Artificial Intelligence for Language Translation?

Researchers are using artificial intelligence in new, creative ways. Some use cases – predicting earthquakes, recognizing objects, and comparing medical scans, for example – offer tantalizing glimpses of a promising future. Language translation has long been considered a natural application for AI, but processes are ripe for improvement. Now, MIT researchers have announced an “unsupervised” language translation model whose early returns signal a future with “faster, more efficient computer-based translations of far more languages.”

Most widely-used translation programs (like Google’s) learn via models. These programs are trained to “look for patterns in millions of documents – such as legal and political documents, or news articles” that have been translated from one language to another by humans. Once they identify a new word in one language, they can find its match in a different language through pattern analysis.

This approach, however, is labor intensive and inefficient – partially due to its reliance on specific translations from one language to another to accurately translate words. New “monolingual” models have attempted to rectify these issues by translating “without direct translational information between the two,” but are slow and require significant computing power to work.

To combat these pain points, MIT researchers with the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) developed a new technique. By employing a statistical metric commonly used for pixel alignment called the Gromov-Wasserstein distance – which “essentially measures distances between points in one computational space and matches them to similarly distanced points in another space” – in conjunction with a vectorized system called “word embeddings”, where “words of similar meanings [are] clustered closer together,” researchers were able to create a system that can deduce likely direct translations via the relative distances of words within each vector. 

Using relational distances negates the time-consuming, laborious process of creating perfect word alignments. Gromov-Wasserstein is “tailor-made” for this purpose, said CSAIL Ph.D. student David Alvarez-Melis, who was the first author of the paper presenting the findings. “If there are points, or words, that are close together in one space, Gromov-Wasserstein is automatically going to try to find the corresponding cluster of points in the other space,” explained Alvarez-Melis.

Researchers are discovering innovative ways to utilize artificial intelligence. Applications such as earthquake prediction, object recognition, and medical scan comparisons show the potential for a promising future. While AI has long been employed for language translation, improvements are still necessary. MIT researchers have introduced an "unsupervised" language translation model that has demonstrated promising results, paving the way for faster and more efficient translations of a wider range of languages.

Commonly used translation programs, such as Google's, rely on models that learn by analyzing millions of translated documents, such as legal and political papers, and news articles. These models detect patterns to locate corresponding words in different languages when encountering a new word in one language.

While traditional approaches to translation rely on specific translations from one language to another, they can be labor-intensive and inefficient. Although new "monolingual" models attempt to solve this problem by translating "without direct translational information between the two," these models are often slow and require significant computing power.

To address these challenges, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) developed a new technique. They combined the Gromov-Wasserstein distance, a statistical metric commonly used for pixel alignment, with a vectorized system called "word embeddings." This system clusters words with similar meanings closer together, allowing researchers to deduce likely direct translations based on the relative distances of words within each vector.

Using relational distances eliminates the need for the time-consuming and laborious process of creating perfect word alignments. According to CSAIL Ph.D. student David Alvarez-Melis, the Gromov-Wasserstein distance is "tailor-made" for this purpose. He explains that if there are points or words that are close together in one space, the Gromov-Wasserstein distance will automatically try to find the corresponding cluster of points in the other space. For example, despite differences between languages, the model could identify a cluster of 12 vectors for the months of the year in one embedding and a similar cluster in the other embedding, allowing for simultaneous alignment of an entire vector space.

The result is a system with accuracy comparable to existing monolingual models but with greater speed and significantly less operating power. This is a significant step towards the goal of achieving truly unsupervised word alignment and demonstrates the power of AI being fine-tuned and deployed in new, creative, and useful ways.

If You’re Wondering When A.I. Will Start Making Market Predictions…

Did you know that Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is already being used to make market predictions? Hedge funds and large institutional investors have been using A.I. to analyze vast amounts of data for investment opportunities and to identify patterns and trends in charts. The A.I. can scan thousands of securities and cryptocurrencies and generate trade ideas based on what it finds. However, retail investors have been at a disadvantage until now.

Tickeron has launched a new investment platform that provides retail investors with access to sophisticated A.I. for a variety of functions,

  •  including finding stock patterns and trends,
  •  testing portfolio diversification, 
  • back-testing trading results based on different stock patterns,
  •  and making predictions about future price movements with an "A.I. Rank" and level of confidence in the trade.

With Tickeron's platform, retail investors can level the playing field and take advantage of A.I. technology to make better investment decisions.

And much more. No longer is AI just confined to the biggest hedge funds in the world. It can now be accessed by everyday investors. Learn how on Tickeron.com.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and fintech have an inherent compatibility that has become clearer as each sector has matured, with recent growth and successes on their own accord bringing new ideas about how they can work together.AI can analyze information at far greater quantities (and far more quickly) than any human, making it a natural fit to help fintech firms streamline and automate processes that benefit customers and businesses alike. Fintech has brought a revolution of convenience to the finance world.
You’ve set up your bitcoin wallet and have acquired some bitcoins, and now you’re ready to use them – what’s next?But be VERY careful to double- or triple-check that the address is correct – crypto transactions are irreversible, and a typo almost certainly means permanently losing the bitcoins you were trying to send. One way to avoid potential slip-ups is to scan a QR code (when available) for the destination address.
Mainstream acceptance has come in fits and starts, with regulatory approval proving hard to come by for a variety of reasons – not least of which the ever-present risk of theft via hacking or other means, which pose an especially large obstacle to attracting investment from mainstream institutions. Because crypto holdings are only accessible via a specific private key, they are susceptible to loss – literally, if the key is written on a piece of paper or a physical hard drive, methods of offline ‘cold storage’ – or through hacks if held in an online wallet.Reuters reports that over $800 million in crypto assets were stolen in the first half of 2018, creating justifiable concern for both owners and mainstream financial institutions alike. Some type of insurance coverage would potentially mitigate the risks inherent to owning crypto assets – if insurers are willing to play ball.
Don't fall prey to common financial traps that can derail your financial planning efforts. In this article, we highlight four traps to keep in mind, including the importance of refinancing rather than consolidating student loans and credit card debt, prioritizing debt repayment over investments, limiting news consumption, and understanding the true costs of buying a home. Learn how AI tools from Tickeron can help investors make informed decisions and achieve their investment objectives.
Paper wallets are extremely useful tools – beyond being one of the most popular and secure cold storage methods, they make it simple to transfer coins between owners.You can access the funds on your paper wallet by “sweeping” (or importing) them to either a live wallet (like Trezor or Exodus) or an exchange service (like Coinbase). Most services allow you to import them directly from your wallet’s private key, but there are two key exceptions.
