Skype Translator InfographicSolution ·
Microsoft just published an infographic about how Skype works its automatic speech recognition and translation (also known as Startrek universal translator).
I saw a demo of that technology 2 years ago, having an English and German speakers talking to each other but I didn't think it was that close to productization.
It is a superb showcase for Machine Learning application!
The new Skype's Service is still in preview but you can register to be part of it here.
