  • Despite being built by calculus, linear algebra, and an army of statisticians around the world, neural networks have trouble understanding math.
  • Facebook’s breakthrough was treating variables and equations as parts of speech.
  • There’s already an extensive amount of research in machine translation, so the Facebook AI team simply used a popular translation model to map problems to solutions.
