    Part of the Facebook AI Research (FAIR) lab, the fastText library can cut language training from days to seconds.

    "Ultimately, we hope that fastText will help us all design better applications and further advance the research in language understanding," FAIR said in a statement.

    Budding AI developers can look to the library for help.

    The library of code is now available on Github for public use and scrutiny and will require a compiler with "good C++11 support," the report added.

    According to Facebook, fastText is much quicker than other learning methods.
