Artificial Intelligence will now predict text on SwiftKey for Android

When Microsoft acquired SwiftKey this year, we knew something big was going to come. But until now, there weren’t many major changes in how the smartphone keyboard worked. Today, however, everything is about to change. The company started rolling out a new version of its popular keyboard for Android today that combines the features of its Neural Alpha, released last October, and its regular app in order to serve better predictions. Traditionally, SwiftKey used what we call the n-gram algorithm to serve predictions. This is an algorithm which works on the principle of matching pairs of words with prior usage. Essentially, the system reads the last two words written, processes them and checks them against a large database. Using this, it then comes up with the three most probable words that could…
