Baidu to debut simultaneous machine translation

Baidu, operator of China’s largest search engine and a national champion in artificial intelligence, is set to debut its first simultaneous translation system, in latest challenge to Google.

The upcoming public demonstration is scheduled for the company’s annual Baidu World tech showcase on November 1. It comes a year after its US-based rival released earbuds that claim to be able to translate 40 languages in close to real time.

The Baidu system, however, claims to be the first with “anticipation capabilities and controllable latency” – the latter enabling users to adjust the trade-off between word delay and translation quality – according to a whitepaper the Nasdaq-listed company released on October 23.
