Google to develop AI model supporting 1,000 popular global languages

Google has already integrated 1000 popular languages across the world into Google Search, despite the criticism about their functionality. The Models of language were reportedly facing some flaws, like re-enacting harmful societal biases like xenophobia, racism and more.

Google has announced an ambitious new project to build a single AI language model which could support around 1,000 of the most spoken languages from around the world.

According to The Verge, as a first step toward this goal, the company has been unveiling an AI model, which has been trained in over 400 languages, which is called "the largest language coverage seen in a speech model today."

"The company believes that creating a model of this size will make it easier to bring various AI functionalities to languages that are poorly represented in online spaces and AI training datasets (also known as "low-resource languages')," Zoubin Ghahramani, vice president of research at Google AI was quoted as saying.

"By having a single model that is exposed to and trained on many different languages, we get much better performance on our low-resource languages," he added.

These language models have already been integrated into Google Search, despite criticism about their functionality. Models of language have some flaws, such as re-enacting harmful societal biases such as racism and xenophobia and failing to comprehend human-oriented language.

The company has fired its own researchers for publishing papers highlighting these issues, according to a report.

Moreover, the company shared new research on text-to-video models, a prototype AI writing assistant called Wordcraft, and an update to its AI Test Kitchen app that allows users access to under-development AI models like Imagen, which converts text into images, it added.
