Found in Translation is an interactive, immersive installation for the exhibition Translations at 21_21 Design Sight in Tokyo. Using their own spoken sentences, visitors viscerally experience the process of machine translation. Visualizations show how the machine learning model clusters words from different languages by semantic similarity, and translations are presented typographically and auditorily across 24 languages.
