Researchers develop AI system that could make machines better understand language

Posted on: 08:21 AM IST Mar 09, 2016 London: Researchers have designed an online crossword-solving application based on artificial intelligence that could make machines better at understanding language. The system, which is freely available online, uses artificial neural networks to answer standard crossword clues better than existing commercial products specifically designed for the task. The system, which is freely available online, uses artificial neural networks to answer standard crossword clues better than existing commercial products specifically designed for the task. “Despite recent progress in AI, problems involving language understanding are particularly difficult, and our work suggests many possible applications of deep neural networks to language technology,” said one of the study authors Felix Hill from the University of Cambridge. “One of the biggest challenges in training computers to understand language…
