Siraj Raval explores generative modeling technology.

This innovation is changing the face of the Internet as you read this. It’s now possible to design automated systems that can write novels, act as talking heads in videos, and compose music.

In this episode, Siraj explains how generative modeling works by demoing 3 examples that you can try yourself in your web browser. 

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!
