Google launches new API to help you parse natural language

Posted yesterday by Frederic Lardinois (@fredericl) Google today announced the public beta launch of its Cloud Natural Language API, a new service that gives developers access to Google-powered sentiment analysis, entity recognition, and syntax analysis. This new API joins Google’s other pre-trained machine-learning APIs like the Cloud Speech API, which is now also available in public beta, the Vision API and the Translate API. The new Cloud Natural Language API currently supports texts in English, Spanish and Japanese. Google notes that the idea here is to offer a service “that can meet the scale…

Google feeds its AI machines steamy romance novels to improve natural language processing

Google feeds its AI machines steamy romance novels to improve natural language processing Over the past couple of years, Google has been implementing a number of AI, or machine-learning technologies, in to its products. Whether it’s intuitive search within the Photos app, better automatic thumbnail creation in YouTube, ‘Smart Reply’ in Inbox, or just straight-out beating an 18-time Go world champion, its artificial intelligent brains are being developed and honed. With all of its incredible talent, apparently, there’s still work to be done when it comes to results from neural networks sounding and…
