Richard Platt's curator insight, August 8, 2017 6:52 AM

The Internet of Sh*t Twitter feed rolls out information about these devices, tweeting horror stories about a woman  stranded in the country in a smart rental car that won’t start without a network. The Twitter account relays a constant stream of weird products—like toilets that glow in the dark—and anecdotes of discomfort, like lightbulbs that have to be reprogrammed before they will turn off and let you go to bed. More dangerously, there is a phone that keeps rebooting when someone is trying to call the fire department.  Grayson says one issue is that many of these companies are small startups trying to move quickly and they don’t want to slow down to install more robust security. “The ones that come from big vendors, like Google and Amazon, they are definitely going through security audits, but the vast majority of these devices are just crappy little computers put together by some boot-strap start-up—[and] they haven’t actually gotten any of it audited. So generally speaking the security posture of these devices is horrid.”

This turns out to be a problem.

Building Your Own Neural Machine Translation System in TensorFlow

Building Your Own Neural Machine Translation System in TensorFlow | Going Global by Going Local: L10n 3.0 | Scoop.it

Google has announced a new Neural Machine Translation (NMT) tutorial for TensorFlow that gives readers a full understanding of seq2seq models and shows how to build a competitive translation model from scratch. The tutorial is aimed at making the process as simple as possible, starting with some background knowledge on NMT and walking through code details to build a vanilla system. It then dives into the attention mechanism [3, 4], a key ingredient that allows NMT systems to handle long sentences. Finally, the tutorial provides details on how to replicate key features in the Google’s NMT (GNMT) system [5] to train on multiple GPUs.

Google AI creates ‘Interlingua’

Google AI creates ‘Interlingua’ | Going Global by Going Local: L10n 3.0 | Scoop.it
Using AI to translate across three languages has led to the observation that the AI has created – without direct help – an interlingua: an artificial language that – this case – is constructed to make translation easier, based on richer and broader semantics than are found in any of the natural languages.

Matt Burgess, Google’s AI just created its own universal ‘language

However, the most remarkable feat of the research paper isn’t that an AI can learn to translate languages without being shown examples of them first; it was the fact it used this skill to create its own 'language’. “Visual interpretation of the results shows that these models learn a form of interlingua representation for the multilingual model between all involved language pairs,” the researchers wrote in the paper.

An interlingua is a type of artificial language, which is used to fulfil a purpose. In this case, the interlingua was used within the AI to explain how unseen material could be translated.

“Using a 3-dimensional representation of internal network data, we were able to take a peek into the system as it translated a set of sentences between all possible pairs of the Japanese, Korean, and English languages,” the team’s blogpost continued. The data within the network allowed the team to interpret that the neural network was “encoding something” about the semantics of a sentence rather than comparing phrase-to-phrase translations.

“We interpret this as a sign of existence of an interlingua in the network,” the team said. As a result of the work, the Multilingual Google Neural Machine Translation is now being used across all of Google Translate and the firm said multilingual systems are involved in the translation of 10 of the 16 newest language pairs.

Soon, we may be speaking an interlingua that encompasses English, Swahili, Mandarin, and a hundred other languages. Perhaps we could wire it in such a way that people would innately find more kinship with others, and intuitively follow the golden rule. I propose we call it ‘Ish’, and start teaching the kindergartners.
