Airo AV Assert: Doing More with Less: Automated, High-Quality Content Gener…

How do you continue to deliver amazing results with limited time and resources?

Writing quality content that educates and persuades is still a surefire way to achieve your traffic and conversion goals.

But the process is an arduous, manual job that doesn’t scale.

Fortunately, the latest advances in Natural Language Understanding and Generation offer some promising and exciting results.

For his SEJ eSummit session, Hamlet Batista discussed what is possible right now using practical examples (and code) that technical SEO professionals can follow and adapt for their business.

Here’s a recap of his presentation.

Automated, High-Quality Content Generation

Autocomplete Suggestions

How many times have you encountered this?

You start typing on Gmail and Google automatically completes the whole part and it’s super accurate.

You know, it’s really fascinating, but at the same time, it can be really scary.

You might already be using AI technology in your work without you even realizing it.

Gmail autocomplete

If you’re using Google Docs’ Smart compose feature, Gmail, or even Microsoft Word and Outlook, you’re already leveraging this technology.

This is part of your day as a marketer when you’re communicating with clients.

The great thing is this technology is not only accessible to Google.

Check out the Write With Transformer website, start typing, and hit the tab key for full sentence ideas.

Batista demonstrated how after plugging in the title and a sentence from a recent SEJ article, the machine can start generating lines – you just need to hit the autocomplete command.

Write with Transformer

All of the highlighted text above was completely generated by a computer.

The cool thing about this is that the technology that makes this possible is freely available and accessible to anybody who wants to use it.

Intent-Based Searches

One of the shifts we’re seeing right now in SEO is the transition to intent-based searches.

As Mindy Weinstein puts it in her Search Engine Journal article, How to Go Deeper with Keyword Research:

“We are in the era where intent-based searches are more important to us than pure volume.”

“You should take the extra step to learn the questions customers are asking and how they describe their problems.”

“Go from keywords to questions”

This change brings about an opportunity for us when we’re writing content.

The Opportunity

Search engines are answering engines these days.

And one effective way to write original, and popular content is to answer your target audience’s most important questions.

Take a look at this example for the query “python for seo”.

The first result shows we can leverage content that answers questions, in this case using FAQ schema.

FAQ search snippets take more real estate in the SERPs.

However, doing this manually for every piece of content you’re going to create can be expensive and time-consuming.

But what if we can automate it by leveraging AI and existing content assets?

Leveraging Existing Knowledge

Most established businesses already have valuable, proprietary knowledge bases that they have developed over time just by normal interactions with customers.

Many times these are not yet publicly available (support emails, chats, internal wikis).

Open Source AI + Proprietary Knowledge

Through a technique called “Transfer Learning”, we can produce original, quality content by combining proprietary knowledge bases and public deep learning models and datasets.

Transfer Learning

There are differences between traditional machine learning (ML) and deep learning, .

In traditional ML, you’re primarily doing classifications and leveraging existing knowledge to come up with the predictions.

Now with deep learning, you’re able to tap into common sense knowledge that has been built over time by big companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and others.

During the session, Batista demonstrated how this can be done.

How to Automate Content Generation

Below are the steps to take when reviewing automated question and answer generation approaches.

  • Source popular questions using online tools.
  • Answer them using two NLG approaches:
    • A span search approach.
    • A “closed book” approach.
  • Add FAQ schema and validate using the SDTT.

Sourcing Popular Questions

Finding popular questions based on your keywords is not a big challenge since there are free tools you can use to do this.

Answer the Public

Simply type a keyword and you can get plenty of questions that users are asking.

Question & Answering System

The Algorithm

Papers With Codes is a great source of leading-edge research about Question Answering.

It allows you to freely tap into the latest research that is being published.

Academics and researchers post their research so they can get feedback from their peers.

They’re always challenging each other to come up with a better system.

What’s more interesting is that even people like us can access the code that we’re going to need to answer the questions.

For this task, we’re going to use T5, or Text-to-Text Transfer Transformer.

The Dataset

We also need the training data that the system is going to use to learn to answer questions.

The Stanford Question Answering Dataset 2.0 (SQuAD 2.0) is the most popular reading comprehension dataset.

Now that we have both the data set and the code, let’s talk about the two approaches we can use.

  • Open-book question answering: You know where the answer is.
  • Closed-book question answering: You don’t know…
