- Google's using deep neural nets to power this software. "If you're translating a foreign menu or sign with the latest version of Google's Translate app, you're now using a deep neural net," Google software engineer Otavio Good wrote.
- When a camera image is taken, Google Translate first looks for letters in the picture. (Again, using a neural network.) But the real challenge is running neural networks on a phone, instead of supercomputers in data centers. Google's team optimized its software for mobile SIMD processors.
- Google Translate offers real-time two-way translation for English, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, Hungarian, Indonesian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, Swedish, Turkish and Ukrainian.
Google Can Translate 27 Languages Almost Instantly, Thanks to Neural Networks
