    Neural was a Greenhouse project that mostly centered around adjusting prediction AI. I do not believe this app is supported any more outside of Greenhouse as the adjustments were made to SwiftKey algorithms as a whole. I could be wrong about this, as I am not a developer, but this was my understanding. Prad may be able to clear it up further, but as far as I know, no new features will be coming to Neural.

    Sorry, I know that. Let me rephrase the question.

    Do the neural features that are built into SwiftKey work for predictions AND autocorrect? Or just predictions?

    Predictions are autocorrect if you have the option to automatically put in autocorrect in space enabled.

    From my experience it's for prediction only. But there's always a change that I'm wrong.

    Let's start with "what is Neural". Please take a look at this video. You can see that the Neural is like a human thinking, about the context, the background of the conversation that you're having.

    However the word you type, I mean each word, is separately. It depends on the correct spelling. And that would rely on autocorrect, the basic spelling rules, it's fixed, not like the context or the content of the conversation could be changed.

    Further example : the sentence : "I would like a cup of coffee". Start with typing "I", then Neural would predict "am, will, can" something like that to fit the subject "I", but if you want to type "would", then it's autocorrect to do the job, to make sure you don't have "wiild" or "woukd" wrong spell words. And for job like this we don't need AI to get it done.

    Here's what I'm getting at...

    "I would like a cup of coffee."

    Neural looks at context. Shouldn't that be true for both predictions and corrections? I know that some other keyboards, such as aitype, use context to autocorrect your typos/swipes. So neural should be capable of autocorrecting using context, as well, but it should be much smarter since it uses the neural network.

    That's how it SHOULD work, anyways. I don't know why it's only being used for predictions.

    "I would like a cup of code." makes no sense. Code and Coffee are very similar swipe patterns. Neural should correct this to coffee, using context, yet it isn't activated for autocorrect, which makes no sense.

    One clarification Kenneth "Greenhouse" is a program that we've used to release experiment apps that are not the core SwiftKey Keyboard. 

    Thanks for sharing this extra information about your experience!

    The example you gave based on my example is not clear. Or maybe I didn't explain clearly.
    The Neural works for predictions, and that's why you will never see after "a cup of" SwiftKey suggests you "code, rice, tree" or whatever. It suggests "wine, coffee, water". That's the context. Especially when you try to flow, SwiftKey gets things done.
    But, why typing prediction and autocorrect is a very tricky thing, because not everyone follows the rules. People type whatever they like with however they like. When I say spell correctly, sometimes people wouldn't do that, for example "tho" = "though". SwiftKey opens the ability to "personalize".
    It's very hard to find the balance between "well-spelled, follow the context and grammar" and "the variety of typing styles". If SwiftKey cuts off the possibility for typing "a cup of code", but what if it happens to be a phrase that an user wants to type in this way? Who wants to type in his own style? (I know this sounds hilarious, but you'll never know what people want to type, you can never predict that) He would complain otherwise : SwiftKey is offensively forbidden me typing my own words, and I don't need such a grammar teacher! But for you, you might think following the grammar and well spelling is more important.
    Does it sound more reasonable to you ? That's how I see why SwiftKey does it, and the opinion is very personal.

     

    Edit, for curiosity I just tried to Flow "coffee" and "code" like you mentioned above, under the condition of  : fresh installed SwiftKey & without login to SwiftKey account (to make sure SwiftKey has zero data from my typing history). And guess what? SwiftKey suggest me "coffee" after the phrase of "a cup of", and if I want to type "code", is still possible. I think the balance I mentioned above is well done by SwiftKey. Still - personal opinion.
