Large Language Models

Taking on Large Language Models: BigScience Workshop Tackles Innovation and Research for the 2022 Language AI Market

As we have explored extensively in our recent posts on advancing language AI, the most dynamic developments in areas like NLG and NLP have tended to come via large language models (LLMs) that require massive and high-quality datasets to train, which naturally favors large companies and software groups who alone manage access to these datasets. […]

This year in language AI

This Year in Language AI: Strides Towards Perfecting Language AI Communications

This year in language AI, we have followed many newsworthy developments in natural language processing (NLP), natural language generation (NLG), and natural language understanding (NLU), highlighting the most impressive trends and technological advancements in the process of machine learning (ML) for language-based applications. Throughout this discussion, our focus has been on the effectiveness of these […]

NLG advances again this week!

Language AI in the News: Expanding Natural Language Generation (NLG) Capabilities

Two weeks ago, in our ongoing discussion on advancements in AI language functions and capabilities, we looked at Nvidia’s announcement on its development of the world’s most powerful natural language generation (NLG) model to date, surpassing GPT-3 as the latest high-powered text generator model. Following suit, Nvidia this week has made the decision to offer […]

Natural language processing becomes quantum

Keeping Up With AI: Quantum Natural Language Processing (QNLP)

As we recently discussed in our ongoing look at linguistic AI, natural language processing (NLP) is an established technology with astonishing real-world applications in areas such as machine translation that nevertheless seems often to be on the sidelines of newsworthy developments in more experimental areas like natural language generation (NLG). Now, however, NLP is getting a new infusion from the cutting-edge of computer science with reports from Cambridge Quantum on their development of […]

Linguistic AI struggles with analogies, a key aspect of human translation

Learning Without Analogies: Why Linguistic AI Struggles Where Human Linguists Excel

What do human linguists have that linguistic AI doesn’t? No longer a question just for the localization industry and machine translation, how well AI can replace people in communications is a shifting story in the world at large, and often a sensationalist one. A long view of developments suggests the true answer to what AI lacks is much more elusive than any one type of computational power, but the search for a specific mechanism is important not only to computer science but also psychology and biology today, as discovery continues […]
