Ricoh and IBM Watson's 'magic' AI whiteboard translates languages in real time
The interactive whiteboards are powered by IBM's artificial intelligence.
IBM and Ricoh are seeking to revolutionise teleconferencing by launching an interactive whiteboard that leverages the power of IBM's Watson supercomputer and its artificial intelligence. The whiteboard can translate verbal communications in real time into a multitude of languages.
IBTimes UK was at IBM's global Internet of Things (IoT) headquarters in Munich, Germany, to get a first look at the new technology. The Intelligent Workplace Solution is designed to replace all existing teleconferencing technology. Users won't need a TV monitor or any existing video conferencing tools, just the whiteboard, which comes with Voice over IP (VoIP) capabilities.
Meetings hosted via the internet will become collaborative affairs, with users on one end sketching out designs and concepts that the other can see immediately.
