What it is:

Google has just made two exciting natural language tools completely open source: SyntaxNet and Parsey McParseface. The former is a syntactic parser, which, as KurzweilAI explains, "allows machines to parse, or break down, sentences into their component parts of speech and identify the underlying meaning." The latter is a program that uses SyntaxNet in the English language -- and the most accurate model of its kind on the planet.

Why it's important: 

By completely demonetizing, dematerializing and democratizing its own powerful natural language processing tools, Google only stands to gain future customers, fans and new startups to acquire.
