Google Assistant is adding many new voice options created by AI

Google Assistant is one of the most popular and favorite virtual assistants available today.

Google Assistant is one of the most popular and favorite virtual assistants available today thanks to its intelligence, humor, and the great range of voice options it supports. This AI assistant can now speak and sing like singer John Legend in the United States, and can interact with humans in over 30 languages ​​in 80 different countries around the world (with a starting point of 8 types of languages ​​and 14 countries in 2017). In addition, after a long period of training, Google's AI engine is now able to create new voice options with high levels of realism, promising to bring users more exciting experiences.

To enhance the user experience with the Virtual Assistant in a number of countries outside of the United States, Google recently added a second voice option with a more unique rhythm to English (Indian) language packs. Degrees), French, German, Japanese, Dutch, Norwegian, Korean and Italian. In particular, these are all voice options created by Google's own AI engine. Previously, AI also created 11 customized English voices, 6 of which were introduced at the Google I / O 2018 developer conference.

Google Assistant Product Manager, Brant Ward, said each voice option was synthesized by a machine learning system - WaveNet - developed and managed by DeepMind, a company specializing in research and intelligence applications. Artificial intelligence is also part of the Alphabet Group. The way WaveNet creates a new voice option is basically not too complicated. The key element here is intonation in each specific situation, how to be as natural and as realistic as spoken by people. WaveNet creates intonation by identifying the patterns in the speech data to which it is trained, thereby synthesizing and creating new options.

In addition to being able to create conversations with much more accurate intonation than previous AI models, WaveNet also proved to be more efficient in terms of 'creative productivity'. This AI model runs on Google's tenor processing units (TPU), or custom chips built into specially optimized circuits for tasks involving AI model training. As a result, WaveNet takes only 50 milliseconds to create a voice model with basic length.
