MDATA lab seminar : October 25th 8:30 am EST
Recently, deep learning-based text-to-speech (TTS) and voice conversion/changer (VC) have been successfully researched with various studies and adapted to real-world applications. In this tutorial, we start with the basic concepts of AI generative modeling to understand how it works. The tutorial will also include introduction of famous works on TTS and VC, and code review of the state-of-the-art AI voice changer (Assem-VC).
