Deep Learning AI Mimics Human Voices In 30 Minutes or Less

Advancements made in artificial intelligence are seemingly announced every single week. Earlier this year, Deep Voice 1 was released by Baidu Silicon Valley AI Lab. That system was received with considerable enthusiasm and hesitation alike, as it generates synthetic human voices through deep neural networks. (As it happens, the end result is quite creepy.) Now that Deep Voice 2 has been announced, things have taken a dramatic new turn. Deep Voice 2 Contains Hundreds …

Artificial Intelligence May Keep Crops Safe From Diseases and Pests

The number of use cases for artificial intelligence continues to increase. In recent years, we have seen AI being deployed for gaming purposes and scientific research. A new project is taking things one step further, by using AI to protect crops against disease and pests. This is a major development to say the least, as harvesting crops is becoming more and more difficult these past few years. AI Can Keep …

Why GPUs are Ideal for Deep Learning

Computer processors are designed to handle pretty much anything. However, CPUs are very restricted and as such, can only perform certain mathematical calculations. Highly complicated combinations are off the table due to very long processing time. Graphics cards, on the other hand, have become so specialized that they surpass traditional processors when it comes to rendering large amounts of complex calculations. Some examples include pedestrian detection for autonomous driving, medical …

Home Security Cameras With Personal Assistant Features are Quite Creepy

One could argue the line between a home security camera and interactive assistant tends to fade at certain times. Lighthouse, a new technology startup, seems to think along these same lines. Their new smart camera is designed to be less of a surveillance tool and more of a “companion device” for the home user. Lighthouse’s Home Security Camera Is Intriguing and Scary One of the emerging trends we have seen …
