Google Develops Sign Language Detection Engine in Video Calls

Google now allows sign language to be changed in the language in video calls. This is based on the latest research on Google, as reported by TechCrunch, Monday (5/10/2020).

Google developed a real-time sign language detection engine that can tell when someone started with sign language and when they finished.

Such systems are possible with very little latency. Latency has a big impact on sign language detection so that videos are not delayed or quality degraded. So, Google makes a system that is lightweight and reliable.

The system first runs a video model called PostNet, which estimates body and limb position.

As Antara reported, this simplified visual information (basically with lines) is sent to a system that is trained in pose data from videos of people using German Sign Language and compares the live image to the resulting line views of the movement.

This simple process already results in 80 percent accuracy in predicting whether someone is using sign language or not, and with some additional optimizations it gets up to 91.5 percent accuracy.

Compared to how the detection of “active speech” on most video calls can only tell if someone is speaking, can’t even distinguish a cough, the numbers are pretty good.

To work without adding the “someone is using sign language” signal to the call, the system uses a clever trick, by using a virtual audio source to produce a 20kHz tone, which is outside the range of human hearing but noticed by the computer audio system.

This signal is generated whenever the person uses sign language, making the speech detection algorithm “think” that they are speaking aloud. Currently, the system is still in the demo stage.

Google Threatens to Stop Its Search Engine Service in Australia, Why

Google has just announced that it is threatening the Australian government to stop its search engine services or search engines.

This was done by Google because it did not agree with new laws that have been issued by the Australian government where Google must pay news publishers for content displayed on Google Search.

Apart from Google, other technology companies such as Facebook are also entering and must comply with the new regulations. Then Google was the first and said that it did not agree.

“If this rule becomes law, we will have no choice but to stop Google Search services in Australia,” said Vice President of Google Australia and New Zealand, Meg Silva quoted from The Verge.

It states that Google was forced to decide this because they had no other choice and they also didn’t want to spend a lot of money just to comply with regulations in one country.

“It will bring things that we cannot sustain for this business, the digital economy, and do not fit the way search engines work,” Google continued.

Actually, Google has announced a program to pay a number of news publishers in Australia, Germany, and Brazil, but the Australian government thinks that this is still not enough so they make this law.

WhatsApp is increasingly anxious to be left by the user, now advertises in newspapers

India, which is one of the largest WhatsApp user countries in the world, is busy deleting WhatsApp and switching to rival applications such as Signal and Telegram.

Indeed WhatsApp has finally postponed its new privacy policy, but it seems that this is not enough to stem user migration.

Most recently, WhatsApp has advertised in newspapers to convince its users that they care about user privacy.

WhatsApp spent a lot of money to advertise in 10 newspapers that speak English and Hindi.

“WhatsApp respects and protects your privacy. Respect for your privacy is embedded in our DNA” reads the WhatsApp ad.

WhatsApp has clarified that its data-sharing policy with Facebook does not affect the privacy of messages sent by users.

Encryption continues and WhatsApp until Facebook can’t read the messages sent. WhatsApp’s actions to advertise are actually quite reasonable.

Facebook has an estimated $5.7 billion investment in India so there is no way they will let it drift for nothing.

Such an investment is aimed at boosting digital transactions for MSMEs in India. WhatsApp has also received government permission to launch WhatsApp Pay.

Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

In response to this, Microsoft will increase the file upload limit from 100GB to 250GB. These upload limits will apply to OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint.

In addition, this upload limit is also available to personal OneDrive users. Reportedly, this feature will be available at the end of January 2021.

Microsoft in a written statement said to continue to strive to support workers around the world. He said he accepted all feedback given by customers.

Previously, Microsoft had increased the upload limit from 15GB to 100GB in July 2020.

Microsoft Teams Will Compete with Browsers

Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said Microsoft Teams will be as important as internet browsers and operating systems. This means that Teams will be a service that is prioritized by their users.

This statement came after Nadella highlighted the growth of Teams over the last few years.

According to company data, there were a surge of inactive users from 13 million users in July 2019 to 115 million users in September 2020.
