Google has shared more information about the Universal Speech Model (USM), a system the company describes as a critical first step in realizing its goals, which is now moving closer toward its goal of building an AI language model that supports 1,000 different languages to beat ChatGPT.

In November last year, the company announced its plans to create a language model supporting 1,000 of the world's most-spoken languages while also revealing its USM model.

"USM, which is for use in YouTube (e.g., for closed captions), can perform automatic speech recognition (ASR) not only on widely spoken languages like English and Mandarin, but also on under-resourced languages like Amharic, Cebuano, Assamese, and Azerbaijani to name a few," says Google.

Google currently claims that USM supports over 100 languages and will serve as the foundation for a much larger system.

ChatGPT has lately been making headlines and there may be a ton of factors behind its success. The popular AI Chatbot is also loved by Bill Gates - who is vocal about trying it and finding it amusing.

It comes with several capabilities, albeit depending on how the user chooses to surf it - though one can't be totally dependent on it because of obvious reasons which are its cutoff till 2021, etc.

Google is expected to introduce a host of AI features for its products in the near future, and among them, Gboard for Android is working to integrate the Imagen text-to-image generator

Developed by the company OpenAI, ChatGPT—a generative pre-trained transformer (GPT)—is one application of a large language model. These models are fed massive amounts of text and data on the internet, which they use to predict the most likely sequence of words in response to a prompt. ChatGPT can answer questions, explain complex topics, and even help write code, emails, and essays.

Meanwhile, Google is expected to introduce a host of AI features for its products in the near future, and among them, Gboard for Android is working to integrate the Imagen text-to-image generator.
