PonderNet: Learning to Ponder

Humans don’t spend the same amount of mental effort on all problems equally. Instead, we respond quickly to easy tasks, and we take our time to deliberate hard tasks. DeepMind’s PonderNet attempts to achieve the same by dynamically deciding how many computation steps to allocate to any single input sample. This is done via a […]

End-to-End Adversarial Text-to-Speech

Text-to-speech engines are usually multi-stage pipelines that transform the signal into many intermediate representations and require supervision at each step. When trying to train TTS end-to-end, the alignment problem arises: Which text corresponds to which piece of sound? This paper uses an alignment module to tackle this problem and produces astonishingly good sound. Paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/2006.03575 […]
