Google wants to provide services in a thousand languages

California-based Google announced on Wednesday that it intends to create a new artificial intelligence model, as it plans to provide online services in a thousand languages ​​spoken by most people in the world.

Google researcher Johan Schalkwyk said in a presentation, where Google researcher Johan Schalkwyk said: “Imagine a new African internet user speaking Wolof (mainly speaking in Senegal) using his phone to check where the nearest pharmacy is or which channel is showing the Africa Cup of Nations match. The latest innovations in the field of artificial intelligence were presented to journalists – writes A.S hirado. hu.

More than seven thousand languages ​​are spoken all over the world, but only Google offers its translation software in more than 130 languages. Among its technological achievements related to the artificial intelligence model, the Californian company has set goals to work not only with the texts available on the Internet, but also with videos, images and words.

The company also collects large amounts of audio recordings in various communities, including languages ​​that do not necessarily have a written form.

Within the framework of the planned multi-year program, Google intends to use its achievements in its products, including the YouTube video sharing portal, digital keyboards and translation software, in order to make its online services more accessible in the native language of Internet users and to help them access important content.

With other advances in artificial intelligence, Google has developed tools that allow forest fires to be detected and monitored in real time using satellite imagery.

On Wednesday, Google announced the extension of this service to eighteen additional countries in South America, Asia and Africa.
