SD Times GitHub project of the week: FastText

For humans, writing posts on social media just comes naturally. Humans understand each word that’s said or typed, but for machines, it’s not that easy. Understanding the meaning of words is one of the biggest challenges that artificial intelligence researchers face today, and this week’s GitHub project named fastText aims to solve that challenge. Automatic text processing is a part of everyday interactions with computers, and it generates plenty of online data. With all of this data, specific tools are needed to understand the content of large datasets. To address this challenge, the Facebook AI Research (FAIR) lab is open-sourcing its fastText library to help build scalable solutions for text representation and classification. According to FAIR, “FastText combines some of the most successful concepts introduced by the natural language processing…
