Roblox’s Real-Time Chat Translator
Roblox just released a real-time chat translator that supports 16 languages and levels the language barrier.
Have you ever played an online game with someone across the world and were frustrated because you couldn’t understand what the fudge they were saying?
Well, Roblox just opened the door to seamless communication with their brand-new AI chat translator. This innovative tool instantly translates text messages in-game, allowing players from all over the world to chat, collaborate, and forge friendships without language ever being a hurdle.
So how did they pull this off?
Well, Roblox didn’t rely on readily available translation solutions. Instead, they opted to build their own custom AI model. This LLM was trained on a massive dataset of text and code, including publicly available data and Roblox-specific information.
To ensure efficiency and handle multiple languages simultaneously, they employed a clever MoE architecture. Essentially, this involved training several smaller translation experts, each specializing in a specific language, within the larger LLM framework. This allowed them to translate across 16 languages without needing 16 separate models, saving resources and ensuring smooth performance.
And the results speak for themselves: players can chat in real-time, seamlessly understanding each other, regardless of their native language, which is cool.
One of the joys of online gaming is meeting new people and realizing you have more in common than you thought.
