I think editing the body of the text would be more appropriate than just adding a postscript. A lot of readers aren’t going to reach the end, and much of the following is false or pretty misleading at best:

Google Translate invented its own language to help it translate more effectively.
.
What’s more, nobody told it to. It didn’t develop a language (or interlingua, as Google call it) because it was coded to. It developed a new language because the software determined over time that this was the most efficient way to solve the problem of translation.
.
Stop and think about that for a moment. Let it sink in. A neural computing system designed to translate content from one human language into another developed its own internal language to make the task more efficient. Without being told to do so. In a matter of weeks.

Still, I appreciate your enthusiasm and time spent bringing attention to the research.
