[Hands-On] Swiftkey Neural Alpha – A Greenhouse Experiment That Works Pretty Well

Every once in a while, we get a sneak peek into the new technology that companies are creating that will ultimately make something better, faster, or [adjective here]. Swiftkey recently launched the latest project from Swiftkey Greenhouse: Swiftkey Neural Alpha. This is the first keyboard on a smartphone that uses artificial neural networks to fix mistakes and predict words. Swiftkey currently utilizes n-gram technology to do this by looking for patterns and common phrases. Neural Network Clusters While n-gram technology does use context to create predictions, this new neural network-based engine goes one step further toward truly understanding what you mean. Swiftkey’s blog post has a full rundown of how the technology works, and there are many videos explaining neural networks and machine learning. At the end of the day, there is only one thing you probably care…
