Gilbane Advisor 3-30-22 — neurosymbolic hybrid, content understanding

This week we feature articles from Gary Marcus and Daniel Tunkelang.

News comes from Access Innovations, Brightspot, Super .AI, and Indico Data.

We’ll be off next week, back the week after.


Opinion / Analysis

Deep learning is hitting a wall

There has always been a healthy skepticism that deep learning would take us to artificial general intelligence (AGI). But the genuinely amazing things that can be accomplished with the combination of deep learning, big data, and computing power led to a lazy optimism. Fortunately, that is changing, and it is increasingly clear that deep learning alone is insufficient to accomplish much of what is expected. Gary Marcus provides historical and recent context and makes a case for a neurosymbolic hybrid approach. Not too technical.

Content similarity

Content classification and annotation offer useful approaches for content understanding, recognizing whether a piece of content is about a particular topic or mentions a particular entity. But most content exists in a space that is too rich to reduce to classification and annotation. A document is more than a category and a bag of entities. For content understanding to be worthy of the name, it needs to embrace the richness of the content it represents… A more granular approach to content understanding focuses on the similarity between documents.

Daniel Tunkelang’s latest post in his series on content understanding techniques. A bit technical.

Indico Data updates its Unstructured Data Platform

Indico Data, the unstructured data company, unveiled Indico 5, a major release of its AI-powered Unstructured Data Platform. Indico 5 addresses the rapidly growing market demand for software solutions that drive efficiency and accelerate automation and intelligent document processing (IDP) initiatives using unstructured data.

The Indico Unstructured Data Platform, through a combination of a proprietary training data corpus, composite AI technology, and machine teaching application interface, drives an AI success rate, with more than 90% of projects in production.

Indico 5 was purpose-built to streamline some of the toughest unstructured data automation problems in IDP, such as document unbundling of PDFs, and ensuring the human training corrections of models made in the review cycle can be automated in future situations. The addition of linked relationship labeling and a new, more intuitive visual interface empowers organizations to easily automate, analyze, and apply unstructured data, illuminating opportunities, improving efficiency, and reducing risk. New features include: Automatic Document Unbundling, Linked Labels, Staggered Loop Training, Universal Document Support, and Workflow Canvas.

Access Innovations announces Video/Audio to Text to Tagging solution for video transcript search

Access Innovations, Inc. announced Video/Audio to Text to Tagging (VATT), a solution that translates audio files to time stamped text transcripts for indexing, classifying, and enriching by Data Harmony Hub. Originally developed to improve search precision on training videos for a large chemical manufacturer, the new tagging capabilities can be used on any video or audio content from lectures, demonstrations, conferences, and more. Once metadata tagging is completed by Data Harmony Hub, a “point in time” search allows for users to find the precise time within the video/audio where the speaker or narrator discusses a specific topic, without wasting time browsing and scrolling through the entire video to find the information they need.

Organizations are generating video content and placing it on YouTube and other video aggregation service platforms. If transcripts are not available and searchable, the viewer is disappointed when they attempt to search a library of videos. In most cases, search is only available on the video title, the speaker or performer name, and possibly the date. With the video/audio to text to tagging solution, viewers enjoy a more robust search experience, reduce noise within the search results, and pinpoint topics and concepts of interest.

Gilbane Advisor 3-23-22 — hypergrowth myth, operationalizing privacy

This week we feature articles from Jason Cohen and Rachel Dulberg.

Additional reading is from John Glaser & Elizabeth Gardner, Christine Moorman, Mike Melanson, and Thomas Claburn.

News comes from Progress, Liferay, Semantic Web Co & Wand, and Stepes.


Opinion / Analysis

The Elephant in the room: The myth of exponential hypergrowth

Fast-growing startups are frequently described as “exponential,” especially when the product is “viral.” Turns out, this is incorrect, even for Facebook and Slack. If you have an incorrect model, you don’t understand growth, which means you can’t control it, nor predict it. Here is a different model to understand how companies actually grow.

This is a must-read from Jason Cohen — not just for investors and startups, but business, marketing, and product managers. Well written with lots of great supporting charts. h/t: @dharmesh

Brightspot and ethinking partner to deliver CMS transformation

Brightspot, a content management system (CMS) provider, has announced a partnership with ethinking, a Berlin-based digital agency. Brightspot and ethinking will be partnering on their first joint customer project with RTL Luxembourg, a media organization in Luxembourg. In this joint project, both partners will work to migrate RTL Luxembourg’s current CMS to the next generation BrightspotCMS. Additional client updates include ethinking’s implementation of ‘XP Layer’ for the RTL Luxembourg user platform, headless low-code software developed to act as an interface between data sources and content channels.

With XP Layer, the CMS can be centrally controlled with websites, apps and other digital playout channels, and expanded and connected with all conceivable sources. The solution connects all necessary services and sources of a business-oriented platform, controlled by a widget-based construction kit, without requiring deep IT intervention.

Beyond the RTL Luxembourg project, both companies plan to continue future collaboration opportunities to bring Brightspot CMS and ethinking XP Layer to a wider net of content-focused organizations. This new project and subsequent initiatives come on the heels of Brightspot’s expansion to its ‘API-first capabilities’ partner program.

Stepes launches continuous terminology management solution

Stepes, a global provider of professional translation services on the cloud, announced the official launch of its AI-powered terminology solution for automated glossary creation and continuous multilingual terminology management. Companies understand the importance of terminology management in ensuring enterprise translation accuracy and linguistic consistency across the global content supply chain. However, conventional terminology management best practices are overly complex, involving too many manual processes that can be difficult to implement and costly to maintain.

Stepes automates terminology extraction, term translation, and glossary creation seamlessly into our professional online translation workflow. This fully automated, transparent terminology management process allows our clients to achieve the better translation performance without getting bogged down with time-consuming terminology tasks, while systematically growing enterprise multilingual termbases. By integrating the end-to-end terminology management process into our professional translation workflows on the cloud, Stepes raises multilingual enterprise localization performance to a higher level of globalization ROI.

Gilbane Advisor 3-16-22 — Words matter, hydrating tweets

This week we feature an article from Emily Tucker.

Additional reading is from Aruna Pisharody, David Rodenas, Cobus Greyling, and Hecate He.

News comes from Adobe, Wrike, Interprefy & Microsoft, and Syncro Soft.


Opinion / Analysis

Artifice and intelligence

The Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law’s Emily Tucker explains why they will stop using the terms “artificial intelligence”, “AI”, and “machine learning” in their work. She is certainly correct that words matter, and that the widespread lack of understanding and misuse of the terms is problematic. At the same time, not all institutional misuse is top-down and intentionally driven by greed and control – language laziness is pervasive and a bigger problem. Tucker’s proposed guidelines for replacement language are reasonable, though I don’t think “machine training” helps as replacement for “machine learning”.
