SwiftKey KeyBoard App uses a neural network for predictions

Posted in Android Application

SwiftKey, using neural networks to enable our keyboards to understand language at a deeper level.  SwiftKey Keyboard using the power of neural network technology – the first instance of neural networks being used locally on a smartphone. This gives you more accurate and useful next-word predictions, saving you time and (hopefully) adding a little fun to your typing.

SwiftKey is now able to meaningfully capture the relationship and similarity between words. For example, having previously seen the phrase “Let’s meet at the airport”, the technology is able to infer that “office” or “hotel” are similar words which could also be appropriate predictions in place of “airport”.


Further, it understands that “Let’s meet at the airport” has a similar sentence structure to “Let’s chat at the office”. This intelligence allows SwiftKey to offer you the most appropriate prediction or autocorrection based on the sentence being typed.

Initially, it will be rolling out neural networks in US English and UK English language models, with more languages to come, so stay tuned! Users of these languages who have the latest version of SwiftKey will be upgraded automatically.
