Facebook Uses AI To Closely Identfy Intent, Improve Search

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg earlier this week announced that its engineers are building an artificial intelligence (AI) engine to understand the meaning and sentiment behind all of the text entries that its social media members post. Deep learning — DeepText — will help the technology that processes information and language from posts on the site much faster. Identifying intent from the words without the individual actually writing out what he or she means by using specific words offers the possibility to create a powerful search engine. It’s done by using several “deep neural network architectures like convolutional and recurrent neural nets, and can perform word-level and character-level based learning, according to a post. While deep learning makes a general classification to determine the topic of the post — or recognizes…
