In 2018, The Goolge’s Tacotron team created a text to speech synthesizer that can copy your voice after listening just 5 seconds. https://google.github.io/tacotron/publications/speaker_adaptation/
CS294-158 Deep Unsupervised Learning Spring 2019
Lectures, papers and assignments for Berkeyls Deep Unsupervised Learning Course are now available here:
The course deals with 2 areas of deep learning, namely Deep Generative Models and Self-supervised Learning.
- Generative adversarial networks
- variational autoencoders
- autoregressive models
- flow models
- energy based models
- self-supervised learning
- semi-supervised learning.
The course is currently ongoing so not all lectures are available yet.
