Meta Is Working on an AI-Powered Universal Speech Translator

With the aim to eliminate language barriers for everyone around the globe.

Meta has announced that it plans to release an AI-powered translation software focused on two areas called No Language Left Behind and Universal Speech Translator.

“The ability to communicate with anyone in any language — that’s a superpower people have dreamed of forever, and AI is going to deliver that within our lifetimes,” Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an online presentation. No Language Left Behind will feature AI models that will have the ability to translate using fewer training examples. Meanwhile, Universal Speech Translator will aim to translate speech in real-time “without the need for a written component to serve as an intermediary,” as per The Verge

“Eliminating language barriers would be profound, making it possible for billions of people to access information online in their native or preferred language,” Meta researchers shared in a blog post. “Advances in [machine translation] won’t just help those people who don’t speak one of the languages that dominates the internet today; they’ll also fundamentally change the way people in the world connect and share ideas.”

The company currently has no specific timeframe for the release of these projects. Stay tuned while we wait for more details to surface.
