Google 发布新一代翻译系统

Google 昨天发布新一代的翻译系统,相较于前一代,Google 在这一代产品中采用深度学习模型,使得整个翻译系统实现了自我学习,错误率显著下降,根据 Google 的官方说法,准确率提高 87%。在英译中的过程中,准确率超过 58%,英文翻译西班牙语的准确率也超过 87%。Google 未来会逐步在翻译产品替代前一代系统。

微软的未来在于硬件?

Wired 这篇关于微软内部研发 FPGA 的报道透露了前任 CEO 鲍尔默如何坚持己见,差点将这个项目掐死,现在来看,这个项目对于微软的 Azure 云、人工智能至关重要,而这些,就是未来。

开源机器学习公司的困境

机器学习公司 H2O.ai 日前裁员 10%,9 名员工离开。该公司的业务是在开源机器学习基础上付费的支持和服务,而目前这个领域的公司可谓举步维艰:

Generally speaking, at the moment open-source machine learning software is not exactly the easiest thing to build a big business around. Turi, which has promoted open-source GraphLab, recently was acquired by Apple. PredictionIO was acquired by Salesforce. In 2015 Microsoft acquired Revolution Analytics.

Then again, premium general-purpose machine learning software is not always a sure way to make money, either. SAP recently acquired Hadoop-as-a-service startup Altiscale. Earlier this year Skytree replaced its chief executive officer — cofounder Alexander Gray took on the position — and also made its software available for free.
