Amazing Google AI speaks another language in your voice

#artificialintelligence

On Wednesday, Google unveiled Translatotron, an in-development speech-to-speech translation system. It's not the first system to translate speech from one language to another, but Google designed Translatotron to do something other systems can't: retain the original speaker's voice in the translated audio. In other words, the tech could make it sound like you're speaking a language you don't know -- a remarkable step forward on the path to breaking down the global language barrier. According to Google's AI blog, most speech-to-speech translation systems follow a three-step process. First they transcribe the speech.

In a post on Google's AI blog, the team behind the tool explained that instead of using speech-to-text and then text-to-speech to convert voice, it relied on a new model (which runs on a neural network) to develop the new system.
