Microsoft created a hologram that transforms people into digital speakers in other languages. Microsoft unveiled the technology at a keynote address at the Las Inspire Partner Conference in Las Vegas today. Microsoft recently scanned Julia White, Azure's corporate executive, at the Mixed Reality Capture Studio to make exact copies of the holograms.
A digital version appeared on stage and translated the keynote into Japanese. Microsoft has made this possible using Azure artificial intelligence and neural text. It works by recording the voice of White to make a personal voice signature so that she can sound like she speaks in Japanese.
Microsoft has previously presented holograms, but the translation side is possible with a holographic lens. This seems to be a demonstration right now. And to take advantage of this, you need access to the Mixed Reality capture studio. Microsoft's studio is equipped with lighting equipment and a high-resolution camera, so you can capture someone's exact digital hologram. It's not something you can do easily with a smartphone at home yet.
Microsoft's demonstration is still impressive We talk about the ambitions of Azure, HoloLens and beyond. HoloLens 2 may be aiming for the current business, but is attempting to create software and services that assess where the augmented reality will go.
