This new app uses neural networks to choose the perfect emoji (Video)

A new app from Toronto-based Whirlscape taps into neural networks to choose the best emoji while you’re typing. That may not sound like an impressive feat, but a long more goes into predicting which emoji you’ll use than you think. What is Dango? Dango is a floating assistant that runs on your phone and predicts emoji, stickers and GIFs based on what you and your friends are writing in any app. This lets you have the same rich conversations everywhere: Messenger, Kik, Whatsapp, Snapchat, whatever. (just making this possible in every app is an engineering challenge of its own, but that’s another story). To handle these cases, Dango uses a recurrent neural network (RNN). An RNN is a particular neural network architecture that is well suited to sequential input, and…
