Gmail to use neural networks to auto generate email replies

Google has introduced a ‘Smart Reply’ feature in Gmail that auto predicts responses by analysing the context in emails. The system is built on a pair of recurrent neural networks, one used to encode incoming emails, and the other to predict possible responses. The feature will be made available this week on the Inbox app on both Google Play and the App Store in English. It will provide three responses to each email, of which the user can select one and forward it as it or by modifying it. The response examples given by Google are pretty neat, however we will see how well it works for real world usage when it launches this week. Examples included replies like “I don’t, sorry”, “I'll send it to you”, and “I will have to look for it”, for an email that asked for the documentation of a new software.

It does not use ‘rules’ to determine what to reply, rather uses a recurrent neural network to consume each word in an email and create a vector (list of numbers). This vector fed through the second neural network which synthesizes a reply one word at a time.
