Download MeowTalk Beta App: Efforts to understand the language of animals have been going on for years about what animals, especially pets, want to say and explain with their specific sounds.
Now experts have developed an application that can be used to translate cat sounds. This app was developed by a former engineer of Amazon Alexa, which aims to translate the cat’s ‘meow’.
A report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), this app called ‘ MeowTalk Beta’ records the sound and then tries to recognize its meaning.
According to the report, the app currently has only 13 phrases in its vocabulary, including phrases like ‘feed me’, ‘I’m angry’ and ‘leave me alone’.
According to one study, unlike humans, not all cats use the same language.
The cats of each cat are unique and according to their owner, of which some cats speak more than others. So the translation of the app is different from each separate profile, rather than a normal database for cat sounds.
By recording and labelling sounds, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning software can better understand each cat’s voice.
Javier Sanchez, group technical program manager at app developer Aquilon, said in a webinar on his website that the ultimate goal of the app is to develop a smart-collar.
He said the technology would instantly translate the cat’s meow and human voice through the collar.
Javier Sanchez added: “I think this app is especially important now because there are people who are confined to homes with cats because of the social distance.”
“It will help them communicate with their cat, or at least understand their cat’s intentions and form a very important relationship,” he said.
MeowTalk Beta which translates cat feathers is available for free on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
