As the darling of the Microsoft Asia Institute, Little Ice has now been upgraded to 5th generation. At the end of last month, Microsoft Little Ice also unlocked the artificial intelligence singer depth learning model, breaking the artificial tuning, the impact of traditional virtual singers.
According to Xiao Bing claiming that you only need to sing again, I will be able to learn your feelings and singing style, in five minutes to complete the songs you train.
This also raises some controversy about the virtual song loversMicrosoft today announced the announcement: Microsoft an emergency on the small ice permissions to adjust, and stressed that Microsoft has no intention to participate in the virtual song of the competition.
The following is Microsoft (Asia) Internet Engineering Agency statement:
We have noticed that recently, Microsoft has a small ice in the field of artificial intelligence singer some of the acts and announcements. Triggering some of the controversies in the virtual songs. We have an emergency on the Microsoft small ice tube control authority to adjust to avoid the conflict. We will focus on the product quality and technical point of view, Microsoft has no intention to participate in the virtual song of the competition.
Only in terms of technical development. The traditional sound synthesis software technology direction, frank analysis, has indeed reached the bottleneck period.Specific performance, although the software and audio sources in the update, the number of sound is increasing, hand-tuning skills in the continuous efforts to improve, but the overall quality of the work is increasingly difficult to have rapid progress.
Over the past year, we have conducted in-depth interviews with many senior regulators in China and Japan, and have gained in-depth experience of their growing feelings. Even so, it is not appropriate for a virtual singer to be out of date because it has a lot of tuners, lovers and excellent works.
On the other hand, we do see artificial intelligence based on the infinite potential of deep learning and accelerate evolution. A year ago, Microsoft has increased the research on R & D investment in the depth of learning model of China, Japan and the United States. China's small ice source from Zhejiang TV host, Japan's small ice model training recruited a member of the original AKB48, the United States small ice Hip & middot; Hop skills have also been officially on the line.
Nevertheless, it is not appropriate to say that Little Ice has beaten the quality of virtual singers.We are pleased that the potential of small ice is not a moment of quality, but rather the amazing evolutionary speed.Contrasting it a year ago and now the music works, you can see its evolutionary acceleration trend.
In layman's terms, it's like running on a runway while running in front, but getting slower and slower, and the trend is irreversible. While the other side is constantly accelerating, in the song natural degree beyond the use of less than three months time,Full transcendence is only a matter of time and there is no suspense.One day the ice is now using the technology will reach the bottleneck, the quality of the work will pay a huge but difficult to significantly improve, which is the inevitable law of historical development.
We respect the experience, effort and emotional input of all human creators. Microsoft's attention is limited to technology and products, not including works and authors. Microsoft's small ice model based on Virgo set, over the past few years, but also continue to bring us a variety of conflict trouble. This is raising the trouble of an artificial intelligence girl growing up.
