When travelling abroad, it can be difficult to communicate with those who don’t speak the same language as you.
But thankfully, the days of having to quickly flick through your translation dictionary could soon be a thing of the past.
A technology firm has launched a new earpiece called One2One which translates spoken conversations within seconds.
The incredible earpiece, which is powered by IBM Watson’s artificial intelligence system, will hit global markets next month.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The device supports translations across eight languages – English, Japanese, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, German and Chinese.
While most translation devices, rely on WiFi or Bluetooth, the One2One does not rely on either.
Instead, it uses IBM Watson’s Natural Language Understanding and Language Translator APIs – an artificial intelligence system.
