Talk to books, play word association with Google AI

TIL Desk/Business/San Francisco/ Google has been working extensively on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and now it has given users a (fun) glimpse of how far natural language processing — that deals with machine reading comprehension — in the technology has come.

Google Research division of the search-giant has rolled out Semantic Experiences, which are websites with interesting activities that demonstrate AIs’ ability to understand how we speak. It has two experiences to enjoy and the third one is for developers to help them create their own experience.

The first two experiences are called “Talk to Books” in which users can explore a new way to interact with books, and “Semantris” where people can play word association games powered by semantic search.

In “Talk to Books” experience, users can simply type in a statement or a question and the AI will find whole sentences in books related to what they have typed. Google Research Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil and Product Manager Rachel Bernstein said the system does not depend on keyword matching.
