Translating Predicting Language of Chemical Reactions

Intriguing, trying to convert this idea into my firmer experience in an internship in chemical engineering research.

A Translation Algorithm Can Predict the “Language” of a Chemical Reaction  in Technology Review.

By thinking of organic chemistry as words and sentences instead of atoms and molecules, researchers have found a way for artificial intelligence to predict chemical reactions.

In a paper published on arXiv by researchers at IBM and being presented at this week’s Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) conference, the researchers demonstrate that by treating reaction predictions as a translation problem, they could come up with the correct reaction more often than was possible with previous models.

“Intuitively, there is an analogy between a chemist’s understanding of a compound and a language speaker’s understanding of a word,” the researchers write.  .... "
