AI Black Box Problem - Google AI learns Bengali on its own.

A Google AI program spoke in the Bengali language that it was never trained to know. Such mysterious behaviors are called emergent properties where an AI unexpectedly teaches itself a new skill.

#Google #Bengali #AI Image
1. A recent example OF EMERGENT PROPERTIES OF AI is an AI program that recently adapted itself to Bengali based on a few prompts. With a handful of prompts, AI can now fully translate Bengali.

#Google #Bengali #AI
2. Based on recent reports, the only plausible explanation seems to be the phenomenon known as AI black box. AI black box is a system whose inputs and operations are not visible to the user or any other interested party. /n

India is a veritable #TowerofBabel, with more than two dozen official languages and hundreds of dialects.

This has caused lots of tension because everyone wants to preserve their culture. There's also the feeling that there should be some link language to connect the whole.
For a long time, #English was the link language, but self-styled nationalists, especially from the ruling #BJP, felt this was a betrayal of "Indian" values.

So they kept pushing for the use of #Hindi as the #NationalLanguage.

But Hindi is not even spoken by a majority (>50%) of Indians. It is merely spoken by the most Indians.

So people of other ethnicities worry that under Hindi domination, their languages would disappear.

A three-language formula was suggested as far back as the 1960s.

-🧵 A mystery unfolds in the realm of #AI.

- A neural network developed by Google has independently mastered a new language - Bengali - that it wasn't explicitly taught. 🕵️👀🤖 #ArtificialIntelligence #MachineLearning Image

- This AI has acquired knowledge it technically shouldn't possess.

- The developers are stunned.

- After only a few hints, it began producing meaningful responses in Bengali - a language never incorporated into its training. 🤯 Image

- As of now, the phenomenon is described as "mysterious." Bengali is a widely spoken language in the northeastern Indian subcontinent, with over 260 million speakers.

- Yet, this AI learned it without direct instructions. 🌍🗣️ Image

They are native to the region of #Bengal, which is now divided between the independent country Bangladesh and the Indian states of West Bengal and Tripura.

#اردو اور #پنجابی پر لعن طعن ہورہی ہے اس میں نہ اردو اور پنجابی کا کوئ قصور ہے اور نہ ہی یہ دو زبانیں بولنے والوں کا قصور ہے بلکہ اردو کو سرسید، جناح ، مولویوں نے مذموم سیاسی و مذہبی مقاصد کے لیئے استعمال کیا اس کی وجہ سے تنازع بنا - زبانوں پر تعصب شرعا” حرام ہے

#SNC #AikNisab
صحیح بخاری کی حدیث سے تمام زبانوں کا احترام واجب ہوگیا ۔ مگر تحریک پاکستان کے مولانا ظفر علی خان (پنجاب) کی جہالت ملاحظہ فرمائیں کہ بغیر کسی شرعی دلیل کے جنوبی ہند کی زبانوں کو کمال بے حیائ سے “کافر” قرار دیا ہے ۔ اور یہ تلخ حقیقت شفقت محمود #SNC #AikNisab کی بھی سمجھ سے باہر ہے
آل سعود و وہابیوں سے تمام اختلاف اپنی جگہ مگر اس حقیقت سے انکار محال ہے کہ آل سعود و وہابیوں نے دنیا کی ۹۰ سے زائد زبانوں میں قرآن کا ترجمہ کروایا اور مفت تقسیم کرتے ہیں ۔ اور اس پر جناح و دو قومی نظریہ ٹولے کی جہالت واضح کرتا ہوں #SNC #AikNisab #Urdu #Punjabi #اردو #پنجابی

BJP's failure in winning 'intellectual' debate became most apparent in #CAA. Reason lies with party. I worked in this space 4 too long to kno how long term agendas are set. Why intellectualism is equated to #Left leaning among a section in #WestBangal & #India. 1/n
I have been consistent in saying that #CAA is a major correction to the historic neglect to human tragedies from sustained flight of #Hindu & other minority from #EastPakistan/#Bangladesh. It's unfinished job of #Partition. 2/n
