Fabricius | AI way to Learn hieroglyphics from google
After releasing translation engines that include almost all the languages used around the world, Google has launched a new translation engine in support of AI technology, but this time to translate and decipher hieroglyphics.
According to the Daily Mail, the advanced AI algorithms contained in Google’s new Translation Engine, Fabricius, will give archaeologists a quick way to decipher the ancient Egyptian language.
Perhaps the hallmark of google translate’s new engine is that it is available for general use of non-experts in archaeology as a fun and interactive way to learn and write in ancient hieroglyphics.
Everyone can also draw ancient Egyptian symbols and see if Fabricius’s translation engine will be to distinguish pharaonic user drawings and translate them from their hieroglyphic database.
In addition to helping specialists decipher hieroglyphics, Chance Cognore, program manager at Google Arts & Culture, said there is another goal of Google’s introduction of this ai-support engine, which is to contribute to increasing public knowledge of the richness of ancient Egyptian civilization and the legacy of its cultural heritage.
For specialists, “Cognore” explained that fabricius is the first digital tool that will evolve from the traditional method used more than 100 years ago to decipher the ancient Egyptian language, which is to review and read paper books containing the science of hieroglyphic decoding.
Cognore hopes that work will continue to develop the AI of fabricius translation engine to include the possibility of deciphering the languages of other ancient civilizations that have inhabited the Earth for thousands of years.
