Since Facebook changed its name to Meta, the term Metaverse has gained a ton of popularity. Becoming an ever-growing sector, it can contribute the several technological changes reshaping the internet once and for all.
Not to mention, Meta is also reported to be working on special metaverse gloves that would allow users to interact with virtual objects seamlessly. In fact, to an extent of actually touching and feeling them.
As of now, there’s another confirmation coming directly from the company. Meta is building an AI-based translation system, that would allow users to interact with one another with ease in the metaverse. So, in this article, we are going to discuss everything there is to know about the recent development.
Meta’s Take on a Universal Language Translation System
In the recent live stream by Mark Zuckerberg CEO of Meta, talked in a detailed overview on the various AI-based technologies Meta is currently working on. ‘Inside the Lab’ Mark Zuckerberg discussed Meta’s aim in building a universal language translation system.
This, in turn, would allow users to seamlessly interact with one another without worrying about the language barrier. This universal model is designed to deliver outputs at scale. Furthermore, Meta is going to set up dedicated new architectures training methods. This would allow the algorithm to learn from a wide range of various inputs.
How Does Meta Envisions AI-Based Translation?
According to Zuckerberg, the company is currently working on two different translation models. The first one is being defined as ‘No Language Left Behind’ where Meta aims to teach every single language to the AI model.
Even when there are only limited resources regarding any given language. The idea is to create a model that would allow the algorithm to translate any given language in existence, even with languages in pairs.
The second model is based on their M2M-100 model which was unveiled back in 2020. This model is catered towards a speech-to-speech translation that can happen almost instantaneously across various languages.
That being said, these are some significant claims that Meta is offering. But if the company passes with flying colors, it can potentially revolutionize the way we perceive metaverse.
So, what are your thoughts on Meta’s goal about creating a universal language translator? Let us know in the comment section below, how excited are you about the Metaverse going commercial?
