Ajit Narayanan: A word game to communicate in any language



While working with kids who have trouble speaking, Ajit Narayanan sketched out a way to think about language in pictures, to relate words and concepts in “maps.” The idea now powers an app that helps nonverbal people communicate, and the big idea behind it, a language concept called FreeSpeech, has exciting potential.

  • Wow a rare and really amazing breakthrough in bilingual history that could possibly tear down the language barrier and the crowd is so dull, man.

  • Whoever asked this guy to speak didn't do their homework. Symbol based speech software has been around for 25 years. This guy hasn't created anything new. He wrote an Indian version of existing US software.

  • He made a universal translator, brilliant! This could completely change how we learn language and schools world wide.You blow my mind Ajit!

  • I think its a brilliant idea of an universal language or algorithm. Not only for less fortunate kids but also for fortunate adults to learn any new language. He deserved more applause and claps and especially when he said The "Free Speech".. Not sure, why these audience not excited of this idea?

  • With an interest in learning a new and first language I am intrigued by this concept. However would such development of an all conquering tool negate the future need to actually learn a new language?

  • What a great person.

  • What this man is doing is undoubtedly revolutionary and is the proof that the most revolutionary things come from completely different needs. For example, the Internet was originally designed for simple data transfer over long distances militarily and watch what originated! In this case is even more powerful, language is something that defines us as human beings and this could change everything and accelerate processes that would take much longer to decode.Maybe could improve completely our corrupted education system. So thank you Ajit Narayanan to make the world a better understanding place.

  • That awkward moment you expect an applause and the public doesn't respond.

    Awkward silence at 10:30, 12:00, 13:34.

    The "This guys don't know what I'm talking about" nervous laugh at 13:50.

    The moment he realizes that it's easier for him to communicate with autistic people than "normal" audiences at 15:22.

  • This could take AI a long way forward as well.
    Between machines, or in stored datagrams no translation would be necessary.

    But then, why not teach people to use it directly as well since it may be less ambiguous than speech?
