Chief Research Officer Rick Rashid demonstrates a speech recognition breakthrough via machine translation that converts his spoken English words into computer-generated Chinese language. The breakthrough is patterned after deep neural networks and significantly reduces errors in spoken as well as written translation.

Lu Pan says:

Not bad, though some sentences in chinese deviated from the actual meanings of the original sentences

joyisrawrsome says:

are the 5 languages ( English, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Spanish) the only ones available so far… why not link with a pronunciation website like forvo.com and – (somehow conglomerate the different peoples voices across a language into one malleable one) be able to recognize any other language 🙂 Best wishes – bc this is very useful technology


wow its amazing how did he do that oh gosh

The most of the crowd is like – since, I do not known Chinese, it seems quite impressive and hence i feel like clapping. Anyway, this is promising.

Shady Chiri says:

Loved it. I am trying to wonder how the inside of the black box works though

M. Hsu says:

still a lot to improve, like translating "lead to" into “导致“ (not accurate) and "the rest of presentation" into"其他的讲座", which means "other presentations" in Chinese.

Leonardo Gonzalez says:

Yesterday I was discussing the upcoming Cortana feature for windows phone and someone pointed out to this video. This is really cool technology, one that could literally break frontiers. I hope they are closer to release it now.

Nicholas Llewellyn says:

Still magical – where is this technology?

Muxxyy says:
