Thanks to a system created by Regina Barzilay and colleagues at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a computer can act as a translator of ancient languages.
The result of this hard work not only helps the archaeologists to translate the ancient language, but also increased the number of languages that can be automatically translated by the translation system, such as Google Translate.
Quoted from Big News Networks, the computer system makes certain assumptions between languages with one another, for example, the Jewish language. This system also relies on a systematic way to map the alphabet of a language into another language alphabet.
However, Barzilay warned however that this system can not replace human translations done. "But at least, can assist with their work," he said crisply.
