Google it never stops. Mountain View giant CEO Sundar Pichai premiered a artificial intelligence model that will teach languages, all over the world, quickly and easily.
As daunting as the task is defined by the engineers who work there themselves, Google is taking an extraordinary step forward in artificial intelligence by preparing to teach foreign languages through Google Search. Google Translate is an essential tool for translating quickly, but now the behemoth takes a leap forward by developing a completely innovative application for language learning.
Virtual assistants, how they will change
Artificial intelligence researchers they have worked for decades to promote a dialogue between computers and humans that feels real, capturing all the nuances of communication between people. Talking to technology, and not using your fingers anymore, is the future of technology: Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and Samsung have developed their own virtual assistants on purpose.
Today they are built into smartphones, speakers, TV controllers, and cameras. Some assistants, such as Google Assistant, Samsung’s Bixby and Amazon’s Alexa, already power cars and appliances, such as smart refrigerators, ovens and washing machines, as we know. But their limitation is that most of them are only able to complete one task at a time. And certainly I am not able to contextualize a request.
Google Tivoli, what it is and how it works
Now, the new project called Tivoli, which began a couple of years, was born from the Google search unit and is likely to be launched by the end of 2021. Tivoli could make it easier to learn new languages by providing natural interaction between the system and the user, as if you were in front of a real tutor.
Of course it is not the first experiment in this sense: the very famous already exist Babbel, Duolingo o Busuu. But for Google the advantage would be twofold: first, it would offer a new service to build user loyalty and then it would make its artificial intelligence work in order to make it more efficient.
Tivoli will initially run on text only, using the LaMDA language model, which was presented at Google I / O 2021. The latter has learned to know the dialogues precisely to better understand the nuances, which is particularly useful for learning a new language.
Googlers are also discussing ways to possibly add functionality to its voice assistant and YouTube product lines. Up YouTube, for example, it could generate in the future language quizzes where viewers register after watching a video and the AI provides an assessment of how they performed.
