Earlier this week Microsoft, CEO Satya Nadella and Skype chief Gurdeep Singh Pall demoed their latest innovation in language translation called (as of now) Skype Translator.
The technology literally brings sic-fi movies to reality by translating different languages in 'Real Time'...
-Check out the video of Skype Translator being demoed below:
Skype Translator results from decades of work by the industry, years of work by our researchers, and now is being developed jointly by the Skype and Microsoft Translator teams. The demo showed near real-time audio translation from English to German and vice versa, combining Skype voice and IM technologies with Microsoft Translator, and neural network-based speech recognition.
Microsoft will start with a handful of languages and only for the Windows version of Skype, though Microsoft hopes to quickly add more languages as well as support for the many types of computers and mobile devices that Skype customers use.
