Google DeepMind's AI can mimic realistic human speech

Google DeepMind's AI can mimic realistic human speech | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it

It's still pretty easy to tell whether it's a real person who's talking or a text-to-speech program. But there might come a time when a robot could dupe you into thinking that you're speaking with a real person, thanks to a new AI called WaveNet developed by Google's DeepMind team. They have a pretty good track record when it comes to building neural networks -- you probably know them as the folks who created AlphaGo, the AI that defeated one of the world's best Go players.

Currently, developers use one of two methods to create speech programs. One involves using a large collection of words and speech fragments spoken by a single person, which makes sounds and intonations hard to manipulate. The other forms words electronically, depending on how they're supposed to sound

Daniel Goleman is raising the ante with his new book on "Focus." He says, "the game has changed so much that we have to get conscious and intentional about something we took for granted" -- i.e. our ability to attend and focus.

 

Technology is invading our ability to attend at an alarming rate .  We need to develop tools to help us raise our awareness of what is going on in our mind and know how to bring it back. 

 

Turn off Facebook, Twitter, in fact turn off the computer for a day. No cell phone. If this makes you anxious, then it may be time to get some help in learning how to regain control of your mind.
