The neural network behind the Google Translate service is under suspect to create a common representation of meaning, independend from language. Even for the Google engineers it seems to be hard to understand what is exactaly going on, but it is working with a measurable higher quality than ever before. The network was able to translate from Spanish to Portuguese by itself, without guidance, after it was trained to translate from Portuguese to English and English to Spanish.

Deep neural networks and machine-learning are key players of artificial intelligence. They are simulating basic information processing of the brain and are more and more used in many products.

Microsoft and Liebherr are collaborating on an upcoming line of smart fridges

To help refrigerator manufacturer Liebherr improve upon its SmartDeviceBox, tech giant Microsoft has announced plans to partner with the appliance company on upcoming releases. A communication module that connects Liebherr’s fridges to the internet, the SmartDeviceBox essentially turns any of its lineup of refrigerators into a connected appliance. Like Samsung’s Family Hub refrigerator — sans the giant touchscreen — these fridges grant owners a wide range of capabilities including knowing what’s inside and when it spoils, shopping list integration, and innovative meal planning.
