15 Top AI/ML/AR/VR Based App Ideas for Startups and SMEs in 2020–21


Planning to invest in a mobile app? Here are the top 15 AI/ML/VR/AR app development ideas that ensure your success in 2020–21! With the availability of around 5 million apps existing in the app stores, the trends of developing ordinary mobile apps are just fading away. The increasing usage of mobile applications with each passing year also pushes the demand for innovative technologies to meet future mobile app users' demands. And Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI & ML) have become the most influencing technologies in the field of mobile app development and creating a plethora of opportunities for startups in 2021.

Lost in Translation: How Artificial Intelligence is Breaking the Language Barrier - DefinedCrowd


Human interaction with machines has experienced a great leap forward in recent years, largely driven by artificial intelligence (AI). From smart homes to self-driving cars, AI has become a seamless part of our daily lives. Voice interactions play a key role in many of these technological advances, most notably in language translation. Here, AI enables instant translation across a number of mediums: text, voice, images and even street signs. The technology works by recognizing individual words, then leveraging similarities in how various languages express the relationships between those words.

Machine learning is a sub-field of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning algorithms are usually categorized as supervised or unsupervised. Artificial Intelligence is a branch of computer science that endeavors to replicate or simulate human intelligence in a machine, so machines can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. Some programmable functions of AI systems include planning, learning, reasoning, problem-solving, and decision making.

10 RNN Open Source Projects You Must Try Your Hands On


Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) are neural networks that recall each and every information through time. In the past few years, this neural network has gained much traction and has been utilised in several applications. The applications include speech recognition, machine translation, video tagging, text summarization, prediction and more. Here, we have listed the top 10 open-source projects on Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), in no particular order, that one must try their hands on. About: This project is about Human Activity Recognition (HAR) using TensorFlow on smartphone sensors dataset and an LSTM RNN.

Council Post: Five Real Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Upleveling Customer Service


Remember Facebook's automated personal assistant, M, that was released in a bid to compete with Alexa and Siri? After a series of embarrassing mishaps due to poorly trained algorithms, Facebook abruptly pulled the plug. They weren't alone; chatbots are infamous for putting their metaphorical feet in their mouths. While these debacles are tough to watch, the underlying problem is not artificial intelligence (AI) itself. AI succeeds when underpinned with sound strategy and well-trained models.

Translating lost languages using machine learning


Recent research suggests that most languages that have ever existed are no longer spoken. Dozens of these dead languages are also considered to be lost, or "undeciphered" -- that is, we don't know enough about their grammar, vocabulary, or syntax to be able to actually understand their texts. Lost languages are more than a mere academic curiosity; without them, we miss an entire body of knowledge about the people who spoke them. Unfortunately, most of them have such minimal records that scientists can't decipher them by using machine-translation algorithms like Google Translate. Some don't have a well-researched "relative" language to be compared to, and often lack traditional dividers like white space and punctuation.

The first AI model that translates 100 languages without relying on English data


Facebook AI is introducing, M2M-100 the first multilingual machine translation (MMT) model that translates between any pair of 100 languages without relying on English data. When translating, say, Chinese to French, previous best multilingual models train on Chinese to English and English to French, because English training data is the most widely available. Our model directly trains on Chinese to French data to better preserve meaning. It outperforms English-centric systems by 10 points on the widely used BLEU metric for evaluating machine translations. M2M-100 is trained on a total of 2,200 language directions -- or 10x more than previous best, English-centric multilingual models.

Facebook's new AI can translate languages directly into one another


Whether you're logging on from the US, Brazil, Borneo, or France, Facebook can translate virtually any written content published on its platform into the local language using automated machine translation. In fact, Facebook provides around 20 billion translations everyday for its News Feed alone. However these systems typically use English as an intermediary step -- that is, translating from Chinese to French actually goes Chinese to English to French. This is done because data sets of translations to and from English are massive and widely available but putting English in the middle reduces the overall translation accuracy while making the entire process more complex and cumbersome than it needs to be. That's why Facebook AI has developed a new MT model that can bidirectionally translate directly between two languages (Chinese to French and French to Chinese) without ever using English as a crutch -- and which outperforms the English-centric model by 10 points on BLEU metrics.

Facebook AI can translate directly between any of 100 languages

New Scientist

Facebook has developed an artificial intelligence capable of accurately translating between any pair of 100 languages without relying on first translating to English, as many existing systems do. The AI outperforms such systems by 10 points on a 100-point scale used by academics to automatically evaluate the quality of machine translations. Translations produced by the model were also assessed by humans, who scored it as around 90 per cent accurate. Facebook's system was trained on a data set of 7.5 billion sentence pairs gathered from the web across 100 languages, though not all the languages had an equal number of sentence pairs. "What I really was interested in was cutting out English as a middle man. Globally there are plenty of regions where they speak two languages that aren't English," says Angela Fan of Facebook AI, who led the work.

Facebook AI open sources multilingual machine translation model


The AI and ML deployments are well underway, but for CXOs the biggest issue will be managing these initiatives, and figuring out where the data science team fits in and what algorithms to buy versus build. Facebook AI is open sourcing M2M-100, a multilingual machine translation model (MMT) that can translate any pair of 100 languages without relying on English. The MMT is thought to be more accurate because it doesn't have to use English as a go-between. Typically, models have been English-centric. So translating Chinese to French or Chinese to Spanish would require a translation into English before a final destination.
