language barriers with Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Translate, and Amazon Polly

#artificialintelligence

Imagine a surgeon taking video calls with patients across the globe without the need of a human translator. What if a fledgling startup could easily expand their product across borders and into new geographical markets by offering fluid, accurate, multilingual customer support and sales, all without the need of a live human translator? What happens to your business when you're no longer bound by language? It's common today to have virtual meetings with international teams and customers that speak many different languages. Whether they're internal or external meetings, meaning often gets lost in complex discussions and you may encounter language barriers that prevent you from being as effective as you could be.


Meta's massive multilingual translation opus still stumbles on Greek, Armenian, Oromo

ZDNet

"Broadly accessible machine translation systems support around 130 languages; our goal is to bring this number up to 200," the authors write as their mission statement. Meta Properties, owner of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, on Wednesday unveiled its latest effort in machine translation, a 190-page opus describing how it has used deep learning forms of neural nets to double state-of-the-art translation for languages to 202 languages, many of them so-called "low resource" languages such as West Central Oromo, a language of the Oromia state of Ethiopia, Tamasheq, spoken in Algeria and several other parts of Northern Africa, and Waray, the language of the Waray people of the Philippines. The report by a team of researchers at Meta, along with scholars at UC Berkeley and Johns Hopkins, "No Language Left Behind: Scaling Human-Centered Machine Translation," is posted on Facebook's AI research Web site, along with a companion blog post, and both should be required reading for the rich detail on the matter. "Broadly accessible machine translation systems support around 130 languages; our goal is to bring this number up to 200," they write as their mission statement. As Stephanie relates, Meta is open-sourcing its data sets and neural network model code on GitHub, and also offering $200,000 I'm awards to outside uses of the technology.

Meta's new AI model can translate 200 different languages and enable 25 billion translations

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Meta's new AI model can translate 200 different languages - including many low-resource ones not supported by current translation systems - thanks to the work of what CEO Mark Zuckerberg calls'one of the world's fastest supercomputers.' The company dubs its effort No Language Left Behind (NLLB) and it hopes to enable more than 25 billion translations across Meta's apps each day. Although there are more than 7,100 known languages spoken worldwide today, many of them do not have enough data sets available in order to train AI. 'The AI modeling techniques we used are helping make high quality translations for languages spoken by billions of people around the world,' Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement These so-called low resources languages include Egyptian Arabic, Balinese, Sardinian, Nigerian Fulfulde, Pangasinan and Umbundu - which are spoke by a sizeable population but not as much on the internet itself. 'The AI modeling techniques we used are helping make high quality translations for languages spoken by billions of people around the world,' Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement posted to Facebook. The new model can translate 55 African languages with'high-quality results,' the company states.
