@RadiatingBlade Thanks, my friend
I am a computer scientist, an expert in current and future technology, and a fan of Microsoft.
It is clear that all games, including AOE DE, tend to be more social, and that players communicate with each other.
The proposal is for all Microsoft Studios, Xbox or xCloud games.
In AOE, we enter the room finder.
If all players have a chat that detects and translates any language of the other players to that of the player himself:
- It is feasible to talk about how to create teams with the players present in the game room, before the game.
- it is feasible to propose and make changes, for example, changes in the map, changes in the speed of the game, changes in the maximum number of units allowed, etc.
- it is feasible to be able to create real friendships between players of different languages, and many etc.
That a specific game becomes a social game, giving 100% facilities to all players, easy and fast communication between them, without language barriers … helps retain players in the game, helps players invite their friends, help the game grow and be a star game.
Microsoft will compete in the future with Sony, Nintendo, Google, Amazon, etc,
Microsoft has the technology to do it, in fact, Microsoft can do much more complex things:
Microsoft executive Julia White took the stage at the company’s Inspire partner conference to demonstrate how it’s now possible to not only create an incredibly life-like hologram of a person, but to then make the hologram speak another language in the person’s own voice.
This demo was possible thanks to a combination of two existing technologies - mixed reality and neural text-to-speech - and it foreshadows a future in which tech greatly diminishes existing barriers in human communication.
As for how Microsoft pulled off this remarkable demo, the first step was creating White’s seemingly identical, life-sized hologram. To do that, she visited one of the company’s Mixed Reality capture studios, where she was recorded delivering her presentation in English.
That would be enough to allow anyone wearing one of Microsoft’s HoloLens devices to feel like White was standing in front of them, delivering her speech.
To then make it seem like White was speaking Japanese, Microsoft used its neural text-to-speech technology to create White’s “personalized voice signature.” Once it had that, it could have the hologram say anything, in any language, and the audio would sound like White’s voice.
