The social-media titan uses neural nets to translate about 2 billion user posts per day in more than 40 languages and says its translations are seen by 800 million users a day. Facebook also uses neural nets for photo search and photo organization and is working on a feature that would generate spoken captions for untagged photos that could be used by the visually impaired.
China’s leading search and web services site, Baidu uses neural nets for speech recognition, translation, photo search and a self-driving car project, among others. Speech recognition is key in China, a mobile-first society whose main language, Mandarin, is difficult to type into a device.
