The new system “reduces translation errors by more than 55-85 percent on several major language pairs” and can perform zero-shot translation: translation between language pairs for which no training data exists.
Working within constraintsThe problem of natural language understanding in #AI is being worked on by some very smart people.
For anybody wanting to build a conversational #AI today, such restrictions are still absolutely necessary.
But there are ways of enhancing such conversational #AI experiences even without solving natural language understanding (which may take decades, or longer).

Opinion… * Man-Made

Understanding what’s possible with today’s #AI is key to use this technology to enhance tomorrows apps. #Trend
