Say goodbye to feeling lost in translation.
A company has now created a “tiny wireless earbud that fits in your ear and translates the language you hear into the language you understand”, says a recent post by Interesting Engineering. Powered by AI, this tiny device will make language barriers disappear and help you communicate with people from different countries. You will be able to take it with you to make the most out of your vacations, or even use it in a business meeting.
But this emerging technology can also help us better our societies. Like a Chinese proverb says: to understand “a foreign language is to have one more window from which to look at the world”. We will be able to listen to new perspectives, different concerns and worries, different life stories. To understand more people and be more interconnected. It will also further democratise education; many online resources are only available in English. Therefore, this device will enable people who are not English-speakers tap into this knowledge and grow their skills.
