Siraj Raval generates his own voice with AI using some cutting edge techniques.
This is a relatively new technology and people have started generating not just celebrity voices, but entire musical pieces as well. The technology to generate sounds, both voices & music, has been rapidly improving the past few years thanks to deep learning. In this episode, I’ll first demo some AI generated music. Then, i’ll explain the physics of a waveform and how DeepMind used waveform-based data to generate some pretty realistic sounds in 2016. At the end, I’ll describe the cutting edge of generative sound modeling, a paper released just 2 months ago called “MelNet”. Enjoy!
