Luis von Ahn (Trinity '00), Nico Habermann Associate Professor of Computer Science
Carnegie Mellon University, wants to translate the Web into every major language -- every webpage, every video, and, yes, even Justin Bieber's tweets. With its content split up into hundreds of languages, most of the Web is inaccessible to most people in the world. This problem is pressing with millions of people from quickly developing regions entering the Web. In this talk, Professor von Ahn introduces his new project, called Duolingo, which aims at breaking this language barrier, and thus making the Web truly "world wide."
