[VIDEO] A new online multilingual dictionary hopes to compile all words from every language in the world.

An interactive multilingual dictionary has long been a pipe dream of artificial intelligence researchers.

Now, an extremely ambitious online dictionary hopes to solve that problem by compiling every word in every language. If funded, it could change the way machines translate between languages.

The self-proclaimed "Dictionary of the Future" is called the Kamusi Global Online Living Dictionary (GOLD), and launched this week to follow International Mother Tongue Day on February 21.
