Google’s lip-reading AI knocks out humans Lip-reading could be an extremely difficult task for a human, but with artificial intelligence, it could be a lot easier to discern speech. Researchers from Google’s DeepMind and the University of Oxford have managed to create a lip-reading AI that defeats the professionals in recognizing speech.
