Microsoft shows a new Hologram that translates keynotes into Japanese

At Microsoft Inspire partner conference, Microsoft showed a new technology that can translate keynotes with ease. The demo was delivered by Julia White, a company executive for Azure who rendered a life-size replica of herself to deliver her keynote in Japanese.

To achieve this, Microsoft used Azure AI and neural text-to-speech which took recordings of White’s voice to create a personalized voice signature which was identical to White’s voice. This is not the first time Microsoft has created life-size holograms of people but with the help of neural text-to-speech and Azure, Microsoft was able to achieve a perfect voice match.

Unfortunately, the tech is still new and one will need a good number of expensive gear to replicate this. That said, Microsoft is currently targetting businesses with the HoloLens 2 but we do expect the company to bring the technology to the mainstream users in the future.
