An Introduction to Generative Adversarial Networks (with code in TensorFlow)

There has been a large increase in interest in generative AI models of late. Here’s a great introductory article (complete with code) on GAN’s in TensorFlow. hese are models that can learn to create data that is similar to data that we give them. The intuition behind this is that if we can get 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 […]

The Rise of Deepfakes

Deepfakes leverage powerful techniques from machine learning and artificial intelligence to generate visual and audio content with a such a high degree of realism that it has enormous potential to deceive. This article in Medium explores efforts into research and development into creating countermeasures to such bogus content. Within recent months, a number of mitigation […]
