Facebook is arguably the world’s foremost artificial intelligence laboratory. Given the size of its platform, and the pressure to keep users entertained and coming back, it needs to be. On Thursday, Facebook announced that it would release another open-source A.I. tool, dubbed fastText, which is incredibly good at understanding huge blocks of text. That may not sound compelling, but the method’s ripples will do wonders for your Facebook browsing experience. And, as the research is open source, those ripples will propagate throughout and thereby enhance your entire experience online. “We believe language understanding by computers is one of the biggest scientific challenges in front of us — and we hope our work on fastText is making a small step forward in this direction,” Tomas Mikolov, one of the Facebook researchers…
