Recently, Alibaba Cloud officially released three artificial intelligence products: image search, intelligent voice self-learning platform and machine translation, further promoting the landing of industrial AI.
It is reported that the three products released by Alibaba Cloud and Alibaba’s Machine Intelligence Technology Laboratory have been independently developed and have withstood the challenges of the complex business scenarios within Alibaba Group, aiming to provide industry-leading artificial intelligence for users in different industries. solution.
First, image search commercialization
As one of the key technologies in artificial intelligence technology, Alibaba Cloud’s image search is based on deep learning and large-scale machine learning technology. Through image recognition and search functions, it realizes intelligent image search products with map search. The image search service helps users to search for the same or similar pictures based on image recognition technology and combining different industry applications and business scenarios.
Unlike general search, which relies mainly on bytes, image search is mainly defined as “search by image”, which can support the following product image search (by inputting product images, accurately targeting the same or similar models in the product library) and general image search ( Find similar or identical images in a massive library by entering images with the same element or body content.
It is reported that the program includes the latest cutting-edge research results in deep learning, image recognition, and vector search engines supporting tens of billions of data.
Second, intelligent voice self-learning platform
The intelligent voice self-learning platform is a one-button voice intelligent self-optimization solution, which breaks through the limitation of voice recognition optimization relying on the voice provider‘s expert service, so that those who do not understand the technology can quickly and significantly improve the recognition accuracy of their own business. Business needs.
At present, the technology has been widely used in the fields of intelligent government affairs, intelligent navigation, intelligent collection, intelligent audio, smart home, robot and automatic driving. Alibaba’s machine intelligence technology laboratory voice intelligence senior expert Zhou Wei said, “The purpose of the self-learning platform is to provide low-threshold and even zero-threshold intelligent voice optimization platform to people without professional knowledge background, so that our customers get rid of AI scientists. rely.”
Third, machine translation: the number of translated words per day exceeds 200 billion
Alibaba Cloud Machine Translation provides a wide range of translation and language services, with high performance and high concurrent services, multi-modal services and other capabilities to help international companies enhance business value. The machine translation platform has precipitated a high-quality cross-border corpus database, making full use of advanced machine translation algorithm technology and massive data resources, deepening the quality of machine translation and product experience, and actively expanding the product form of machine translation business. Machine translation technology productization, such as voice translation, venue simultaneous interpretation, real-time communication and other new products and services.
According to the information, machine translation can translate billions of products per day in Alibaba. The number of online translation requests reaches hundreds of millions of times per day. At double 11, the number of translation requests per second is about tens of thousands. The number of words translated every day exceeds 200 billion, and according to the data disclosed by Google in 2016, the number of words translated every day is about 140 billion.
At present, the technology has provided machine translation and localization support for more than a dozen lines of business of Alibaba Group, covering Alibaba.com, AliExpress, Lazada, Nail, Aliyun, Youku, Alipay, Rookie, Tmall Elf, Gaode, Flying pigs and many other products.
