  • Patent number: 10810379
    Abstract: A statistics-based machine translation method is disclosed. The method generates probabilities of translation from a sentence to be translated to candidate translated texts based on features of the candidate translated texts that affect the probabilities of translation and a pre-generated translation probability prediction model. The features that affect probabilities of translation include at least degrees of semantic similarity between the sentence to be translated and the candidate translated texts. A preset number of candidate translated texts with highly ranked probabilities of translation are selected to serve as translated texts of the sentence to be translated. The method is able to go deep into a semantic level of a natural language when a machine translation model is constructed to avoid a semantic deviation of a translated text from an original text, thereby achieving the effect of improving the quality of translation.

  • Patent number: 10789475
    Abstract: A method for offline-service multi-user interaction based on augmented reality (AR) includes scanning, by an AR client terminal of a user, an offline service label at an offline service site. Information of the offline service label is transmitted to a server terminal. Based on the information of the offline service label, the server terminal establishes a service group including the user and a second user that scanned the offline service label. In response to transmitting the information of the offline service label, service data is received from the server terminal. The service data includes information related to the user and information related to the second user. Based on the service data, a service interactive interface is outputted. The service interactive interface displays the information related to the user and the information related to the second user at a position corresponding to the offline service label in an AR scene.
