Maluuba is getting machines closer to reading like humans do

Tweet Share Today, Canadian artificial intelligence company Maluuba released state-of-the-art results for a type of machine learning focused on teaching computers to read like humans do. Companies like Google, Facebook, and IBM have actively been working on this area of research — known as machine learning comprehension — but experts agree it’s not nearly as advanced as image and voice recognition technology. Maluuba’s results show that, in the near future, machines could be able to understand text like we do. Maluuba has built a program called EpiReader. It’s designed to solve a specific kind of machine comprehension task: a word is removed from a block of text and EpiReader determines the missing word based on context. EpiReader does this using two neural networks, a type of AI inspired by…
