Which could lead to improvements in human language translations

– Researchers are making progress in using artificial intelligence to translate animal sounds into human speech.
– AI is taking on many human-to-human translation tasks.
– But some experts say the nuances in speech mean there’s a long way to go before AI can replace human translators.

Your dog’s bark might one day be as understandable as human speech, thanks to recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI).

Researchers are applying machine learning techniques to translate the sounds animals make. It’s part of the rapidly expanding field of AI translation.

“AI helps the translation process in two main ways,” Nataly Kelly, the author of the book “Found in Translation: How Language Shapes Our Lives and Transforms the World,” told Lifewire in an email interview. “First, by improving the grammar and flow of the source text. Second, by automating the translation process fully. Products like Grammarly can improve the original writing, while online tools such as Google Translate automate the translation.”

Will Everyone Be Doctor Doolittle?

The nonprofit Earth Species Project recently published a roadmap that it hopes will enable researchers to translate animal speech using AI machine learning techniques.

“We hypothesize that ML models can provide new insights into non-human communication, and believe that discoveries fueled by these new techniques have the potential to transform our relationship with the rest of nature,” the organization wrote in the blog post about the roadmap. “We also expect that many of the techniques we develop will be useful tools for processing data in applied conservation settings.” […]
