Opinion / Analysis

From the modern data stack to knowledge graphs

Tiernan Ray summarizes Microsoft and Snowflake veteran Bob Muglia’s keynote at last weeks Knowledge Graph Conference. Muglia’s presentation is about “relational knowledge graphs” that can model both data and and business rules. He is currently on the board of Relational AI, a startup building such a product.

Why graph-modeling frameworks are the future of unsupervised learning

If you have too many features for the number of samples or want to remove co-linear features to improve your model, there are many techniques that can be applied in a supervised learning setting — Decision Trees, Random Forest, etc.

Until now, there are very few approaches that can identify feature importance in an unsupervised learning problem.

Cristiana de Azevedo von Stosch and Abhishek Singh propose a method for “feature selection based on feature importance determination [that] will reduce the processing time of any modeling approach.”. (7 min)

Google Translate learns 24 new languages

From the Google Products Blog…

… today we’ve added 24 languages to Translate, now supporting a total of 133 used around the globe.

Over 300 million people speak these newly added languages — like Mizo, used by around 800,000 people in the far northeast of India, and Lingala, used by over 45 million people across Central Africa. As part of this update, Indigenous languages of the Americas (Quechua, Guarani and Aymara) and an English dialect (Sierra Leonean Krio) have also been added to Translate for the first time.

This is also a technical milestone for Google Translate. These are the first languages we’ve added using Zero-Shot Machine Translation, where a machine learning model only sees monolingual text — meaning, it learns to translate into another language without ever seeing an example. While this technology is impressive, it isn’t perfect. And we’ll keep improving these models to deliver the same experience you’re used to with a Spanish or German translation, for example. If you want to dig into the technical details, check out our Google AI blog post and research paper.
