Language is one of the things used by humans to communicate with each other. The use of language has been around for a long time, and now there are more than 6,500 languages available worldwide.
Speaking of languages, recently, Google has presented a web-based application called Fabricius, which can translate Old Egyptian into English or vice versa.
It is known that the tool has a system similar to Google Translate; it’s just that the application can decipher hieroglyphic codes armed with machine learning and AI.
“Fabricius became the first digital tool to support further development in ancient language studies. Translating Egyptian hieroglyphics was built using machine learning,” Google said when presenting the application.
Later, users can translate using text to emojis. There are several modes available in this application, such as learning, playing, and research modes.
Now Google has also presented this Fabricius service in an open-source that can make all people can together make Fabricius an application that can help people to learn about the language of Ancient Egypt even deeper.
