Google releases Semantic Reactor for natural language understanding experimentation

#artificialintelligence

Google today released Semantic Reactor, a Google Sheets add-on for experimenting with natural language models. The tech giant describes it as a demonstration of how natural language understanding (NLU) can be used with pretrained, generic AI models, as well as a means to dispel intimidation around using machine learning. "Companies are using NLU to create digital personal assistants, customer service bots, and semantic search engines for reviews, forums and the news," wrote Google AI researchers Ben Pietrzak, Steve Pucci, and Aaron Cohen in a blog post. "However, the perception that using NLU and machine learning is costly and time-consuming prevents a lot of potential users from exploring its benefits." Semantic Reactor, then, which is currently a whitelisted experiment in the Google Cloud AI Workshop, allows users to sort lines of text in a sheet using a range of AI models.
