Today, headlines are filled with claims about the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to do things only humans could do before. Recognizing objects in images, responding to voice queries, or interpreting complex text instances, to mention a few. But how do AI applications work? What are the AI solutions being used in International Development and Security? In this post, we summarize some of the basic techniques for computers to process and react to human language using Machine Learning, using real-world scenarios from several of our projects at AKTEK.
Development actors often deal with large amounts of text and speech data. This data carries information that is key to understanding conflict and social dynamics. Social media, news, and other text storage and sharing mechanisms have produced even more data in recent years. It is therefore more important than ever to be able to process text quickly and accurately. Artificial intelligence can help.Read More
