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 […]

Language AI getting better day by day

Language AI in the News: Closing the Gap to Human Communications

Modern language AI is advancing at an unprecedented pace as innovation and research drives developers to create state-of-the-art language models that continue to inch closer to natural human speech patterns and cognitive reasoning. In our ongoing discussion on language AI and natural language processing (NLP), we have discussed ways in which these technologies have expanded […]

Machine translation on the horizon

MT, NMT, and MTPE in the Age of Natural Language Processing

When trying to understand the distinction between technology-driven translation solutions like machine translation (MT) and neural machine translation (NMT), it can be tempting to seek simpler analogies from beyond the realm of technology. Increasingly, though, parsing the respective advantages of these solutions requires an awareness of distinctions in machine learning and artificial intelligence that will […]

Cross-border communications: ever more sophisticated.

Cross-border Communications: Entering 2021

Across the globe people found new measures to facilitate cross-border communications in 2020. In numerous countries, physical borders were enforced, discouraging the movement of people and cross-cultural initiatives. In times when people around the world were confined, many sought inventive ways to reach across borders and harvest multicultural connections. Millions of people expressed new interests […]

Language AI takes on new challenges

Language AI Learns the Art of Smooth Talking

Last week, we looked at how research on a multilingual knowledge base at Google could be forging the beginnings of truly multilingual language AI, marking one of the more interesting recent technological developments for the localization industry. Now, days later, new reports on a study at Facebook AI Research appears to signal even more compelling developments in NLP (natural language processing) than systems that can cross-reference world idioms. Challenging criticisms that NLP agents tend to be flat approximations of human speakers, it […]

Is AI Multilingual? How New Advances Could Be Pushing Past Language-specific Information Retrieval

Is AI Multilingual? How New Advances Could Be Pushing Past Language-specific Information Retrieval

What if multilingual AI truly had the ability to make assorted connections spanning a broad knowledge of the world sourced from hundreds of languages? When you enter a piece of text in Google Translate using the ‘Detect language’ feature, an algorithm able to recognize the belonging of specific words and patterns to various world languages selects one of many linguistic frameworks at its disposal, then begins the more linear natural language processing (NLP) task of translating your […]
