Facebook A.I. is almost as smart as you.
Facebook unveiled a deep text understanding engine.
The system can process several thousands of posts per second, in more than 20 languages.
Facebook says Says that DeepText reaches near human accuracy.
Sure, that's very interesting, but why does this matter at all to you?
Imagine that you were using Facebook Messenger, and you needed a ride.
You can write I need a Ride, and Messenger can instantly give you a option to request a ride.
If you write I don't need a ride, Detext won't bother to give you an option.
If you write, I like to ride donkeys, and this is Facebook's example by the way The artificial intelligence knows that you are not asking for the Uber of donkeys.
[NOISE] Deep text also understands that certain words are related like cab and taxi.
Facebook's end goal appears to be getting you, the Facebook user, to use all of its services.
If you're selling an items, you might just post a text.
Two chairs, ten dollars each, pick up Palo Alto.
Facebook Deep Text will read the sentence, distill it, and figure out it's a for sale post.
This could really change the way people use Facebook.
If Deep Text can realize you are looking for movie tickets or a hotel room, you might not need to head to another site at all.
You can live your entire life in Facebook all the time.
That could be great.
