In the latest conferences for developers of applications for the Android operating system, which is being developed by the technology and Internet services company Google, the American company revealed new artificial intelligence algorithms that many did not pay attention to, according to the “” website, which specializes in technology issues.

New algorithms developed by Google allow devices to understand users’ jokes, a process that requires a greater understanding of the different meanings of words and human actions. When a comedian says, for example, a sarcastic or controversial phrase, the listener realizes that from just the tone of speech or body language and other indicators that have accumulated meanings for the recipient through years of human interaction.

But the new algorithm, known as BALM, the initials of the phrase Language Paths Model, allows AI devices to grasp the irony of jokes without having previously been trained in it. After receiving only two jokes, the new algorithms are able to interpret and interact with any new joke, according to Google.

Understanding jokes and jokes is not the ultimate goal of Alphabet, the parent company of Google in developing these algorithms, but rather it aims to increase the ability of artificial intelligence devices to analyze the nuances of natural language and Google search queries so that answers to complex questions that users ask can be provided faster and more accurate across more languages ​​and people. This, in turn, can break down barriers and increase the ability to communicate with devices by interacting more seamlessly.

It’s hard to talk to non-specialists about what BALM algorithms do, let alone natural language processing, says Tong Nguyen, senior principal analyst at research and technology consultancy Gartner. one’s.
