Google’s DeepMind brought us artificial intelligence systems that can play Atari classics and the complex game of Go as well as — no, better than — humans.
Now, the artificial intelligence research firm is at it again. This time, its machines are getting really good at sounding like humans.
In a blog post Thursday, DeepMind unveiled WaveNet, an artificial intelligence system that the company says outperforms existing text-to-speech technologies by 50 percent. WaveNet learns from raw audio files and then produces digital sound waves that resemble those produced by the human voice, which is an entirely different approach.
Someday, man and machine will routinely strike up conversations with each other. We’re not there yet, but natural language processing is a scorching hot area of AI research — Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft are all in pursuit of savvy digital assistants that can verbally help us interact with our devices.
Right now, computers are pretty good listeners, because deep learning algorithms have taken speech recognition to a new level. But computers still aren’t very good speakers. Most text-to-speech systems are still based on concatenative TTS — basically, cobbling words together from a massive database of sound fragments.
Other systems form a voice electronically, based on rules about how letter combinations are pronounced. Both approaches yield rather robot-y sounding voices. WaveNet is different.
Flexing Those Computing Muscles
WaveNet is an artificial neural network, that, at least on paper, resembles the architecture of the human brain. Data inputs flow through layers of interconnected nodes — the “neurons” — to produce an output. This allows computers to process mountains of data, and recognize patterns that would perhaps take humans a lifetime to uncover.
To model speech, WaveNet was fed real waveforms of English and Mandarin speech. These waveforms are loaded with data points, roughly 16,000 to sample per second, and WaveNet digests them all.

Dropbox, Google Apps, Amazon Cloud and Microsoft Ondrive Live are good products and competitive in the market place they serve, but they are just cloud storage. They all store files off-site in an NTFS type file store. SharePoint on-line stores files in a SQL database delivering huge advantages in security, file grouping, file analysis and file location.
What does this mean in practice? – If you consider a standard NTFS file storage system such as you would find on any computer.
When you create and save a file you are prompted to give the file a name so that you can find it again when it is needed. Most modern software will also be configured to save the file to a default location such as ‘documents’ or ‘my documents’. You can elect to modify the location by creating new sub-folders within the ‘documents’ folder. This way you can group similar files together, say by subject or function. So, a user’s documents area may have sub-folders like ‘invoices’, ‘orders’, Fred Blogs Ltd, etc. In addition, the NTFS file store will record ‘date created’, ‘date modified’ and ‘file size’ for each file. Standalone computers usually have the default ‘documents’ folder on a local hard disk drive or a cloud resource, but networked computers are often configured to default to a department, or team ‘documents’ area that is a network share on a server and all users store their documents here either in a personalised folder or in team folders where other users can access them as required. This practise makes it simpler for the IT team to copy the files to a backup device to protect against file loss or corruption.
This system works and has served well for decades, but it has weaknesses.
1. File naming is open to each individual user preference. The human mind is individual and what may be obvious as to one individual as a distinctive file name is often confusing for other users. This can be overcome by enforcing a corporate ‘standard’ for file naming, but that requires training for users in what they must, and must not, include in a file name.
2. As users can create sub-folders within the storage area and files can end up being buried many layers deep in a file system.
3. By default, the file search facility in a NTFS system searches file names, created date and modified date. This can be changed to enable indexing by metadata and even content search, but this slows the whole storage system down to a considerable degree. Additionally, file searches in NTFS systems usually take quite a long time, especially if the file resides in a storage area used by many people.
