Artificial intelligence from Baidu themselves have learned to speak

The Chinese company Baidu, which owns the eponymous search engine, has been developing its own artificial intelligence. Research began in 2013, and now AI from Baidu shows very good results. For example, he recently learned to speak without the aid of man. On the days of the text-to-speech, which is called a Deep Voice.

The neural Network used the principles of deep learning for speech analysis and mapping it with text, then start quite bearable to say the words. First Deep Voice sows the word into individual sounds, and then enters data into the TTS system speaks the desired word. The results are far from perfect, so Baidu is still a lot of work.

Despite significant progress, the Chinese search giant, Google continues to lead in this area. Its system of WaveNet already successfully synthesizes the speech based on «read» earlier text. Now American design is able to speak two languages, and experts continue to work on it. At the moment Google is hiring new staff, planning to increase the staff by two times.
