(Video) Former Amazon Engineer Creates Cat Translator App

Published

on

Don’t we all just wonder what our cat is saying to us sometimes? Well, a former Amazon engineer might just help you understand them.

'MeowTalk,' an app that translates cat sounds, is a pet project for this former Alexa engineer - GeekWire

Javier Sanchez, who was a part of the Amazon Alexa project is now managing a project with the Bellvue, Washington tech company, Akvelon.

The app, MeowTalk, is to change feline vocalizations into words that we can read and understand.

“It’s not a language. They don’t share words or communicate with each other. Cats never meow at each other out in nature,” Sanchez told the local NBC affiliate about meows.

The researchers find that there are nine different intentions that make up a sound from these furry creatures – each meow has its own specific sound and meaning. Even so, each cat has its own unique sound that goes beyond the list of generics.

Just like Alexa, the app can collect data to understand your furry friend better. The users can record their cat’s meows and get a translation based on what vocalization it falls into. The users can also provide feedback for the app to improve better.

“You can train the MeowTalk app to learn your cat’s unique vocabulary of meows (cat talk) by telling the app what each meow means when your cat makes it. When you give the app 5 to 10 examples of a specific meow for your cat (e.g. “food”, “let me out”) the app can start to recognize that meow (be your cat translator) when it hears it,” reads the app’s description.

MeowTalk is still under development and is continually being refined and updated, but the prototype is available to download now for Apple and Andriod phones.

Sanchez hopes the app proves to be successful and that he and his team will eventually be able to develop a collar that translates your cat’s meows as they are speaking.

He stated in his posting, “I really did not notice the voice that entered my live video. I did not hear anything when I am doing that Instagram Live. At first, I’m just doing a normal live video on Instagram. Then we played some riddles about name and age. Who wins would get RM150”.

He also added, “Then, when I looked at the comment section. everyone said that they heard a crying voice while I did not hear anything in there”.

Shuk added, he only noticed the incident when people sent him the short clip then he really heard the voice of a woman crying.

“Honestly, I just recently moved into this house and I never had the chance to do any “doa Selamat” yet. It’s okay, tomorrow I will seek an Ustaz to confirm what actually happen”, he said in his posting.

A user on Twitter, under the name @mayom____, has shared a video, showing a man who’s making roti canai, a very popular dish in Malaysia, while singing to a Malay song.

Turns out, the man in the video is the actual singer of the song! He used to sing and entertain fans, now it does not win the hand of serving customers and spreading roti canai at a shop in Kampung Sungai Petai.

In the tweet, there was a Twitter user who explained that the man was the vocalist of the group Arrow, Ringgo, which was once popular in Malaysia.

That is the routine life of the vocalist, Ringgo which is far different compared to 26 years ago. He serves food now for a living, especially after the Movement Control Order (PKP) started last March.

In the video, you can see the man flipping roti canai as he sings the lyrics to his song, ever so effortlessly. For the full video, you all can watch it here that was uploaded by Nick Yie Channel.
