Chinese company Baidu has been investing tons of money in artificial intelligence, they gone a step an ahead by hiring away the creator of Google Brain project,who was famous for building autonomous car or creating a recent artificial intelligence which can mimic your voice after hearing for an while. At this week MIT Technology Review, Baidu gave a demo of the pocket universal translator that is able to translate sentences from English to Mandarin.
Shown on the stage, the pocket translator used to facilitate a conservation between English speaking editor Will Night and Hua Wu [Chief Scientist of Baidu].
The device can translate questions like “Where can I buy this device?” and “When will machines replace humans?” into mandarin, and vice-verse Mandarin to English. This pocket translator technology is the same technology which is used by the Google’s machine translation and voice-recognition technology.
This product has been available in the market since December, now it is used by travel agencies and airports in china. Its goal to use English, Chinese and Japanesetranslations to help navigate around the cities. However, the market will expanded in the future.
While various cell phones can do noteworthy machine interpretation at introduce, that doesn’t reduce how great Baidu’s accomplishment is. Not exclusively does it underline how effective the organisation has been at going up against the Silicon Valley tech monsters, yet it’s obviously direct usability totally makes this a contraption we would be occupied with grabbing. Particularly if, eventually, Baidu can consolidate this with its previously mentioned voice sound- alike innovation.
Alongside Google’s in-ear interpretation ear buds, it appears that we’re living in an unbelievably energising time for machine interpretation.
